Producer Note
When Louis Roederer inherited the Champagne House in 1833 he 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. Louis Roederer acquired
some of Champagne's grand cru vineyards as he believed all great wine depends
on the quality of the soil and a passion for tradition. The Louis Roederer House
remains an independent, family-owned company and is now managed by the
seventh generation of the lineage. The House of Louis Roederer's annual exports total
three million bottles around the world.


Vineyard
Roederer owns 200 hectares from the finest villages of Ay, Verzenay, Vervy, Avize and
Cramant where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official classification
scale for the 'crus'. The Champagne House source two thirds of their grape
requirements from their own vineyards. A Green Harvest takes place in July, the
vintage is harvested by hand during mid September. Roederer are unusual amongst
the great Champagne Houses as they have a considerable commitment to organic
and biodynamic viticulture, comprising 22% of their holdings: 40 hectares are
biodynamic and 15 hecatares are organic.


Winemaking
Only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Roederer's 10 most celebrated Crus are used
in the production of this legendary cuvée. The grapes from 410 parcels are pressed
on site and the resulting juices are preserved according to the parcel of origin. A
precise selection process and plot by plot vinification ensures the orgins of the
grapes. The contents of the 450 small stainless steel tanks are tasted daily and are
classified into families of aromas, flavours and characteristics. This tasting and
reclassification is ongoing as the wines gradually mature and develop their own
characteristics.
