The Story

From 1830 onwards, the House of Louis Roederer acquired extensive knowledge of the terroirs and plot-by-plot vinification, and mastered the effervescence. In the heart of the Côte des Blancs, where the Chardonnay grapes attain optimal maturity on the calcareous soils, Louis Roederer has selected two exceptional grands crus: Mesnil-sur-Oger and Avize, whose unique characteristics and complementarity enable the House to produce taut, highly aromatic wines that have finesse.

100% Chardonnay, the Blanc de Blancs Vintage cuvée is generally matured on lees for five years and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity.

In the mouth, the attack is typically Chardonnay—it is smooth and delicate, and markedly sweet. Slightly sweetened floral notes and white fruit and dried fruit notes are combined with the almost chalky minerality of the Côte des Blancs. The texture has notes of sugared almond, a sensation that is strengthened by a soft effervescence that envelops the mouth. This is followed by an impression of finesse, elegance, and freshness, strengthened by suggestions of fresh mint and basil.

Wine Information

A fresh and contrasting year marked by a particularly cold winter with heavy frosts, followed by a dry and cool spring and early summer. A shocking climatic turnaround in August and September with two very wet and humid months which complicated ripening at the end of the season. Only a few south-facing plots and vines with very few grapes achieved satisfactory ripening. 2010 is a contrasting vintage, between the fragility of the Pinot, sorted very carefully, and the triumph of some great Chardonnays on the Côte des Blancs!

 

100% Chardonnay, 20% of the wine vinified in oak casks, no malolactic fermentation.

The Blanc de Blancs 2010 cuvée has been drawn off at low pressure to ensure a fuller, richer flow of bubbles. The wine is aged for 5 years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is 9 g/l.

Written Notes

A yellow-gold colour with subtle green tints.Subtle and smooth effervescence.

An intense bouquet of golden plum and tangy mango, candied lemon, flowers (mimosa) and buttery pastries. A light aeration reveals hints of sugared almonds (ground almonds), white chocolate with a slight vanilla edge and baked apples.

The expectation is for a substantial and voluminous follow-up - but instead the initial intensity subsides revealing the precision, purity and chalky, mineral freshness of the grand Avize Chardonnays.

Good looking normal size bottle. Colour is green-yellow and light. On the nose it is open, intense, complex, fresh, tempting and pure. The taste is fresh, harmonious, elegant, and dry, and high in acidity, with perfectly balanced structure and youthful. On the palate it is layered and has white fruits, mineral and bread flavours. The finish is long, lingering, pure and vibrant.
