Louis Roederer

The House Louis Roederer is one of the names that comes up when we talk about the great houses of Champagne, being still one of the Rares to remain family owned for more than two centuries now. 

Reigning over a vineyard of 240 hectares classified on sumptuous terroirs in Premiers Crus and Grands Crus, the House Louis Roederer has never ceased to offer generous Champagnes that embellish all occasions.

The House of Roederer: a family heritage

It was in 1833 that Louis Roederer inherited his uncle's house: the house of Champagne Dubois Père et Fils in Reims, which he had founded in 1776. From then on, he chose to take the habits and customs of the region in hand and showed great concern for controlling all the stages of production of his Champagne. At the time, marketing was the business of the wine merchants, while the vineyard belonged entirely to the winegrowers.

Description Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé 2008.

Cristal Rosé 2008 has been aged for 8 years in bottle and also benefits from a minimum of 8 months rest after disgorgement to perfect its maturity. The dosage is 8 g/l.

To elaborate its rosé champagnes, Louis Roederer has developed over the years a way that is unique in Champagne. Called "infusion" in the House, it allows to extract the juicy and ripe side of the Pinots Noirs while preserving a great freshness. Thus, some Chardonnay juices are poured into a Pinot Noir maceration, to ferment together and integrate perfectly.

Bright pink color with some salmon reflections. Soft and regular effervescence that starts all over the glass and gives an almost creamy appearance. Delicate, subtle bouquet where, at first nose, the fine scents of flower petals and dried fruits mingle. Then come the small acidic red fruits of currant and wild strawberry which characterize our old vines of Pinots Noirs d'Ay.
