Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne NV

Champagne, FranceThe strength of any brand is its consistent quality, and that’s what you get from the Roederer Brut year in and year out. Making high-quality champagne on an immense scale is no mean feat, but it helps to be the largest independent, family-owned and managed house (founded in 1776), managing more than 235ha of prime vineyards which supply 75 percent of its needs. Brut Premier is a 35/38/28 mix of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier, with 25 percent reserve wines aged in oak casks for 2-8 years. The blend spends 36 months on its lees. Roederer is all about elegance mixed with toasted hazelnuts, brioche, Meyer lemon, and a splash of saltwater. The finish is fresh and seems to linger forever.
