Description & Technical Information
The Rodez family has been producing champagne for generations, currently owned by the eighth generation, Eric and Martine Rodez. Based in Ambonnay, the family owns 9 hectares of Pinot Noir planted along the south and south-eastern facing slopes of the village. In total Eric Rodez cultivates 16 hectares of vineyards, divided between 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. Eric Rodez developed his passion for blending when he was working at Krug and now blends between five to ten different vintages to create some cuvées. In 2012, Champagne Rodez received the Haute Valuer Environmentale certificate, due to the practices of organic and biodynamically farming and water management; Rodez was the first French agricultural domaine to receive the award. 95% of the wine Eric Rodez Blanc de Noirs uses go through no malolatic fermentation.

Vinified in oak (90%) and enameled steel vats (10%) to add more complexity, the blend includes only wines without malolatic fermentation. Blended from 2010 (25%), 2009 (26%), 2008 (22%), 2007 (13%), 2006 (8%), 2005 (6%)

Champagne Eric Rodez Overview
Expert Reviews
“Disgorged in March 2018, the latest installment of Rodez’s NV Brut Cuvée des Grand Vintages unfurls in the glass with a rich bouquet of buttered yellow orchard fruit, wheat toast, peach and honeycomb that’s framed by a touch of oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a frothy mousse, a generous core of ripe but tangy fruit, brisk acids, chewy structure and a long, lingering finish. This is a powerful but integrated wine that exemplifies the Rodez style.”
William Kelley
“Disgorged in April 2020 with three grams per liter dosage, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Cuvée des Grand Vintages wafts from the glass with inviting aromas of pear, toasted almonds, dried white flowers, honeycomb, peach and nougat. Full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and enveloping, with ripe but racy acids, a pillowy mousse and a nicely layered core, it's already quite expressive despite its recent disgorgement, but I suspect it will show even more depth and dimension with another year or two on cork.”
