Overview

On the palate there is first of all a soft, full, creamy sensation which progresses to a strong, lively, almost chalky flavor, the hallmark of Mesnil, Avize and Cramant Chardonnays. The mid-palate incorporates the full ripeness of white peach, a touch of meatiness with fresh acid balance and a sensual gentleness. The finish is crisp and long. This is a blanc de blancs made to last, but which is already very seductive!

Expert Reviews

The 2004 Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs is pure class and maintains intensity on a very long finish. Ken Gargett, The Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine (Dec/Jan 2011)

A firm champagne, displaying a floral quality to the biscuit, pear and light spice notes. This shows fine balance and good drive to the acidity, straight through to the delicate finish. Drink now through 2012.90/100 Wine Spectator(Dec/2010)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Champagne Louis Roederer, founded in 1776, remains one of the very rare family Champagne businesses. For two centuries, six succeeding generations have been inspired by the same concern for quality. Frederic Rouzaud took up the reins in early 2006 from his father Jean-Claude Rouzaud who remains Chairman of the Board. Jean-Claude, grandson of Madame Camille Olry-Roederer and himself a trained Oenologist had led the company for 38 years, and is referred to as the 'Sage' of Champagne (the wise man of Champagne).

Frederic has spent the past 10 years working with his father in all areas of production and business and will bring his great business acumen and academic background to the company. Louis Roederer is unique in Champagne owning two-thirds of the vineyards for their total production covering the Pinot Noir sub regions of "Montagne de Reims" and "Vallee de la Marne" with Chardonnay from the "Cotes des Blanc". By 1995, recent acquisitions had increased Louis Roederer's holding from 180 hectares to almost 190 hectares, ranking 97.5% on the offi cial classifi cation scale.
