||A passion for great wines and a desire to compensate for the limits that the "château policy" naturally imposes on the development of Louis Roederer Champagne have, over the years, driven Jean Claude and then Frédéric Rouzaud to acquire an exclusive group of properties around the Champagne House in Reims which, although managed truly independently, share the same philosophy of excellence, and today make up the "Louis Roederer Group". It comprises Roederer Estate and Scharffenberger, both in California, Champagne Deutz and Maison Delas in the Rhone Valley, Ramos Pinto and its vineyards in Douro, Portugal, Les Domaines Ott* in Provence, and Château de Pez and Château Haut Beauséjour in Bordeaux (Saint Estéphe), which were joined at the end of 2006 by Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande (Pauillac) and Château Bernadotte (Haut Médoc). Louis Roederer also has an equal share with the Duclot Group in the Maison Descaves in Bordeaux.
