Producer: Louis Roederer
An outstandingly good Vintage Roederer. In 2002 the grapes in Champagne achieved their highest levels of natural ripeness since 1990. Grosso modo, the vintage has also achieved the highest praise since 1990. Roederer owns over 215 hectares of vineyards and is one of the few grandes marques that can lay claim to make all of its own vintage Champagne from its own vines.The results are astonishing. The 60% Pinot Noir sourced largely from a 15 hectare plot in the famous village of Verzenay and the Chardonnay from some of the great villages of the Côtes des Blancs.The wine is partially oak fermented and aged on its lees for four years; the dosage is 11 g/l. The wine has a wonderfully complex nose of acacia and stone fruits, the palate is balanced wih oak-fermented fruit with creaminess. The richness and depth of the wine makes this the ideal champagne to accompany a meal. It is especially delicious with fish or white meat served in a sauce and is best served at temperatures of around 50-54°F (10 to 12°C).
