    Grapes
    40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier

    Viticulture
    Roederer own over 214 hectares of vineyards from the three main growing zones in Champagne.

    The vineyards are located in the finest villages, such as Ay, Verzenay, Vervy, Avize and Cramant where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official classification scale for the 'crus'.

    Roederer source two thirds of their grape needs from their own vineyards, which is the largest proportion of any champagne house and enables them to have strict control over their raw materials. For example Roederer 'green harvest in July to reduce the amount of grapes and thus improve quality.

    The harvest takes place usually mid September and takes around 15 days. 600 people work in the Louis Roederer vineyards, harvesting the grapes by hand. The grapes are then transported quickly and efficiently to one of Louis Roederer's three pressing centres, which are in the heart of its vineyards.

    Wine Making
    During the blending 10% of reserve wines is added, this give Carte Blanche its extra dimension. Reserve wines are made up of the best wines from at least 3 former vintages, which are set aside to age in large oak casks in the Reserve Wine Cellar.

    After blending and the addition of the liqueur de tirage (this starts off the secondary fermentation, which creates the sparkle in champagne) the wines are left to mature for at least four years. This is in excess of the legal minimum.

    The final stages involve disgorging the wine. This is where the sediment formed by the secondary fermentation is removed to give a clear liquid. At this stage the liqueur de dosage is added. These liqueur wines are the result of a meticulous selection of wines that have been aged for six to ten years in the famous oak casks. They are added to compensate for the natural acidity of the champagne and to determine the style of the champagne. Before its addition champagne is considered extra brut and the more liqueur that is added, the sweeter the champagne will be.

    Tasting Notes
    The color is pale golden. The inclusion of oak-aged reserve wines from four to 10 years is more apparent than in the Brut quality champagnes. The reserve wines give complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes.

  • Roederer Brut Rose 2007 Champagne 12% 75cl
    In the development of its rose champagnes, Louis Roederer still uses the skin contact method leaving the black grapes to macerate in the wine press for several hours to extract the pigmenting substances from the must. To confer colour and style, Louis Roederer uses Pinot Noirs from old Cumires vines which produce very ripe grapes of exceptional aromatic depth. The ros wine is then usually left to age for a period of four years, plus an additional six months after disgorgement to ensure perfect maturity.

    Dosage: 11 to 12 grams per litre. The 'liqueur de dosage' is prepared with the greatest of care from a selected blend of 8 to 10 of the very best crus from the Louis Roederer vineyard and then left to age in oak casks.

    Tasting Notes
    Colour: Pink tones with orange, almost ochre highlights. A stream of lively, delicate bubbles.

    Nose: Rich, intense, distinctly red-fruit nose (strawberries, cherries) with sweet floral notes (white flowers) and almost a whiff of stewed fruit. The bouquet is neat, honest and precise.

    Palate: Savoury at first, with a soft, almost caressing texture that gives an impression of great finesse and precision. The mouthfeel is fabulously light, fresh and fruity the complete antithesis of the ripe, warm, dry conditions that characterized this vintage. The wine opens up within seconds to reveal all of its generous volume and substance. Flesh and freshness combine to produce a vinosity that lingers eternally on the finish. An irresistibly airy Champagne.

    Food Matching

  • Cristal Rose 2006 Louis Roederer 12% 75cl
    In 1974, nearly 200 years after the creation of the Maison Louis Roederer and 100 years after the creation of Cristal, Jean-Claude Rouzaud decided to create Cristal Ros. To do this end, he selected old vine pinot noir grapes, according to specific characteristics, located on the finest of the A vineyards. Exceptionally, these vines lie on a limestone block with clay and limestone soil and in the best years, the vines achieve extraordinarily mature fruit with a crystalline purity of acidity corresponding perfectly to the Cristal style. Today these vines are organically grown.

    Grapes
    60% Pinot Noir / 40% Chardonnay

    Harvest Report
    An extraordinary year that brought together all the factors that make for a great Champagne year: constantly warm temperatures without excessive heat or sun preceded by a markedly mild winter; a reduction in rainfall (about 20%) during the growth cycle; cool nights and a cold dry north-easterly wind from August to September. These exceptionally favourable conditions combined meant that the grapes matured perfectly and their fl avours were nicely concentrated. Harvesting started 12 September for the chardonnays with an average sugar concentration superior to 11% natural alcohol.

