Louis Roederer Brut Premier

Delicate and elegant, Brut Premier was created after the First World War when the House, after the destruction of many vineyards, decided to buy in grapes to ensure continuity during the period of crisis: the result is a fresh wine with a constant taste – ensured by reserve wines – whatever the year of harvesting.

 

The blend

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. 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. Dosage of between 10 and 11 g/l is adapted to each vintage.
