LOUIS ROEDERER BRUT PREMIER NV LOUIS ROEDERER BRUT PREMIER NV

Roederer Brut Premier is one of the best non-vintage Champagnes available on the market today. A full and rich style, dominated by Pinot Noir, this wine has a complex red fruit and bread nose with a raspberry and cherry palate. This Champagne is a great partner for food.







VINEYARDS
Roederer own 200 hectares (500 acres) from the three main growing zones in Champagne.

The Cote des Blancs: 75ha of Chardonnay grapes, which provide an elegant, smooth freshness.

The Montagne de Reims: 65ha of Pinot Noir grapes, which give, power and structure.

The Vallee de la Marne: 60ha of Pinot Noir grapes which give fruitiness and roundness.

These vineyards are located in the finest villages, such as Ay, Verzenay, Vervy, Avize and Cramant where the plots rank between 95% and 100% on the official classification scale for the 'crus'.

Roederer source two thirds of their grape needs from their own vineyards, which is the largest proportion of any champagne house and enables them to have strict control over their raw materials. For example Roederer 'green harvest' in July to reduce the amount of grapes and thus improve quality.

The harvest takes place usually mid September and takes around 15 days. 600 people work in the Louis Roederer vineyards, harvesting the grapes by hand. The grapes are then transported quickly and efficiently to one of Louis Roederer's three pressing centres, which are in the heart of its vineyards.

GRAPE VARIETIES
56% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier.

VINIFICATION
Included in the blend is 10% of reserve wines, which give Brut Premier its extra dimension. Reserve wines are made up of the best wines from at least 3 former vintages, which are set aside to age in large oak casks in the Reserve Wine Cellar. The reserve wine cellar represents a considerable investment for the company: the value of the 700,000 litres of Reserve Wines; the initial cost and upkeep of the 150 casks originating in the forests of Chateauroux in central France; the air conditioning, filtration, and humidification of the Reserve Wine Cellar. Louis Roederer is the sole Champagne House to have such an extensive 'reserve' cellar.

The dosage is 12g per litre

TASTING NOTE
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.
