In a cut, Roederer moves in a golden atmosphere, laden with little material. First come the youthful scents of lemons and freshly cut white flowers. Then, the vanilla rises from the glass. Finally, with age, Roederer releases complex aromas of caramel and chocolate. His true signature. The secret of these rich and complex fragrances? It is due to the liqueur detirage, this precious nectar added directly to the bottles of Champagne during their ageing. The liqueur of Roederer champagnes comes exclusively from the greatest wines of the house vineyard, voluntarily forgotten in oak barrels for four to ten years. Tasted pure and alone, these nectars could compete with the greatest white Burgundies. On the palate, the amateur remains fascinated by this wine of a great dancer with a nervous and slender body. A dream of superlative elegance, of a dazzling party that will never end. In the rhythmic whirlwind of movement and dance. The resurrected imperial party. A twirling and magical waltz.
