The cuvées of the House of Louis Roederer are the fruit of patient work with fundamental ingredients, the collaboration of experts, a quest for the perfect balance, and hardy and generous grapes, cultivated in the Champagne soil, producing a wine with a summery character and crystalline elegance. In this one of a kind tasting we will have the rare opportunity to go through the entire range of this Champagne house with the guidance of Louis Roederer's Guy Cliffe.
