Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs 2010 Champagne

More vintages: 2009Louis Roederer, the largest independent, family-managed champagne maker is the fortunate proprietor to 235 hectares of sublimely located vineyards, supplying 70% of its needs for an annual production of 3 million bottles. Uniquely, after 10 years of experimentation, they are beginning to witness the benefits of a biodynamically managed vineyard. Chef de Cave, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon is particular about Louis Roederer's craft; "We don't blend, we combine," he says. "I love art, and like a great painter we add colour rather than blending."

At the heart of the Côte des Blancs vineyards, where Chardonnay expresses itself with so much finesse on limestone soils, Louis Roederer selected two outstanding grand crus (Le Mesnil sur Oger and Avize), whose distinctive characteristics allow the production of wines expressing both finesse and rich aromas. The Blanc de Blancs cuvée quickly became the favourite wine of the Roederer family for major family events and is 100% estate-bottled from the grapes of the historic family-owned vineyards. Drawn at low pressure for a richer, fuller flow of bubbles, it is matured for an average of five years in the cellar and left to rest for six months after disgorgement. 10% of the wines have been matured for an average of five years in the cellars and left to rest for six months after disgorging to complete its maturation.

2010 harvest was marked by a very cold winter with heavy frost patches, moving to the spring and early summer months the weather improved and temperatures were cool and consistent. However, August and September experienced awful weather of plenty of storms and humid conditions which made ripening complicated. Pinot Noir became a fragile harvest, but the Chardonnays on the Cote des Blancs excelled.

A golden yellow colour with hints of green with a fine stream of bubbles. Initially on the nose there is an intense bouquet of plums and mango with hints of citrus fruits. On the palate a more rounded apple flavour combined with balanced acidity of lemon and vanilla.

Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Dosage: 9 g/L

“Fragrant, bright white fruits on the nose lined by pretty toasty note. Round palate with fresh acidity but not very long. The fruitiness is ample, ripe and delicious.”
