The Blanc de Blancs 2011 cuvée was drawn off at low pressure in order to create a rounder and smoother effervescence. It was bottle-aged for 5 years and then left to rest for a further 8 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is 9 g/l.

Vintage Notes

This cool, wet year paradoxically resulted in a historically early harvest for Louis Roederer. It was a ‘reversed-season’ with a warm, dry winter followed by almost summer-like weather throughout the spring. Summer got off to a cooler, more autumnal start and the cold, rainy weather continued until the end of August. Summer finally arrived in September, which enjoyed warm temperatures throughout the month. Maturation was outstanding, unexpectedly so given the mediocre weather conditions during the year. The 2011 vintage required patience as well as a rigorous sorting of the grapes at harvest time since (as was the case for the 2010 vintage), only the south-facing vines and those loaded with fewer clusters managed to reach satisfactory levels of ripeness.

2011 was a 'chardonnay year', in the sense that no Cristal and no regular Vintage Brut were made because the pinot noir failed. This is a very fine, tight, singular blanc de blancs with wonderful palate harmony and a clean, refreshing finish. It finishes very dry but also soft and supple. (Based on the grand cru Avize. 18% wood matured. Dosage 9 grams/litre).

Winery Tasting Notes


Bright clear hue with deep lemon-yellow and greenish tints


The nose is discreet and delicate, the most prominent notes being of orchard fruits such as apple and pear. After aeration, the apple aromas take on more caramelised scents of baked apple, tarte tatin and finely roasted hazelnut. The Chardonnay then develops a limestone character with mineral notes of hot stone, delicate spice, candied lemon, citrus, graphite, and even a hint of tobacco.


The wine is velvety on entry to the palate, with a soft, smooth texture which dominates the palate, coating it with a delicate yet concentrated mouthfeel. It then broadens to reveal a zesty yet mineral freshness. The wine continues to take shape on the palate showing density at first, followed by chocolatey, almost tannic, notes and then finally a slightly bitter freshness that lengthens the finish. The undeniably saline end-palate is underpinned by an interminable chalky freshness that makes your mouth water, refreshes the palate, and invites you to take another sip!

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 official classification scale.
