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.
This reputation is built on Champagne Louis Roederer’s vineyards: more than 240 hectares in the finest areas of Champagne, where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official Champagne classification scale, as well as the largest holding of biodynamic vineyards in the region. These vineyards provide two thirds of the company’s needs, leading some to suggest Louis Roederer could be considered an ‘estate’ champagne.
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 the 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.
