Louis Roederer Brut Premier captures the style of this Champagne House. Pale golden in colour. Delicate and persistent beading. Rich yet subtle bouquet with hints of hawthorn, almonds and toast. Clean attack with a creamy structure. The inclusion of reserve wines gives the complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes. 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. Aged an average of three years on lees, plus another six months after disgorging.
Background: Louis Roederer is one of the largest remaining independent Champagne Houses, owned by the same family since it was founded in 1776. In 1909, Tsar Nicolas II nominated Louis Roederer as the official supplier to the Imperial Court of Russia. Presented in a Louis Roederer branded box.
