Overview

Tasting Note:
This Blanc de Blancs 2009, a blend of Grands Crus from Avize, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Cramant of a ripe, sunny year, is a fine example of a Chardonnay Champagne, combining fruity intensity and finesse of flavour. With a persistent, velvety stream of fine bubbles, the bouquet offers candied citrus peel, pear and peach fruits, cocoa bean and finely ground hazelnuts. Sweet density and maturity are dominant, combined with slightly tart nuances, then followed by toasted and brioche variations. The lively, streamlined palate is characterised by its purity, as though biting into the flesh of a ripe, sun-kissed fruit. The precision and finesse of chalk gives a powdery, invigorating, lively impression on the tongue, which lengthens the wine. The finish is long and fresh.

In 1833, Louis Roederer inherited the Champagne company founded in 1776 by his uncle. He immediately gave it his own name and set about spreading its reputation throughout all Europe. He concentrated his efforts on Russia, and it was not long before the Tsar himself was drinking Monsieur Roederer's Champagne. In fact, it became such a favourite of Tsar Alexander II that he asked Roederer to create his own personal Cuvee from their finest wines and Cristal was born. Using the best grapes from the best Crus, from over 500 acres, they are fermented separately in small, steel vats with the reserve wines stored in barrels. This gives Roederer Champagne their distinctive style: rich, round, toasted and highly complex. Louis Roederer is the sole Champagne House to have such an extensive reserve wine cellar. This unique luxury is a necessity in Roederer's pursuit of quality.
