More than 240 years of history for one of the few Champagne houses still left with a family and independent vocation. Maison Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 in Reims but assumed the appearance that made it a mythical winery only in 1833, when Louis Roederer inherited its leadership, radically transforming it thanks to a revolutionary vision for the time.
Louis is convinced that a great wine is born, even before being in the cellar, in the vineyard and decides – going against the practice of those years – to stop buying grapes to focus everything on the constant improvement of his land. This is why it expands its vineyards, methodically selecting only the best Champagne crus and thus drawing the philosophy that still inspires the Maison today.
More than two centuries later, in fact, what makes Roederer’s champagnes extraordinary is its incredible vineyard: 241 hectares of Grand and Premier Cru located between the Marne Valley, the Reims mountain and the Côte des Blancs. In short, a celebration of the biodiversity of the Champagne area.
To this, we add an impeccable work in the cellar and by true artisans that enhances the character and richness of each single parcel.
Champagne Cristal and Brut Premiere are just two of the legendary wines “invented” by the Maison and the symbols of its exceptional quality level, which has remained unchanged over time.
Today Maison Louis Roederer is led by the seventh generation of the family, in the person of Frédéric Rouzaud. Chef de Cave is Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon.
