The Champagne Vintage 2009 Louis Roeder is intense, energetic and elegant with its wonderful personality. The 37% of the wines are made in wood (oak barrels) with weekly batonnage which allow the exaltation of the fruit which is the strength point of this Champagne. The cuvee must mature in the cellar for 4 years and it must rests for 6 months after the disgorging.
