Louis Roederer is one of the largest remaining independent Champagne Houses, owned by the same family since it was founded in 1776, the same year that the USA was officially founded. The house is famous for making ‘Cristal’ – the highly demanded Super Cuvée – but the Brut Premier is their classic, non vintage blend and represents excellent quality in the slightly fuller, creamier style.

Reviews & Tasting Notes
‘Roederer is one of the champagne greats, owning more vineyards than any other leading house and which supplies two thirds of its grape needs. Brut Premier (40% pinot noir, 40% chardonnay and 20% pinot meunier) is one of my favourite non-vintage champagnes, with a distinctively rich, honeyed, biscuity and notably full-bodied style. Celebrations were made for this.’ Jane MacQuitty, The Times
‘As always the ‘Brut Premier’ is fresh and crisp, yet creamy and biscuity. This is always a favourite of ours.’ Lea & Sandeman
‘Fine, dry nose with lemon sorbet notes. Balanced with toast and apple zest on palate. Young but clean, refined and elegant.’ Decanter World Wine Awards
‘There’s a lovely creaminess that underpins the current release of this Louis Roederer cuvée, but there’s plenty of buttered toast richness, well-defined bubbles and a firm baked apple mellow character to finish. A winning classic, if that’s what you’re after.’ www.thewinegang.com
‘If I were the sort of person who could afford to have a house champagne, then Roederer’s “basic” offering is the one I’d choose. It’s a brilliantly consistent, full-throated combination of thrillingly precise acidity with flavours of citrus, toast and patisserie. A reliably fine aperitif.’ David Williams, The Observer
2008 LOUIS ROEDERER Rosé Brut
Our offer price:
£56.95 £49.95 per bottle (inc. VAT)
A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, 20% of which is wine matured in oak tuns without malolactic fermentation, the Brut Rosé cuvée is aged for four years in Roederer’s cellars and left for 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity.
The wine has fruity aromas of wild red berries, followed by floral notes, and the sugary and spicy fragrance of zest; and the aromas of dried fruit and cocoa result from the wine’s vinifying in oak tuns. Rich and full-bodied, Brut Rosé exalts the maturity of the fruit. A sparkling wine with an initial impression of freshness, it opens smoothly with almost exotic notes, combined with the pure minerality of the Chardonnay grapes.
