Louis Roederer Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Blanc de Blancs is made in very small quantities from a selection of grands crus from the Louis Roederer vineyard on the Côte des Blancs (Avize, le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Chouilly). The wine is left to mature for an average period of four years and then remains for a further six months in the cellar after disgorgement to ensure perfect maturity. The appearance is yellow with light green-gold highlights. Fine mouse with regular, persistent bubbles. It has a clean and fragrant nose of fresh, vigorous, subtle aromas: white flower (Acacia), fruit (citrus, apple), fresh almonds, light spices, and a wisp of caramel, hinting that some of the wines composing the blend of this Blanc de Blancs have been fermented in wood. In the mouth it has a velvety attack, with rich, smooth texture, typical of Louis Roederer. Enhanced by soft effervescence, this great wine reveals a perfectly balanced structure, both creamy and ethereal. It almost tickles the palate with clean, fine and precise texture, strengthened on the finish by the light bitter taste of fresh almonds, and the softness of ripe, lightly caramelised apples. This Blanc de Blancs combines finesse and vinosity: it expresses with subtlety and refinement all the qualities of freshness, roundness and precision, characteristic of the best Chardonnays in Champagne. Ideal as an aperitif when it is the very essence of freshness, finesse and elegance, Blanc de Blancs is also the perfect accompaniment to seafood, fish and goat's cheese.

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.

Der „Blanc de Blancs“ ist ein sehr körperreicher Jahrgangs-Champagner und eignet sich als reicher, kräftiger und fruchtiger Begleiter. Sein Bukett (mit Zitrus- und Melonen-Noten) ist ein Gedicht und passt zu fast jedem Gericht.
