Champagne Louis Roederer, creator of the famous Cristal prestige cuvée, has been synonymous with the world’s great champagnes since 1776. Brut Premier is the House’s flagship multi-vintage champagne—its most popular and best-selling wine and the champagne that sets the house style for this esteemed producer.

Tasting notes
Light gold in color, Brut Premier boasts a smooth, fullmouth. This elegant champagne is a delicate balance of fruit and acidity, an outstanding example of the Roederer tradition of producing wines of lean, firm structure with discreet fruit and subtle toast flavors.

Rating
NV: 92 Points - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of wines in its price range. Apparently, it is quite possible to make great Champagne that doesn’t cost a small fortune. Ripe pears, smoke, spices, dried flowers and herbs are some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass. The Brut Premier shows lovely mid-palate depth and fabulous overall balance. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has done it again. This is a fabulous Brut Premier. The Brut Premier is based on the 2007 vintage, with approximately 20% 2006 wines and 10% older reserves going back to 1996. The blend is approximately 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier and 40% Chardonnay. About 50% of the base wines underwent malolactic fermentation. Dosage is 9-10 grams per liter. "

90 Points - Joshua Greene, Wine & Spirits:: "A plump, rich take on the Roederer style, this is the pretty blond Parisian who manages a smile when you pass by: a little pithy, a little smoky, a little tangy with the scent of candied roses. The wine’s sweetness and acidity balance each other out, leaving a clean impression. A great start to a dinner party."


Wine maker notes
Brut Premier is a blend of vintage wines, enhanced by the addition of 10% to 20% oak-aged wines from Roederer’s extensive reserve cellars. Grapes are used from only the finest crus with a rating of 98 or more on Champagne’s regional rating scale — Pinot Noir from the Valley of the Marne and Montagne de Reims; Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. Roederer uses only the first pressings from these exceptional grapes for the standard-bearing Brut Premier. Finished wine is cellar-aged for an additional four years before release.

Technical notes
COMPOSITION: Approx 65% Pinot Noir 35% Chardonnay
