Overview

The palate is round and gentle, both rich and dense, with an unctuous, fruity texture. The ripeness of the fruit is clear, unctuous and penetrating. You will find yourself suddenly transported into a superb garden amid a riot of scented flowers, divinely refreshed by firm, strong and quite minerally acidity.

Expert Reviews

A wonderful Champagne for the precision and tight-wound complexity it offers. With grilled brioche and tasty nougat-like nuts and spice, some charcuterie and almost anise-like spice - really striking - it's chalky, fresh and full of interest. The palate's powerful and composed, and acidity is a feature. There's citrus and some dried red fruits, biscuit spices and grilled hazelnut throughout, before a taut and tensile, engaging finish.

Score: 95

An intense bouquet developing spicy and sweet aromas (cedar, cigar box) combined with juicy ripe fruit (yellow peach) and chocolaty hints. Almost overwhelmingly, the nose reveals all the riches of ripe fruit, concentrated in the sunshine of 2005.

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.
