Louis Roederer Carte Blanche NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Roederer own 200 hectares (500 acres) from the three main growing zones in Champagne. The Cote des Blancs: 75ha of Chardonnay grapes, which provide an elegant, smooth freshness. The Montagne de Reims: 65ha of Pinot Noir grapes, which give, power and structure. The Vallee de la Marne: 60ha of Pinot Noir grapes which give fruitiness and roundness. These vineyards are located in the finest villages, such as Ay, Verzenay, Vervy, Avize and Cramant where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official classification scale for the 'crus'. Roederer source two thirds of their grape needs from their own vineyards, which is the largest proportion of any champagne house and enables them to have strict control over their raw materials. For example Roederer 'green harvest’ in July to reduce the amount of grapes and thus improve quality. The color is pale golden. The inclusion of oak-aged reserve wines from four to 10 years is more apparent than in the “Brut” quality champagnes. The reserve wines give complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes.

The distinctive qualities of each parcel are the result of great respect for nature. Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity.   The harvest from each parcel is pressed and vinified separately. Over the months, the wine is tasted and analysed by the oenologists; this provides them with an extensive aromatic palette that gives them a rich choice and enables them to develop blends under the watchful eye of the Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. This quest for authenticity matches Philippe Starck’s desire to collaborate on the development of a unique, finely tuned, and authentic cuvée. They decided to draw inspiration from river wines to create a straightforward, medium-dry, terroir-based champagne. Consequently, every measure was taken on the south-facing parcels of Pinot noir to nurture grapes that would attain great maturity, in order to obtain an excellent fruit that would require very minor corrective measures.
