Louis Roederer and Key People

loo-ee roh-dehr-air. You may hear (and see) loo-ee roh-eh-d'ray or something similar given as a pronunciation, even by native French speakers, but the Roederer name is considered to originate in Germany. It is pronounced with the final 'r' very lightly at the Louis Roederer Champagne House as well as by the family. 'Roh-dehr-air' is the accurate pronunciation.
