Product Description

Pale golden in colour. Louis Roederer Carte Blanche is a demi-sec champagne that's slightly sweet, smooth and creamy on the palate; an ideal dessert wine. A sugar dosage gives the wine a pleasant sweetness without masking its complexity and elegance.

The inclusion of oak-aged reserve wines from four to 10 years is more apparent than in the 'Brut' quality champagnes. The reserve wines give complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes.

Background: Roederer own over 214 hectares of vineyards from the three main growing zones in Champagne.

The vineyards are located in the finest villages, such as Ay, Verzenay, Vervy, Avize and Cramant where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official classification scale for the 'crus'.

Roederer source two thirds of their grape needs from their own vineyards, which is the largest proportion of any champagne house and enables them to have strict control over their raw materials. For example Roederer 'green harvest' in July to reduce the amount of grapes and thus improve quality.

The harvest takes place usually mid September and takes around 15 days. 600 people work in the Louis Roederer vineyards, harvesting the grapes by hand. The grapes are then transported quickly and efficiently to one of Louis Roederer's three pressing centres, which are in the heart of its vineyards.
