Louis Roederer

Champagne, champagne France

Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 and is still run by the same family, with Frédéric Rouzaud now at the helm. In order to control production as a grower-merchant, in 2012 the Rouzaud family purchased Champagne Leclerc Briant. This not only increased their total ownership to 240 hectares of vineyards (situated in some of Champagne's best sites), but means that Louis Roederer is now the biggest biodynamic producer in Champagne. They currently have 82 hectares of biodynamic and organically farmed land.

Louis Roederer is unique among the Grandes Marques because its vineyards supply two thirds of their production, rather than buying in the majority of their grapes. The Louis Roederer Brut Premier is a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier, sourced from 40 different plots. Reserve wines from six years of harvests go into the NV blend, 10% of which are matured in oak casks. The Champagne spends three years on its lees in the cellar and a further six months in bottle, post-disgorgement, prior to release. The Brut Vintage, a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay is aged for even longer, with a minimum of four years on lees and six months in bottle post-disgorgement.
