- Grande Marque Louis Roederer

- This is know as a 'Coteaux Champenois'

Named after one of the most remarkable figures in the history of the Louis Roederer Champagne House, these two wines (Coteaux Champenois appellation), Camille Charmont 2018 red and Camille Volibarts 2018 white, allow fine wine drinkers to discover another facet of the unique winemaking expertise of this family-owned Champagne House.

Frédéric Rouzaud wanted to pay homage to this great-grandmother whom he so admired. Camille is thus a new expression of the spirit of invention, creativity and freedom that has characterised Louis Roederer since its creation and which this remarkable woman embodied so brilliantly.

This collection of single-vineyard wines is the result of a long process of observation and experimentation which reveals a different expression of the Champagne terroirs. It is thus in perfect keeping with the approach taken by Camille Olry-Roederer whose bold spirit left its mark on the Champagne House.

Whether it is the red (a 100% Pinot Noir from a 43-ares plot in the Charmont lieu-dit in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ) or the white (a 55-ares plot of old historic Chardonnay vines in the Volibarts lieu-dit in Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger), these limited-edition cuvées are an exciting representation of the vitality and finesse of Louis Roederer's wines, in a single-varietal and single-vineyard wine with an identity of its own.

About the house

This house has serious pedigree and a long history of making outstanding wines. Roederer is still family owned and run and has a significant land holding of over 230 hectares allowing them to supply 70% of their grape requirements with excellent fruit. We are impressed by Louis Roederer’s increasing commitment to exploring biodynamics, both with treatment of their vast vineyard holdings plus the recent acquisition of a 15 hectare biodynamic parcel from Leclerc Briant. A relatively small 3 million bottles per annum of production are exported, largely to the USA.
