The dosage is 8 grams per litres.

An elegant and well-integrated bubbler
The bouquet is initially deep and a little restrained, but gradually opens up and reveals a scent of ripe fruits such as apple and pear, which again develops into slightly sweet flowers and honey before ending with concentrated citrus.
The taste is dominated by classic Pinot Noir from Verzy - concentrated, broad, deep and fruity. The champagne has strength and maturity and you find green notes, spices and ginger. The use of oak casks is expressed in the Champagne with nuances of smoke, vanilla, warm spices and minerality.
A Champagne that goes great with food.
2014 will be remembered as a year with somewhat atypical and varied weather.
The spring was warm and dry and ended in a regular heat wave at the beginning of June.
The summer, on the other hand, was autumn-like with cold and rain.
September was warm, sunny and very dry, weather usually associated with August.
The key to success in 2014 was the houses' fields, soil and especially drainage. As well as the careful work of the people who looked after and cared for the vines.
Good drainage was the Alpha-Omega for the health of the vines, all the rain that fell over the summer meant that there was a risk of flooding in the middle and lower fields if the drainage was not at its best.
Those of the Champagne houses that had "ice in their stomachs" and waited to harvest at the end of September, harvested ripe, beautiful, balanced and flavorful grapes..
Comments from a tasting:
"Louis Roederer 2014 vintage champagne is a bone-dry, vibrant and superbly-crafted champagne. Elegant and poised with a fine and persistent mousse showing a zesty, citrusy mineral core, brioche, dried apricot, toast and a steely mineral stiletto finish. Drink or hold."
