The Story

When he inherited the Champagne House in 1833, the aesthete and entrepreneur Louis Roederer took a visionary approach to enriching his vines, aiming to master every stage of the wine’s creation. He forged the wine’s unique style, character, and taste. In the mid-nineteenth century, Louis Roederer acquired some of Champagne’s grand cru vineyards—an approach that contrasted sharply with contemporary practices..
 
While other Houses bought their grapes, Louis Roederer nurtured his vineyards, familiarized himself with the specific characteristics of each parcel, and methodically acquired the finest land. Louis Roederer’s guiding principle was that all great wine depends on the quality of the soil, a passion for tradition, and an astute vision of the future; the fame and reputation of the House of Louis Roederer was firmly established.

M+Q Notes

The Blanc de Blancs vintage is only produced in small quantities because it is created exclusively from a selection of the very finest crus from the Louis Roederer vineyard in the Cote des Blancs. To preserve its delicacy and freshness, this exquisite champagne undergoes no malolactic fermentation and the pressure inside the bottle is reduced to four atmospheres, instead of the usual six. Golden yellow colour with bright green highlights. Intensely fruity nose with lush aromas of ripe fruits (melon, mango) and crisper scents of apple and orange overlaid by the mineral tones typical of Chardonnay. Full-bodied, creamy palate, with light but mouthfilling substance still dominated by those pure smoky, mineral tones of young Chardonnay. Crisp, long, sappy finish.
