« La fraîcheur, la finesse et la gaieté de Brut Premier sont une invitation à la fête. Sa trame structurée, sa richesse et sa longueur sont résolument vineuses. Il est complet, complexe, à la fois moderne et puissant tout en restant un grand classique. » J.B Lécaillon, Chef de Cave More info
Brut Premier Louis Roederer serve at a temperature of 8°C.
This Champagne is a blend of Champenois grape varieties par excellence (Pinot Moir, Meunier and Chardonnay) vinified in oak foudres. The wine is then aged for 3 years in the cellar and then for a further six months after disgorging. This allows the tirage liquor – which is added at this stage - to integrate well with the rest of the wine. On tasting, it reveals a vibrant elegance and energy. Its richness and length on the palate make it a complete, complex, classical champagne.
Remained the property of the same family since its founding in Reims in 1776, M. Dubois and his son, Louis Roederer is now one of the few Champagne houses still independent. In 1833, Louis Roederer inherited the house and decided to expand the vineyard. It is mainly the Cristal cuvée that contributed historically to the fame of this house. The history of Cristal, the first prestige cuvée in the history of champagne began in 1876 when Tsar Alexander II demanded a distinctive sign on his bottles of champagne, to make the imperial champagne easily recognizable by Tsar and the court. Thus was born a crystal bottle with a flat bottom, the shape and transparency are perpetuated today. Following the Russian Revolution of October 1917 Roederer Cristal has seen an eclipse before being reborn in 1924. This Cuvée, is still today, the jewel of the Roederer House. The house was managed by Frédérique Rouzaud, the grandson of Camille and Léon Olry Roederer, who owned the house from the 1920s onwards since 2006 ; now it is his son Frédérique Rouzaud, the 6th generation of the family at the head of this house which owns now 240 hectares, composed of 410 plots and located exclusively in premiers and grand crus: an exceptional wine heritage, which provides 100% of the house's needs (it does not buy grapes). To respect this great diversity of terroirs, the vinifications are fragmented. The wines are very regular and always of a high quality.
