Louis Roederer’s familiarity with the terroirs dates back to 1776, practising separate winemaking processes and controlling the production of bubbles. At the heart of the Côte des Blancs vineyards, where Chardonnay expresses itself with so much finesse and subtlety on limestone soils, Louis Roederer selected two exceptional grands crus (Le Mesnil sur Oger and Avize) whose distinctive and complementary characteristics allow intense wines to be produced, expressing both finesse and rich aromas. This elegant, racy cuvée, quickly became the favourite wine of the Roederer family for major family events.

Winery Tasting Notes
Very shiny golden colour, with green tints. Fine regular bubbles.
Delicate, young, springlike bouquet, focusing on floral aromas (hawthorn), fresh white fruit (pear, fruit amandine) and citrus (candied lemon) with a few hints of roasted almonds.
On the palate there is first of all a soft, full, creamy sensation which moves on quickly to a strong, lively, almost «chalky» taste - the hallmark of great Mesnil, Avize and Cramant chardonnays. In the middle, it perfectly incorporates the full ripeness of fruit (white peach), meatiness, wininess and freshness, in a well-balanced whole which is seductive and sensually gentle. The longlasting taste is emphasised by the acidity, which although present is completely enveloped
by the density and sweetness of the wine. This is a blanc de blancs which is made to last, but which already has a well-established seductiveness.
Now to 2016.
Serve chilled (8-10 degrees Celsius). Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs is an exquisite aperitif. The essence of freshness, finesse and elegance Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs is at its finest with seafood, fish and goats cheese.
