The Louis Roederer’s bottling of “Carte Blanche” Demi-Sec is comprised of a blend of forty percent each chardonnay and pinot noir, with twenty percent pinot meunier. Five percent of the blend is barrel-fermented and the wine is aged three years sur latte prior to disgorgement, with the wine also spending an additional six months after dégorgement recovering in the cellars in Reims prior to its release. The cuvée was finished off with a dosage of thirty-eight grams per liter. The bouquet is deep and serious, offering up a fine blend of apple, white peach, patissière, spring flowers and a lovely base of complex minerality. On the palate the wine is pure and full-bodied, with a fine core, excellent mineral drive, brisk acids, moderate backend sweetness and lovely cut and grip on the long and classy finish. There is impressive precision on the tail-end of this wine, as the combination of residual sweetness, minerality and acidity are woven together beautiful. Fine juice. (Drink between 2015-2025)
The NV Demi Sec Carte Blanche is a beautiful wine in this style, with striking textural depth and nuance. Pear, apple, jasmine and mint notes abound in a very pretty, highly expressive Champagne to drink over the next few years. This is an impeccable wine in the Demi-Sec style. This release is based on the 2010 vintage. The higher level of sugar works beautifully to balance some of the austerity seen in other 2010s here such as the Rosé. Dosage is 38 grams/Liter. (AG)
0 The wine is only just off dry, giving a wine that is deliciously crisp and fruity. Ripe apple and creamed pear flavors are lifted by balanced acidity. The fruitiness and the just off-dry character make this a wine that would be just as good as an apéritif as with food. (RV)
