Louis Roederer’s Blanc de Blancs is a pure, taut, fine and bright wine. Its contrasting tones range from an intense, chiselled acidity to the supple lightness of notes of fresh hazelnuts, almonds, and white flowers with accents of acacia, broom, and honeysuckle.
100% Chardonnay, the Blanc de Blancs cuvée is aged for five years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity. The dosage varies from 8 to 10 g/l depending on the vintage.

Winery Tasting Notes
Light golden hue with brilliant green glints. Fine and regular effervescence with a persistent cordon of bubbles.
A refined and complex bouquet, in which all the intensity of the northern Chardonnay is revealed; floral nuances with slight hints of honey, candied citrus peel, and finely toasted dried fruits. These intense, spring flavours create an impression of sweetness and sustained depth.
The attack is luscious and smooth, sustained by salty notes, with a chiselled, precise, and very pure texture on the palate. The flavours of yellow fruits, spices, and dry fruits penetrate and blend impeccably with the chalky, almost powdery freshness. Lastly, fine tannins lengthen the finish.
Blanc de Blanc 2008 is characterised by discreet elegance and its harmonious blend of substance and freshness. The 2008 vintage perfectly expresses the full potential of the Côte des Blancs Grands Crus vineyards.
