table talkChampagnes from Louis Roederer
are ideal for pairing with dishes in
top restaurants around the UK
Champagne is the ultimate celebratory drink, but don't let
the presence of bubbles fool you: at their heart these are
great wines and, like their still counterparts, they're often
best appreciated when paired with the right food. But
to match a wide range of dishes throughout a meal,
you need a Champagne of rare quality, character and
distinction. A Champagne such as Champagne Louis Roederer.
Among the great names of Champagne, Louis Roederer is
remarkable in a number of ways: it is still independent and familyowned
nearly 250 years after its founding in 1776, and it owns
an unusually large selection of vineyards around the region.
Those 240 hectares of vines scattered across the nest parts of
the Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne and Côte des Blancs enable
the company to use 100 per cent of its own grapes when making
its vintage styles - and almost two-thirds of its Brut Premier NV
and Carte Blanche demi sec.
Each step in the making of those Champagnes is painstaking, from
the separate vini cation of each vineyard plot to the selection of
the nest wines of each vintage to be matured in large oak casks as
reserve wines. Once mature, these bring depth, resonance and the
consistent Roederer style to Brut Premier.
All Louis Roederer Champagnes combine vivacity, complexity and
elegance, whether your favourite is Brut Premier, Vintage Brut, Vintage
Rosé or the original cuvée de prestige, Cristal. Wines that are supremely
enjoyable on their own, but also superb matches for a wide variety of
dishes - as an ever-growing number of restaurants are discovering.
