Louis Roederer remains one of the last 100% independent, family-owned Champagne Houses, presided over by seventh generation Frédéric Rouzaud. Under the stewardship of Chef du Cave, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon these past two decades, Louis Roederer has become the largest Biodynamic Domaine in Champagne.

A "weather waltz", and one with clear, sharp contrasts! The spring was sunny and dry and ended with a heatwave in
June; summer was autumnal, cool, and rainy; September was hot, sunny, and very dry… weather we would usually
associate with the month of August. The ‘key’ to the vintage lay in the soils as well as in the work carried out
by the winegrowers. The good drainage properties of the chalk on the lower-middle part of the hillside helped us greatly by allowing the excess water from the summer to drain away which limited any excess vigour in the vines.
These factors were complemented by our increasingly eco-friendly viticultural practices which allow us to take
our quest for grapes of perfect balance and maturity even further

60% pinot noir, 40% chardonnay. 32% vinified in oak.

Wine Spectator

This vivid Champagne shows up-front and linear definition, thanks to rapierlike acidity, with finely meshed flavours of ripe black cherry and mandarin orange fruit, raw almond, anise, and cardamom spice as well as a touch of honeycomb, which all unfurl and expand on the fine, creamy palate. Sleek acidity continues through to the finish, with additional racy character provided by a streak of minerally saline and chalk, which gains momentum through the midpalate and rings out on the well-cut, lasting finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2040.

Tasting Profile

Dense, juicy, concentrated, and long on the mid-palate, thanks to the spicy and sappy structure resulting from partial aging in large oak vats (foudres). The finish builds to a crescendo, revealing a rich grainy, and a velvety texture that is wrapped in a long, saline, and superbly elegant finish.
Fruity palate with a silky texture, complemented by soft bubbles that are perfectly integrated and deliciously elegant. The purity and perfection of the ripe yellow fruit melt into the intense chalky freshness, typical of Cristal, which is both powdery and saline.
