Brut Premier is the embodiment of Louis Roederer style, combining all the fruitiness and freshness of youth with the vinosity of a fully mature wine. This is a structured and elegantly mature wine, with a lively attack and a smooth palate. Fine bubbles and a nose of fresh fruit and hawthorn.
Smooth, complex palate mingling flavours of white-fleshed fruit (apple and pear) with red berries (blackberries, raspberries, cherries) and notes of toast and almonds. A pleasurable wine, deliciously smooth and mature.
The style is delicate and elegant. Its reserve wines bring rich round flavours that make it vibrant, fresh and generous.
40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier - 5% of wines are matured in oak casks with weekly batonnage - 10% of reserve wines are matured in casks. Partial malolactic fermentation.
Louis Roederer Brut Premier uses all 3 Champagne grape varieties from more than 40 different plots. The wine is an assemblage of 6 years of harvesting, a part of which comes from the Louis Roederer reserve wine collection, matured in oak casks for several years. It is matured for 3 years in the cellar and rested for 6 months after disgorgement to perfect maturity.
