The freshness, finesse, and brightness of Brut Premier make it the perfect wine for festive occasions. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, 
whilst remaining a great classic. — Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master

The Story

After the upheavals of the early 1900s, particularly the First World War that destroyed more than half of the Louis Roederer estate, Léon Olry Roederer reconstructed the vineyards. He decided to buy grapes to ensure the continuity of the House during this difficult period and, at the same time, created a multi-vintage wine that would have a consistent flavour, whatever the harvest year. It is now called Brut Premier.

A blend of around 40% Pinot noir, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Meunier, Brut Premier comprises wine matured in oak tuns produced from three Champagne grape varieties that originate from various crus selected by Louis Roederer. It is aged for 3 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging).

 

 Striking a perfect balance between youthfulness and maturity, seduction and character, freshness and vinosity, Brut Premier is a champagne that is harmonious and structured, elegant and lively, with a unique exuberancy. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.

Written Notes

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!

Good Quality Wine

Fresh and clean nose with intensity of Brioche yeast bread dough lime lemon zest pear cheese and youghrt, the young refreshing creamy bubbles makes the palates fresh.

  • 91p

Medium-deep lemony colour. Overt and soft, sweet tropical nose of confectionary, vanilla and white flowers. Dry, round and silky palate with a fluffy mousse with medium-sized bubbles. Easy-going and approachable, straightforward and clean palate. Seductive with bright fruit and medium length. Drinking well now with medium-term aging capacity.

”Tätä voisi juoda tosi paljon ilman närästystä ja kuivaa suuta. Pidän tästä todella. Yleensä pidän cavoja helpompina nautittavina kuin samppanjoita, joita leimaa usein minua häiritsevä terävyys. Tämä on aiemmista kokemuksistani poiketen hyvin rauhoittava, todella hyvä" – artisti Jenni Vartiainen Juha Lihtosen valitsema Jenni Vartiaisen kappale viinille: 'Duran Duran'

Roederer är onekligen ett strålande champagnehus med en exceptionell portfölj av viner. Standardchampagnen är lysande som erbjuder en hustypisk aristokratisk elegans och tillhör alltid de bästa. Konstant lovordad standardchampagne med hög andel reservviner lagrade på stora ekfat. Fyra år i buteljen före degorgeringen, endast första pressningen. I flera år en äpplig, lagringsbar och hyfsat bra standardchampagne. I dag en Cristallik champagne med enastående finess. Helt fantastisk på magnum.
