REIMS, CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE
Champagne Louis Roederer was established in 1776 and remains under the ownership of the Rouzaud family to this day. With over 240 hectares of vineyards located exclusively in Grands and Premiers Crus villages, Champagne Louis Roederer is self-sufficient for approximately 70% of their non vintage production and 100% of their vintage champagnes.
The current CEO is Frédéric Rouzaud, 7th generation of the Roederer family. Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Chef de Cave since 1999, was appointed Executive Vice President in 2006.
