Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.

Winery LOUIS ROEDERER

Founded in 1776 Louis Roederer is a family owned Grande Marques Champagne house based in Reims, widely recognized as one of Champagne’s best houses. In 1876 Louis Roederer II crafted an exclusive prestige Champagne for the Tsar named ‘Cristal’, and for many years the house was the official supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia. The house owns 240 ha of vineyards throughout the region comprised of 410 separate parcels. Fruit is also sourced from a number of contract growers. The house of Louis Roederer makes several non-vintage cuvées including the extra dry Brut Premier, Grand Vin Sec and the Demi-sec Carte Blanche. The vintage cuvées include the Brut Vintage, Rosé Vintage and vintage Blanc de Blancs. The prestige cuvée Cristal, approximately an equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot noir, is also available as a rosé.
