Description

From the outset, the texture is full and generous and, in a fairly unexpected way, integrates characteristics of maturity associated with fruitier and more refreshing notes. The wine has a fresh festive finesse, and in the mouth, the wine has structure, richness and length. It is a full, complex wine that is both modern and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.” – Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon

 

5% of the wines are matured in oak casks with weekly batonnage. 10% of the reserve wines are matured in casks with partial malolactic fermentation. Brut Premier comprises the three champagne grape varieties from more than 40 different plots. The wine is an assemblage of six years of harvesting, a part of which comes from the Champagne Louis Roederer reserve wine collection, matured in oak casks for several years. It is matured for three years in the cellar and rested for six months after disgorgement to perfect maturity. Dosage of between 10 and 11 g/l is adapted to each vintage.

Champagne Louis Roederer was established in 1776 and remains under the ownership of the Rouzaud family to this day. With over 240 hectares of vineyards located exclusively in Grands and Premiers Crus villages -Since 2000, the house has been conducting trials with organic and biodynamic viticulture across 40 ha and currently has the largest landholding of such vineyards in the region. The intention is not to gain biodynamic certification but rather to enhance the experimental approach of the house with the aim of continuously striving to improve the overall quality.
