Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Gift Box - Champagne

Vintage: 2010 Region: France
Type: Champagne/Sparkling
Winery: Louis Roederer
Tasting Notes:

"Louis Roederer’s Blanc de Blancs is a pure, taut, ï¬ï¿½ne, and bright wine. Its contrasting tones range from an intense, chiselled acidity to the supple lightness of notes of fresh hazelnuts, almonds, and white flowers with accents of acacia, broom, and honeysuckle." - Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master.

In the mouth, the attack is typically Chardonnay—it is smooth and delicate, and markedly sweet. Slightly sweetened floral notes and white fruit and dried fruit notes are combined with the almost chalky minerality of the Côte des Blancs. The texture has notes of sugared almond, a sensation that is strengthened by a soft effervescence that envelops the mouth. This is followed by an impression of finesse, elegance, and freshness, strengthened by suggestions of fresh mint and basil.

100% Chardonnay, the Blanc de Blancs cuvée is aged for five years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity. The dosage varies from 8 to 10 g/l depending on the vintage.

A perfect aperitif and goes well with cheese, smoked salmon, caviar, shellfish and seafood with light sauces. The 2008 will pair well with mushroom and light chicken dishes.

Champagne Louis Roederer, founded in 1776, remains one of the very rare family Champagne businesses. For two centuries, six succeeding generations have been inspired by the same concern for quality. Frederic Rouzaud took up the reins in early 2006 from his father Jean-Claude Rouzaud who remains Chairman of the Board. Jean-Claude, grandson of Madame Camille Olry-Roederer and himself a trained Oenologist had led the company for 38 years, and is referred to as the 'Sage' of Champagne (the wise man of Champagne).

Frederic has spent the past 10 years working with his father in all areas of production and business and will bring his great business acumen and academic background to the company. Louis Roederer is unique in Champagne owning two-thirds of the vineyards for their total production covering the Pinot Noir sub regions of "Montagne de Reims" and "Vallee de la Marne" with Chardonnay from the "Cotes des Blanc". By 1995, recent acquisitions had increased Louis Roederer's holding from 180 hectares to almost 190 hectares, ranking 97.5% on the official classification scale.
