Champagne Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009 Bouteille - Champmarket

Seeking the masterpiece for more than two centuries


Louis Roederer champagnes are born from a patient confrontation with the elements, a combination of talents, a science of balance, a resistant and generous grape, rooted in the soil of Champagne, thus giving birth to a wine with a sunny soul and crystal elegance.


One of the last great Champagne Houses still family-owned and independent


When he inherited the Champagne House in 1833, Louis Roederer, an aesthete and entrepreneur, took the visionary step of enriching his vineyards in order to control all the stages of wine making. He thus forged a unique style, spirit and taste. In the middle of the 19th century, by acquiring vines chosen with instinct and eclecticism on the lands of the great Champagne crus, Louis Roederer acted against the customs and habits of his time.While some people buy grapes, Louis Roederer cherishes the vineyard, understands the character and methodically acquires the best plots. With the idea that a great wine finds its source in the earth, with the love of tradition and the passion for the future, he thus traced an exceptional destiny for the House that will henceforth bear his name.


A great wine finds its strength in the soil


His successor, Louis Roederer II, was driven by the same values: a patient vision of champagne, a conception of the estate's heritage, and an instinctive boldness. He also drew his inspiration from a love of books and drawings, which he collected with talent. From the 1870s, Louis Roederer Champagne wines travelled as far as the United States, and as far as Russia to the table of the Tsar, for whom Louis Roederer II created a new champagne: the first prestige cuvée "Cristal" was born in 1876. Its subtlety and elegance have since made the reputation of excellence of the House of Louis Roederer.During the 1920s, the new heir to the House of Louis Roederer, Léon Olry Roederer, was keen to create a very balanced wine, a constant and delicate combination of several vintages, the promise of perfect quality. He is thus outlining the future Brut Premier. This beautiful blend contributes to the renaissance of the House of Louis Roederer.After his death, from 1933 onwards, his wife Camille led the House with a brilliant temperament and remarkable energy, to full success. A keen horse racer (she owned one of the most famous stables in the world) and a well-informed patron of the arts, she elegantly revived the festive dimension and the pleasure of champagne. Camille Olry Roederer held numerous receptions in the beautiful family mansion in Reims. These evenings marked the history of the House and won over a new generation of champagne lovers.An oenologist and agricultural engineer, his grandson Jean-Claude Rouzaud took over the integrity of the estate. He undertook the inspired work of re-separating the vineyard. By working passionately at the very heart of the business, he cultivates more than ever the spirit of inventiveness that now contributes to the personality of the House.Still independent, still family-owned, the House of Louis Roederer is now run by its son, Frédéric Rouzaud, who represents the seventh generation of the lineage. With the same patience and unwavering loyalty to its creative vocation, the House of Louis Roederer now ships three million bottles around the world each year.
