Champagne Louis Roederer Overview
+
In the heart of the Côte des Blancs, where Chardonnay expresses itself with such incredible finesse on the famous limestone soils, Louis Roederer selected three outstanding Grand Crus for their Blanc de Blancs cuvée. These plots in Avize, Cramant and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger have distinct characteristics that allow for the production of wines expressing both balanced harmony and rich aromas. This pure-Chardonnay champagne quickly became the favourite wine of the Roederer family for major events and is 100% estate-bottled from the grapes of their historic vineyards. Drawn at low pressure for a fuller flow of bubbles, 10% of the wines have been aged in wood casks and the final blend is matured for an average of five years in the cellars and left to rest for six months after disgorgement.

Weather: The 2010 harvest was marked by a very cold winter with heavy frost patches. Weather improved in the spring and early summer months with cool and consistent temperatures. However, August and September experienced awful weather with plenty of storms and humid conditions complicating the ripening process. The Pinot Noir became a fragile harvest, but the Chardonnays of the Côte des Blancs excelled.

“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.”
