Founded in 1776 in Reims, the Maison Louis Roederer is one of the last great Champagne house remained an independent, family-owned company and is now managed by Jean-Claude’s son, Frédéric Rouzaud, who represents the seventh generation of the lineage. With the same patience and unshakeable faith in its creative vocation. In 1833, the heir of the house – Louis Roederer – imposes himself as a visionary of his time: instead of settling for procurement contracts to buy the grapes, he expands his vineyard by selecting the best Champagne crus. Thus, the Maison Louis Roederer enjoyed resounding success as early as 1870. From the United States to Russia, Louis Roederer’s cuvées are served in the best restaurants in the world. With almost 241 hectares of vineyards, the Maison Louis Roederer draws its strength from its extraordinary vineyard, consisting exclusively of Grand and Premier Cru in the Marne Valley, the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. True mosaic of terroir, the Maison Louis Roederer vineyard is divided into 410 parcels, which reflect the diversity of the soils of Champagne.
