About The Wine

Champagne Louis Roederer is a simply great producer, for the volume of wine they release. They own a large amount of their own vineyards, are embracing organic and biodynamic viticulture, and act like a small grower rather than the big house they are.

Their vintage release is Pinot Noir dominant, at around 70%, and comes predominantly from their own vineyards in Verzy and Chouilly.

Beautifully concentrated, spicy and smooth, with a panoply of orchard fruits, particularly ripe peach.

A fine, fine wine that touches all the pleasure centres.

About Louis Roederer

The House of Roederer officially dates back to 1776 but its real history kicks off in 1833 when the entrepreneur Louis Roederer took the reins.

It remains, unusually for a large Champagne house, in family hands, and this is perhaps one of the reasons it has moved with the times so readily. They are fully behind the move to leave behind the industrial agriculture of the region's recent past and embrace organic practices across their growing vineyard portfolio.

Based in Reims, with vineyards spanning the region but concentrated in the great Pinot Noir area of La Montagne de Reims, they are perhaps our favourite 'commercial' Champagne house.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Yellow hue with shimmering, slightly amber, tints. Steady yet vibrant bubbles.

Soft, almost sweet, intense and deep bouquet of slightly tart yellow (peach) and red (red currant) fruits. Hints of spice, cocoa beans and smoke add to this generous, complex and gastronomic bouquet.

Broad, fruity and dense on the palate. The concentrated, ripe red fruit is transformed into nectar... a sensation of sweet concentration which turns to velvet thanks to the silky smooth, almost sensual bubbles.

Blend : Pinot Noir (71%) Chardonnay (29%)

Drink Until : 2025

Wine Advocate

"Roederer's 2014 Brut Vintage is beautiful, offering up aromas of pear, mirabelle plum, red berries, warm biscuits and smoke. Full-bodied, layered and elegantly muscular, it's seamless and complete, with terrific mid-palate depth and amplitude. Framed by bright acids and enlivened by a pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a penetrating finish. The blend is 70% Pinot Noir, emphasizing Verzy, and pressure is a touch higher than in its more ethereal Blanc de Blancs counterpart. As I wrote of its 2013 predecessor, this is a wine that puts many prestige cuvées to shame." - William Kelley (The Wine Advocate)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
