Louis Roederer named “World’s Most Admired Champagne Brand”  for the 5th consecutive year

For the 2024 edition of this prestigious award, the international jury at Drinks International, composed of some of the industry’s leading experts, honoured Louis Roederer once again by naming it the “World’s Most Admired Champagne Brand 2024”.


The family-run Champagne House headed by Frédéric Rouzaud is delighted and humbled to receive this prestigious award for the fifth year in a row. It is a fantastic recognition of the dedication and hard work of the Roederer team, both in the vineyards and in the cellars.

When the award-winners were announced on 5 March, journalist Giles Fallowfield, who oversees the awards every year, praised Rodererer’s “desire for excellence tied in with a lust for experimentation and re-invention […] which, in response to the changing climate, led it to create the multi-vintage cuvée Collection 242”.

Giles Fallowfield then quoted Roederer’s Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, speaking at the launch of two other Collection blends (243 based on 2018 and 244 based on 2019).”We now have earlier harvests and get riper and healthier fruit. […]  All the rules we learned at school are irrelevant, we are having to relearn and question many things to create a champagne of freshness. […] reflecting a real resilience.”


The judging panel, made up of sommeliers, retail buyers, importers, Masters of Wine, wine writers and journalists – including some of the most famous names in the wine world – determines the rankings based on the quality and consistency of the wines and their production, the coherence of the brand strategy and marketing, value for money, the respect and admiration they have for the Champagne House, and the strength of the brand in relation to its peers.
