Overview

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

Colour

Very shiny golden colour, with green tints. Fine regular bubbles.

Palate

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.

Palate

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.

Cellaring Potential

Now to 2016.

Food Matching

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.

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.
