Roederer Brut Premier Champagne
Brut Premier is the embodiment of
Louis Roederer 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.
Blend: 56% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot
Meunier, including 10% of reserve wines from three former
harvests, aged in oak casks for 2-6 years.
Maturation: an average of three years ageing on lees,
plus another six months after disgorging.
Dosage: 11-12g/L of sugar from the dosage liqueur.
Tasting notes: a golden colour with fine bubbles and
a nose of fresh fruit and hawthorn. Smooth, complex
palate 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.
Choice of food: Brut Premier is excellent as an aperitif
but also readily accompanies light entrées based
on fish or shellfish.
