Louis Roederer Brut Premier

$350

42% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 18% Meunier from 55% estate vineyards; 16% fermented and matured in oak casks; 30% malolactic. The rise and evolution of this cuvée over the past 15 years, and particularly since the construction of its dedicated facility in 2007, has showed no sign of slowing today, as Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon continues his fanatical regime of experimenting, tweaking and refining every detail. I’ve long adored Brut Premier, a grand pinnacle and dependable bargain in the non-vintage Champagne stakes. 94 points, Decanter

 

A very composed and convincing Brut Premier that is based on the 2016 harvest. The aromas run through lemon and peach to fresh hazelnut, brioche and gently flinty notes. The palate has piercing flavors of grapefruit, lemon, peach and pink berries. Seamless and layered textural build. Fresh finish. Impressive. 93 points, James Suckling

Description

LOUIS ROEDERER

Louis Roederer is most well-known for its prestigious, award-winning Cristal Champagne that is of exceptional quality, aristocratic elegance and distinct style. In 1833, the aesthete and entrepreneur Louis Roederer took a visionary approach to enrich his vines, aiming to master every stage of the wine’s creation. He forged the wine’s unique style, character, and taste. In the mid-nineteenth century, Louis Roederer acquired some of Champagne’s grand cru vineyards—an approach that contrasted sharply with contemporary practices.

Today, Louis Roederer’s Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon and Louis Roederer were crowned Supreme World Champion for the Louis Roederer NV Brut Premier in Magnum and Sparkling Wine Producer of the Year 2018 at the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships. Founder and head judge Tom Stevenson said: “We were delighted to see Louis Roederer Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon collect the ultimate crown for their NV Brut Premier.” With 240 hectares located exclusively in the Grands and Premiers Crus of the Marne, the grapes are all pressed on site and today the Louis Roederer House has remained an independent, family-owned company and is now managed by Jean-Claude’s son, Frédéric Rouzaud, who represents the seventh generation of the lineage.
