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.
With over 70% of the grapes coming from its own estate vineyards, and the largest percentage of vineyard ownership of any major Champagne house, Louis Roederer is proud to have such careful control over the quality of its grapes. To enhance the winemaking process and ensure consistent quality and complex flavors, every good vintage year some of the very best wines are aged in large oak casks located in Roederer's reserve wine cellar.
