Description & Technical Information
-
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.

A light golden colour and a full flow of bubbles, the bouquet reveals the classic complexity of northern Chardonnay. A level of richness, intensity and purity on the palate almost suggest the presence of red grapes. The fruity, zesty character makes this a powerhouse, and one that will age very well. Complex, but well-balanced, Blanc de Blancs 2008 perfectly expresses the full potential of the Côte des Blancs grand crus vineyards.

Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Dosage: 8 to 9 g/L
Disgorged: 2014

Expert Reviews
92/100
Essi Avellan MW
“Soft, open, fruit-driven nose of vanilla, pineapple, lemon zest and ground chalk. Such a pure palate, feels bare-naked. There is so much drive here and a lovely acid line. Smooth yet possesses an energizing zestiness. An epitome of finesse.”
94/100
Roger Voss
“Tight with acidity and minerality, this is a precocious Champagne from a great vintage. Citrus and crisp apple flavors are allied to a strongly zesty character that brings out the chalk terroir of the Côte des Blancs in Champagne. Certainly the wine will age, so keep and drink from 2016.”
94/100
Joshua Greene
“Chardonnay's chamomille and meadow flower scents race out of this wine's taut richness, its creaminess channeled along a chalk line of acidity. Clean and almost blunt in its youthful power, this wine has a terrific future ahead.”
93/100
Josh Raynolds
“(100% estate-grown fruit; 9 g/l dosage): Light, bright gold. Vibrant, mineral-driven lemon and underripe pear on the nose, along with suggestions of honeysuckle, iodine, tarragon and toasted brioche. Gently leesy and creamy on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a suave touch of chamomile. Finishes bright and stony, with repeating floral and mineral notes.”
93/100
Alison Napjus
“Firm and focused by ample acidity, this is fleshed out by the refined and creamy mousse and flavors of pineapple, blackberry, tangerine, grated coconut and creamy almond. Well-knit and elegant overall. Drink now through 2028.”
93+/100
Antonio Galloni
“Roederer's 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs is a powerhouse. There is a level of richness and overall intensity that almost suggests the presence of red grapes. Almonds, brioche, cooked apples and green pears meld together in an unusually deep, pliant Blanc de Blancs. All of that intensity carries through to a decidedly phenolic, layered finish supported by veins of insistent salinity. Weightless, tense and pulsating from start to finish, the Blanc de Blancs is a real head-turner in 2008. 2015 - 2026.”
95/100
Stephan Reinhardt
“The 2008 Blanc de Blancs offers a very subtle and substantial, multi-layered bouquet of wet chalk, hazelnuts, stewed apples, lemons, toast, jasmine. Full-bodied and vibrant, this is a highly elegant, very mineral, pure, fresh, firm, tense and persistent Champagne of great complexity. It is still very young but has a great aging potential.”
