A FAMILY OWNED COMPANY

Founded in 1776, Champagne Louis Roederer continues as one of the very rare Champagne houses to remain firmly in the hands of the family. For two centuries, six successive generations have been responsible for building a reputation for quality and continuity.

FIRST-RATE VINEYARDS

This reputation is built on Champagne Louis Roederer’s vineyards: 240 hectares (or 592 acres) in the finest areas of Champagne where the plots are all Grand Cru and Premier Cru. These vineyards provide two thirds of the company’s needs. All vintage dated Louis Roederer champagnes are estate bottled.

LOUIS ROEDERER TODAY

Today, Frédéric Rouzaud has succeeded his father Jean-Claude at the head of the company, securing the future of Champagne Louis Roederer as an independent family House.

He continues the company’s philosophy of quality without compromise, adding Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande to Roederer’s portfolio of estates in January 2007. Wines from Roederer-owned estates in Provence (Domaines Ott), California (Roederer Estate), Bordeaux (Château de Pez and Château Haut Beauséjour) and Portugal (Ramos Pinto) are now earning world-wide acclaim in their own right, and sit proudly in the Louis Roederer portfolio alongside the fine Champagnes for which the House is renowned.
