Tasting Note: A perfect balance between Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier has a well structured fruitiness, delicate aromas of peach and apricot lifted by vibrant notes of grapefruits and gooseberries. On the palate the wine seduces with a lovely combination of intense fruits. The finish is long and vibrant.

LOUIS ROEDERER BLANC DE BLANCS 2011

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 2011 vintage was a continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. The harvest was incomparable in terms of quality and produced consistent, fresh and crunchy grapes.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru | Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 5 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l
Drink: Now to 2026

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