Louis Roederer Carte Blanche Sec

Creamy and full, Carte Blanche Sec is made from several vintages from in-house grapes, bought at the time by Léon Olry Roederer to reconstruct his vineyard after the destruction of Roederer’s estate during the First World War , so guaranteeing a constant taste whatever the year of harvesting balanced. The result is a rounded wine – also thanks to the use of reserve wines and a partial malolactic fermentation - result is a rounded taste but balanced with a fine acidity thanks to a savy mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The blend

40% Pinot noir - 40% Chardonnay - 20% Pinot Meunier - 5% of wines are matured in oak casks with weekly batonnage - 10% of reserve wines are matured in casks – Partial malolactic fermentation. Carte Blanche uses all 3 Champagne grape varieties from more than 40 different plots. The wine is an assemblage of 6 years of harvesting, a part of which comes from the Louis Roederer reserve wine collection, matured in oak casks for several years. It is matured for 3 years in the cellar and rested for 6 months after disgorgement to perfect maturity.
