Champagne Louis Roederer Hommage Camille Volibarts White 2019

Excl. tax

Hommage Camille Charmont allows wine enthusiasts to discover another facet of the unique winemaking expertise of the family-owned House of Louis Roederer, today headed by Frédéric Rouzaud, Camille Olry-Roederer's great-grandson.

97 JS, 95 Vinous "The 2019 Hommage a Camille (Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) is even better than the Pinot. It tastes just like vin clairs here, but with the breadth and richness of a finished wine. Lemon confit, slate, mint, white flowers and tangerine open first, gently framed by a discreet touch of oak. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of Coteaux Champenois. This might be the single greatest example I have ever tasted. What a knockout."

Sourced from a 1.36-acre plot in the Volibarts lieut-dit (Le Mesnil-sur-Oger), the smaller Chardonnay clusters are crushed by foot and left to macerate for two hours before being combined with the larger grapes and then pressed together. A pre-fermentation maceration (1/3 of the grapes) at the time of pressing lends the wine a tactile, almost tannic dimension, followed by a spontaneous fermentation.

14 months aging on the full lees with a little stirring. 77% of the wine is aged in sandstone eggs, allowing the wine to breathe whilst imparting richness and fat due to their spherical shape. 23% is aged in new French oak barrels (steamed Centre France and Seguin Moreau barrels) which lend the wine subtle oaky notes without overpowering its flavor. A total of 1,655 bottles were produced.