    Wine Making
    20% of the wines vinifi ed in oak barrels with weekly batonnage. No malolactic fermentation. To create Ros champagnes, Louis Roederer still uses the saigne method after cold maceration that can last 5 to 8 days in the liquid phase. Cristal Ros is matured 6 years in the cellar and rests for 8 months after disgorgement to perfect its maturity. Dosage of between 8 and 10 g/l is adapted to each vintage.

    Tasting Notes
    A salmon pink hue, with radiant highlights and incredible youth. A regular, refined and lively effervescence. An intense, rich, bewitching bouquet of red fruit and citrus zest associated with more complex notes redolent of cedar and spring sap. The aromas evolve gently in the glass evolving from dried fruits, fresh almonds and frangipane, to notes of Tarte Tatin, oven-baked apples and caramel. In tastings, the wine is soft and silky on the palate with a marvelous harmony of flavour and concentration of fruit. The attack is fruity and crisp. Finesse and fruit combine to create a full palate that melts in the mouth, giving way to candied citrus and dried fruits. The exceptional characteristics of the 2002 vintage have been literally captured in this generous epicurean Cristal Ros 2002, which reveals a perfect equilibrium between concentration and finesse, richness and freshness, intensity and refinement. - Jean-Baptiste Lcaillon

  • Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne 12.5% 37.5cl
    Grapes
    40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier.

    Viticulture
    Roederer own 200 hectares (500 acres) from the three main growing zones in Champagne.

    The Cote des Blancs: 75ha of Chardonnay grapes, which provide an elegant, smooth freshness.
    The Montagne de Reims: 65ha of Pinot Noir grapes, which give, power and structure.
    The Vallee de la Marne: 60ha of Pinot Noir grapes which give fruitiness and roundness.

    These vineyards are located in the finest villages, such as Ay, Verzenay, Vervy, Avize and Cramant where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official classification scale for the 'crus'.

    Roederer source two thirds of their grape needs from their own vineyards, which is the largest proportion of any champagne house and enables them to have strict control over their raw materials. For example Roederer 'green harvest in July to reduce the amount of grapes and thus improve quality.

    The harvest takes place usually mid September and takes around 15 days. 600 people work in the Louis Roederer vineyards, harvesting the grapes by hand. The grapes are then transported quickly and efficiently to one of Louis Roederer's three pressing centres, which are in the heart of its vineyards.

    Wine Making
    The blend of grapes used is: 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier. Included in the blend is 10% of reserve wines, which give Brut Premier its extra dimension. Reserve wines are made up of the best wines from at least 3 former vintages, which are set aside to age in large oak casks in the Reserve Wine Cellar. The reserve wine cellar represents a considerable investment for the company: the value of the 700,000 litres of Reserve Wines; the initial cost and upkeep of the 150 casks originating in the forests of Chateauroux in central France; the air conditioning, filtration, and humidification of the Reserve Wine Cellar. Louis Roederer is the sole Champagne House to have such an extensive reserve cellar.

    After blending and the addition of the liqueur de tirage (this starts off the secondary fermentation, which creates the sparkle in champagne) the wines are left to mature for at least four years. This is in excess of the legal minimum. The final stages involve disgorging the wine. This is where the sediment formed by the secondary fermentation is removed to give a clear liquid. At this stage the liqueur de dosage is added. These liqueur wines are the result of a meticulous selection of wines that have been aged for six to ten years in the famous oak casks. They are added to compensate for the natural acidity of the champagne and to determine the style of the champagne. Before its addition champagne is considered extra brut and the more liqueur that is added, the sweeter the champagne will be.

    Tasting Notes
    Brut Premier is the embodiment of Louis Roederer style, combining all the fruitiness and freshness of youth with the vinosity of a fully mature wine. This is a structured and elegantly mature wine, with a lively attack and a smooth palate. Fine bubbles and a nose of fresh fruit and hawthorn. Smooth, complex palate mingling flavours of white-fleshed fruit (apple and pear) with red berries (blackberries, raspberries, cherries) and notes of toast and almonds. A pleasurable wine, deliciously smooth and mature.

  • Moet & Chandon Brut Rose
    Lively and generous, Rose Imperial distinguishes itself by a radiant colour; an intense fruitiness and flamboyance on the palate. That instantly seduce and delight.

    The aromas are intense and irresistible, a lively bouquet of fresh red summer berries with floral nuances and a light peppery touch.

    The palate is flamboyant and combines intensity and roundness: fleshy and juicy at first, then firm with a subtle herbal finish.

    Rose Imperial is the most extrovert and seductive expression of the Moet & Chandon style.

    "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."
