96/100 Parker

When to drink this wine? 2024 - 2036

Tasted in 2023 by J.S - "Enveloping nose of fresh wheat and white tree fruit with fresh lemon zest and a touch of gunflint. The balance between lees-aged creaminess and elegant, mineral acidity is stunning. The very long finish is pure, chalky and silky. Made from four parcels in the Grand Cru village of Avize. Finished at just 4.5 atmospheres of pressure, deliberately lower than the standard six. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. To drink or to keep."

 

THE SUBLIMATION OF A GRAPE VARIETY

As early as 1830, the House of Louis Roederer acquired a great knowledge of the terroirs, practiced separate vinification and mastered effervescence. In the heart of the Côte des Blancs, where Chardonnay flourishes fully on limestone soils, Louis Roederer selects two exceptional Grands Crus, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Avize, whose typicity and complementarity enable the production of intense wines expressing finesse and aromatic richness.

  

A CHARDONNAY IDENTITY

100% Chardonnay - The Blanc de Blancs Vintage cuvée is aged on average 5 years on the lees and also benefits from a minimum of 6 months rest after disgorging in order to perfect its maturity.

  

A STRADIVARIUS WINE

The attack on the palate is typical of Chardonnay: smooth and slender on the palate. Slightly honeyed floral notes, white fruits, dried fruits, are associated with the almost chalky minerality of the Côte des Blancs. The texture is reminiscent of sugared almonds, a sensation reinforced by a soft and enveloping effervescence. The mouth continues on the finesse, elegance and freshness, reinforced by some evocations of fresh mint and basil.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
