Winemaker Notes

The wine is a bright yellow-gold with a deep and rich color due to a dominating proportion of Pinot Noir. The nose is intense with ripe and stewed fruits reminiscent of baked and caramelized apples. There is a hint of soft floral and honeyed aromas with a touch of lightly toasted almonds. The palate is generous, sophisticated and silky with flavors of fresh fruit complemented by a subtle vinosity. The richness and structure of the 1996 vintage are beautifully balanced by good acidity producing a wine with character, finesse and elegance.

Critical Acclaim

JS 98
James Suckling

This has oyster-shell, burnt-lemon, smoked-almond, dried-citrus, sea-urchin and fig notes. Interesting cedar undertones, too. Sharp acidity, with slightly reductive smoky, oyster-shell and flinty character. Very powerful and structured. Still tight.

Uncompromising Quality
Champagne Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 in Reims, France and is one of the rare family owned companies, which is still managed by the Roederer family. In 1833, Louis Roederer inherited the company from his uncle and renamed the company under his namesake. Under his leadership, the company rapidly grew while remaining true to their philosophy of uncompromising quality. Today, the company is under the helm of Jean-Claude Rouzaud and his son Frédéric who continue to place quality before quantity.

First-Rate Vineyards
Champagne Louis Roederer is one of the only French champagne producers to own nearly 75 percent of the grapes in the most desirable vineyards in the Champagne. The property is located on 450 acres in the finest villages of Montagne de Reims, Côtes des Blancs, and Valleé de la Marne. Each region is selected to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with the elegance needed for perfectly balanced champagne. The Louis Roederer vineyards rate an average 98 percent based on France’s statutory 100-point classification scale.

The reserve wine is then tasted and graded by a team of Roederer specialists. They choose as many as 40 different wines from several lots for the blend. For the final touch, the wine is then added in order to enhance the cuvee and guarantee consistency while retaining the champagne's characteristics.
