Champagne Théophile is today the successor of “Théo” champagne which enjoyed its heyday in the 1930s when honourable establishments of Montparnasse served it to regale artists and night-owls alike. Théophile is now produced by Louis Roederer in keeping in the style which made its success. It should not be considered Roederer’s second wine as stylistically it is distinct to Roederer. There is a genuine family relationship, however, with key differences setting this champagne apart and making it all the more intriguing.
A pale light gold with long-lasting fine bubbles. On the nose there is a rich, subtle bouquet with hints of white flowers and hawthorn. The mouth offers a lively bite with a creamy structure. It is perfectly balanced, full-bodied and generous, with a refined, lip-puckering zing adding just the right touch of provocation.
