Bright golden hue flecked with green. Slow, gentle and steady bubbles. Very pure, delicate and ethereal bouquet. Delicate hints of flowers (honeysuckle, jasmine), ripe, fine and almost roasted citrus fruit (citron).
These are followed by iodized, sea-breeze aromas, combined with the warm, sweet notes of freshly-baked pastries. After a fresh, energetic entry to the palate, the wine is dense, delicately zesty and invigorating. A predominantly saline character overlays flavours of citrus fruit (orange), harvest (almond, wheat) and Madagascan vanilla.
The soft, melting bubbles give way to a limestone freshness, revealing an end-palate that seems light and powdery at first, but which surprises us with a real acceleration on the finish created by its elegant tannins and roasted spices.
From 1830 onwards, the House of Louis Roederer acquired extensive knowledge of the Champagne terroirs, began experimenting with plot-by-plot vinification, and mastered the art of delicate effervescence. It is in the heart of the famous Côte des Blancs, specifically in the Grand Cru estate vineyards of Avize, where Louis Roederer sources its Chardonnay grapes. These grapes attain optimal maturity on the calcareous soils, enabling the House to produce taut, highly aromatic wines with ethereal finesse.
Founded in 1776, and property of the same family since 1819, Champagne Louis Roederer is today one of the last major champagne houses to be an independent family affair. The annual production of its wines (Brut Premier, Carte Blanche, Brut Vintage, Rosé Vintage, Blanc de Blancs, Cristal, Cristal Rosé) represents just over three million bottles, distributed to 100 countries worldwide.
Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Vintage is a pure, tight, fine, brilliant wine. A length, a concentration that make it a simply delicious Champagne. 2015 Vintage comes from "La Côte" plot on the Grand Cru terroir of Avize.
