Champagne Louis Roederer Overview
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.

The 2009 harvest experienced a cold winter that led to a late bud break but was followed by a spring of warm yet wet conditions; the rainfall was irregular, causing the buds to develop well. Throughout the summer leading up to the harvest, the Champagne region experienced continual hot and dry spells. August provided the perfect conditions for the grapes and this created a highly mature fruit. Harvest for the Chardonnays began on 10th September. The Blanc de Blancs has matured on the lees for 5 years and left to rest for 6 months after disgorging.

A golden yellow full of persistent fine bubbles, on the nose candied citrus fruit and subtle hazelnut aromas. On the palate, a lively fruitiness added to brioche and apples notes. Blanc de Blancs 2009 will age well.

“Seductive, super creamy vanilla-laden nose with pristine toasty character over opulent white fruits, gunpowder and candy tones. So far only moderate ageing aromas but wonderful, tart lemony and sherbetty nature. Also interesting herbaceous notes, juniper turning into rosemary and mint in the glass. Still tight and restrained on the energetically sweet and sour palate. Long, pure and refined.”

“This is a beautiful wine, so crisp, taut and refreshing. It brings out the fragrance and freshness of the chalk vineyards of the Côte de Blancs, fruity with apples and citrus. Still young although already balanced, the wine will age for several years and will be ready to drink from 2018.”

“The 2009 Blanc de Blancs Vintage is mainly from Avize (80%), but chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon is aiming for 100% due to the forward pushed ripeness of Chardonnay. The wine offers a deep, intense and very elegant nose of ripe, but nobly discreet Chardonnay on chalk flavors, which are repeated on the palate. Think of white fruits, flowers and blossoms, hazelnuts, brioche and almonds - and you are almost there. The 2009 offers a mouthful of round, rich and very elegant, precisely defined Chardonnay that shows a lovely freshness and purity in the finish. The wine is silky, vinous and very long, and reveals an endless elegance. No malolactic fermentation, but a remarkably chiseled acidity.”
