From the maker of the world-renowned Cristal, Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier is crafted from 45% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay from Roederer's own vineyards, supplemented by 10% of Pinot Meunier sourced externally. Boasting a beautiful golden hue and very fine bubbles, this wine offers aromas of fresh fruit with hints of nutty yeast. On the palate, the Chardonnay gives smooth flavours of apple and pear which balance with the blackberries, raspberries and cherries notes of the Pinot Noir alongside the notes of toast and almonds from the extended ageing. A long, complex and rewarding finish is a hallmark of the house style.
3 Point Summary

CHAMPAGNE BLEND - Champagne Blend refers to one of the world's most distinctive wine styles – the sparkling wines made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot-Meunier that are most famously associated with the Champagne region of northern France. The term, however, has come to evoke wines made in the “methode-traditionnelle” around the world. In the blend Pinot Noir adds structure and brings a certain berry-fruit nose to the blend, while the Chardonnay fleshes this out and sets the wine up for aging, particularly when the base wine is aged in oak.
LOUIS ROEDERER Champagne House was established in 1776 and is one of the few remaining family owned Champagne houses, passing in January 2006 to Frédéric Rouzaud, the 6th generation of the family to run the company. This has ensured that this famous house has not only maintained its independence but also a dedication to quality that is second to none. Louis Roederer became especially famous towards the end of the 19th century when it became the house Champagne at the Russian Imperial court. The well-balanced Roederer style is suitably rich, full bodied, even opulent.
CHAMPAGNE is located in northern France and is the name given to the world’s most famous sparkling wine. Lower temperatures than any other French region means pinot-noir, pinot-meunier and chardonnay are the primary grapes grown and these have become the foundation for sparkling wine recipes around the world. The production process employed for champagne ivolves a second fermentation is started in the bottle by the addition of yeast and sugars. This stage generates the fine bubbles and sparkle synonymous with Champagne.
