Roederer, I have a special bond with these wines after having spent a memorable couple of days at Roederer as a guest and being treated royally. Although Grand Marque Champagne is not what one might describe as artisan, there are many good things about Roederer. They are still family owned and independent, now run by the direct descendant of Louis Roederer, Frédéric Rouzaud. The production is relatively modest by Grand Marque standards at about 3 million bottles a year (dwarfed by the 33 million of Moet et Chandon) and the wine making is still in the hands of old cellar masters whose 'nose' and experience is passed down from generation to generation. There is a great deal of history here and it is always a treat and a pleasure to pop the cork on a bottle of Roederer. Composed of around 70% Pinot noir and 30% Chardonnay, 30% of which is wine matured in oak tuns, the Vintage cuvée is generally matured on lees for 4 years and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity. The 2008 has the richness and depth of vintage wine which make them admirable food fizz, some high quality smoked salmon perhaps or even some 'Ecrevisses', (that's Crayfish to you and me). I have a distinct memory of the wildly inspirational chef Keith Floyd flaming some live crayfish in Marc de Champagne before adding truffles and champagne in one of his many slapdash (yet legendary) dishes. I suspect he may have drunk a couple of bottles before that sketch.
