Whilst we are all so familiar with the fabulous Cristal that Louis Roederer makes, the Champagne house has crafted two new wines that allows fine wine drinkers to discover another facet of their unique winemaking expertise - Camille Charmont (rouge) and Camille Volibarts (blanc), named after managing director & owner Frederic Rouzaud's great-grandmother whom he so admired.
The project started in 2002 when Roederer replaced the 0.43ha (1-acre) Charmont plot with Burgundy and Alsace clones of Pinot Noir, specially selected for still-wine making; and the first wines were crafted back in 2014 but their Chef de Cave Lécaillon was not willing to release the wine commercially until the 2018 vintage as he was striving to achieve a still champagne that is "not to be a copy of Burgundy" and "has to come with the lightness of Champagne", and also found that the white Coteaux Champenois was even more difficult to craft, eventually leading him to a 0.55ha (1.4-acre) plot of vines in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger’s Volibarts for the production of the blanc. The vines were planted in 1997, and fought the grapevine fanleaf virus, producing a very small crop of grapes full of character, which Lécaillon foresaw would make exceptional still wine.
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.
