Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne
From the producer of the world famous Cristal, this is an excellent non vintage Champagne that’s true to the Louis Roederer house style. A blend of around 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier, it is aged on yeast lees for 3 years.
Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier has all you could want in a great non vintage Champagne.
A very frothy white mousse shows excellent hold hovering over a pale straw base with touches of pale gold to the edgings. Exceptionally fine and very profuse bead. Yeasty aromas of citrus, oily baked bread and light toast are followed by hints of cashew and subtle brioche. Rich with a gentle creaminess, yet fresh and refined, mouth-watering flavours of pear and citrus meld into yeast lees, oily baked bread like characters and subtle honeyed toast elements. Good complexity with a dry stimulating finish and long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
This has a core of fresh, extremely fleshy and attractive peaches and lemons from a ripe year. The delicacy and purity of this Champagne is stunning, as is its gently powerful nature. Such great purity here. In great form! Drink now.
