Founded in 1776, Louis Roederer is one of the last great champagne houses to remain independent and family-run.
Since its inception, the House has aligned its destiny with that of its land. It started when the founder, Louis Roederer, took the visionary decision, contrasting sharply with the practices of the time, to own his own vines. This allowed him to understand them and develop mastery of all the growing techniques associated with them.
The vineyards – a treasure, patiently built up over time by the acquisition of vines in the finest Champagne terroirs in the Grands and Premiers Crus areas – today cover more than 240 hectares and produce all the grapes destined for the production of Cristal and the Louis Roederer vintages.
As Frédéric Rouzaud, Louis Roederer’s CEO and representative of the 7th generation of the family, puts it, "we are in awe of Nature’s magic, and we strive to serve her as best we can in order to reproduce some of this magic in our wines”.
