The World’s Most Admired Champagne Brands 2023

#1 Louis Roederer

When the Most Admired Champagne Brands concept was first devised 10 years ago, it looked very unlikely that one single marque would become as dominant a player as Louis Roederer has. The top 10 brands have not changed much in that decade, certainly not in the past five years, but you could previously envisage any one of this group getting the most votes and topping the table in any given year. However, Roederer has won the past four surveys on the trot and has topped the table in five of the past six years. It has not been out of the top three over the past eight years and fifth, its position in 2015 when I took over producing this supplement, is the worst it has done. Key to Roederer’s success is teamwork, and at its heart is the working relationship between head winemaker Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon and chief executive Frédéric Rouzaud. They have worked together for just over 16 years, since Rouzaud took over from his father, Jean-Claude, as head of this famous house. Lécaillon preceded him by 17 years, arriving in August 1989. It’s no exaggeration to say that Roederer, under their combined stewardship, has been at the forefront of addressing the many issues thrown up by the challenge of adapting to climate change.
