Brut Premier NV
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay|
We have long been fans of this brilliant Champagne House. Still family owned, Roederer is famed for owning the largest amount of their own vines, compared to any of the other Grandes Marques houses. The current release of the 'Brut Premier' is based on the 2013 harvest and after nearly 4 years on the lees in bottle this was disgorged last year and is now looking superb. As always it walks the fine line between brightness and fruit weight. Deliciously fresh and crisp, yet creamy and warmly biscuity too. A great wine and also a perfect intro to the wines of this historic house, most famous for their Cristal Champagne - the Brut Premier is a delicious, sophisticated glass of Champagne. L&S (May 2018)

There's a QR code on the back. If you have the app you can scan it and learn full details. Based on 2015 (they have just moved on from 2014). A greenish tinge to deep straw colour. Some real depth on this nose with all the elements building on each other. Really is superior! Great harmony and nothing out of place. Incredibly persistent. Bravo!

The nose is super fresh and has plenty of ripe strawberries, along with lemons and grapefruit. The palate has a tense, fresh, mineral-salt core and then layers of fleshier, supple fruit. All you want in a great NV! This is 75 per cent from the cooler 2013 harvest, the balance made up of reserve wines, ten per cent of which is much older material. Drink or hold.

Known for its high percentage of estate vineyards, this excellent non-vintage only uses approximately 10% of bought-in Pinot Meunier - the remainder is a rough 50/50 split between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay estate fruit. It has a zesty lemon and fresh apple character, with a steely mineral note and some wood and cream in the background. This is fresh, but nicely rounded. Rating: 90 Decanter Magazine (Oct 2017)
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.
