The Story

Fascinated by the aromatic diversity of Pinot noir in Champagne, Louis Roederer uses the structure and power of the Pinot noir grapes from the Montagne de Reims to create its Cuvée Vintage. Exposed to the north-east, the grapes mature more slowly. The character of this great wine intensifies and becomes more refined through ageing in wood and time.

Composed of around 70% Pinot noir and 30% Chardonnay, 30% of which is wine matured in oak tuns, the Vintage cuvée is generally matured on lees for 4 years and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity.

The palate is characteristic of Louis Roederer’s vintages: the attack is ample and dense; a rich and winey fullness is refined by the sweetness, acidity and tight blend of the Pinot noir grapes of Verzenay. The ensemble is perfectly integrated into a subtle texture. Tasting reveals sparkling suggestions of candied fruits, almond paste, toast, white chocolate, and carame

Written Notes

There were four Champagnes to flight number one, and they were all extra special. The 1929 Louis Roederer (regular) proved once again how good these old cuvees can be. They are some of the best kept secrets in fine and rare Champagne. This ’29 was a spectacular bottle. ‘Beautiful, look at that color’ came from the crowd. It was buttery but in a lightly buttered way. This was a smooth, long and ‘delicate’ Champagne that was also hailed as great and ‘exceptional.’ It was flat out great and such a thrill to have a perfectly kept 87 year old bottle of Champagne (97).

"The 1929 Louis Roederer was ‘unreal great.’ I wish I could tell you more about it, but the pen had officially fallen off the page. I do remember that it was a continuance in style of the 1949, though less exotic and more mellow, definitely close to divine (96M)."
