Louis Roederer, a wonderful family-owned Champagne house founded in 1776, has a tremendous reputation for quality.The Louis Roederer House has remained an independent, family-owned company and is now managed by Frédéric Rouzaud, who represents the seventh generation of the lineage. 80% of the firm's needs are supplied by their own, magnificent, 444 acres of vineyard holdings.
Louis Roederer's Pinot Noir based non-vintage Brut Premier is powerful and richly-honeyed and is far superior to most other producers` vintage Champagnes.
In 1876 Louis Roederer created the now famous Cristal, at the request of Alexander II. This once intensely sweet wine is now one of the most luscious, deeply flavoured champagnes available, with the '88, '89 and '90 among the greatest Cristals ever released.

This wine is without doubt one of the very top non-vintage Champagnes. Its elegant complexities come from the barrel-ageing of a high proportion of the blend, together with at least four years' maturation in bottle before disgorging.
The quintessence of Louis Roederer’s House style, Brut Premier offers all the quality and glamour of the House as well as excellent value. A structured, elegant wine, it is deliciously creamy with almond and toast characteristics alongside the complexity and roundness that are the hallmarks of this illustrious House.

Roederer is fortunate (to put it mildly) in owning over 215 hectares of vineyards in this small but prestigious appellation and is one of the few Grandes Marques that can lay claim to make all of its own vintage Champagne from its own vines.The results are astonishing...especially in 2004, a rare beast in that the vintage combined quality and quantity…
60% of the wine is made up of Pinot Noir, sourced largely from a 15 hectare plot in the famous village of Verzenay, and the balance of Chardonnay from some of the great villages of the Côtes des Blancs. The wine is partially oak fermented and aged on its lees for four years; the dosage is 10 g/l. The wine has a wonderfully complex nose of acacia and stone fruits, with hints of spice and sweet baked apples; then the palate marries ripe oak-fermented fruit with a characteristic creamy opulence, and a poised finely-sculpted finish.
