Champagne Louis Roederer was established in 1776 and remains under the ownership of the Rouzaud family to this day. With over 240 hectares of vineyards located exclusively in Grands and Premiers Crus villages, Champagne Louis Roederer is self-sufficient for approximately 70% of their non vintage production and 100% of their vintage champagnes.
‘From the outset, the texture is full and generous and, in a fairly unexpected way, integrates characteristics of maturity associated with fruitier and more refreshing notes. The wine has a fresh festive finesse, and in the mouth, the wine has structure, richness and length. It is a full, complex wine that is both modern and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.’
A blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier. 15% oak aged reserve wines add complexity to the blend and the wine is aged for three years in the cellar to achieve optimum maturity.
Delicious as an aperitif or served with canapés or shellfish dishes.
