(01-2014) The exceptional maturity of the harvest (lowest acidity since 1959), along with the quality and quantity was reminiscent of great vintages like 1970 and 1982. In the Côte des Blancs, grape harvesting began on 14 September, while in the Marne Valley, Louis Roederer started two days before everyone else. Average degree levels varied between 10 and 12.5 °C, and the grapes were beautifully healthy. In the Montagne de Reims, everything began on 20 September. During this time, the more abundant plots continued to ripen. Yields from the vineyards of Verzenay and Verzy were close to record levels. As in the Côte des Blancs, weather conditions in August and early September made quality compatible with high yield, thus promising a great vintage. Disgorged 2011. 57% Pinot Noir. Dosage 8 g/l with the same wine. Lovely richness on the nose with real spread of crème pâtissière but very tight and refreshing too. Very satisfying. At peak and very flattering. Long and fresh. Spreads opulently but not dully across the palate. So complete. Such lovely neatness.

(12-2005) One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish. Louis Roederer does not display a disgorgement date or consumer friendly lot number on its non-vintage Brut. This is regrettable as it has consistently been one of the finer bottlings in this category.

Dans une coupe, Roederer se déplace dans une atmosphère dorée, chargée de peu de matière. S’annoncent d’abord des parfums de jeunesse de citrons et de fleurs blanches fraîchement coupées. Puis, la vanille s’élève du verre. Enfin, avec l’âge, Roederer libère des effluves complexes de caramel et de chocolat. Sa vraie signature. Le secret de ces parfums riches et complexes ? Il tient à la liqueur de tirage, ce précieux nectar ajouté directement dans les bouteilles de Champagne pendant leur vieillissement. La liqueur des champagnes Roederer provient exclusivement des plus grands vins du vignoble maison, volontairement oubliés en barriques de chêne pendant quatre à dix ans. Dégustés purs et seuls, ces nectars pourraient rivaliser avec les plus grands Bourgognes blancs. Au palais, l’amateur reste fasciné par ce vin de grand danseur au corps nerveux et mince. Un rêve d’élégance superlative, de fête éclatante qui ne finira jamais. Dans le tourbillon rythmé du mouvement et de la danse. La fête impériale ressuscitée. Une valse virevoltante et féérique.
