Louis Roederer Brut Premier (6L Methuselah)
The upheavals of the start of the twentieth century - in particular the First World War that destroyed more than half of the Louis Roederer estate - led Leon Olry Roederer to reconstruct his vineyard. He decided to buy in grapes to ensure continuity during the period of crisis. In doing so, he created a wine of several vintages with a constant taste whatever the year of harvesting. Today this wine is Brut Premier.
40% Pinot noir - 40% Chardonnay - 20% Pinot Meunier - Brut Premier uses all 3 Champagne grape varieties from more than 40 different plots.
From the outset, Brut Premier affirms its personality and seduction: the texture is full and generous and, in a fairly unexpected way, integrates characteristics of maturity associated with fruitier and more refreshing notes. The wine has a fresh festive finesse…
In the mouth, the wine has structure, richness and length. It is a full, complex wine that is both modern and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic
