Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne 75cl Gift Boxed 12% ABV
From the House which produces Cristal Champagne, the Brut Premier non-vintage is the embodiment of Louis Roederer's 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. A pale golden colour, delicate with a persistent beading. A rich yet subtle bouquet with hints of hawthorn, almonds and toast.
The palate is smooth and complex, 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. Clean attack with a creamy structure. The inclusion of reserve wines gives the complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer champagnes.
The Brut Premier is a non-vintage Champagne combining at least four vintage wines in a blend of 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier, the three main grape varieties allowed in the composition of Champagne, coming from more than fifty different crus. The inclusion of reserve wines (approximately 20%) matured in oak casks for several years gives the complexity and roundness characteristic of Louis Roederer's champagnes. It is aged for 3 years in Louis Roederer's cellars and left for 6 months after degorgement (disgorging). The dosage (residual sugar) is 9g/l.
