The 1776 founded Champagne house in Reims has more than 200 hectares of vineyard, exclusively Premier- and Grand Cru-positions. Louis Roederer uses the Maceration Pelliculaire, an intercellular fermentation, at the development of the pink champagnes.
For the production of his pink champagnes Louis Roederer combines two types of the Rosé wine pressing of the Champagne: The maceration and the assemblage. Juice of Chardonnay grapes is added to the Pinot Noir wines during the maceration to ferment together and combine with each other perfectly. After some hours on the mash the pigments of the grapes are extracted sufficiently. To ensure the colour and the style of the champagne house, one uses Pinot Noir grapes of the old vines of Cumières. They are extremely aromatically and highly concentrated. It matures on the yeast for an average of four years and then another six months on the bottle.
