    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    It seems everything the Roederer family does turns to gold and this is clearly no exception. The inclusion of reserve wines gives a great complexity and roundness and no doubt elevates the calibre significantly. This Champagne strikes a perfect balance between structure, fruitiness and finesse. Serve well chilled and with great celebration, whatever the occasion.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Today Louis Roederer remains one of the very few remaining family owned Houses in Champagne with 7th generation Frederic Rouzaud at the helm. From the 100 hectares acquired in 1850 by Louis Roederer, the Domaine today extends over 240 hectares averaging 98% on the official Echelle classification. All vineyard acquisitions follow Louis Roederer’s strict 70% policy – that is ownership of at least 70% of the total production. All Louis Roederer Cuvees are Estate grown with the exception of Brut Premier which is 60% estate fruit and 40% fruit sourced from long-term contracted growers. Louis Roederer farm 65 Ha of their Domaine vineyards under a biodynamic and organic regime as part of what Chef de Cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon says is a work in progress. In 2012 Louis Roederer became the largest biodynamic producer in Champagne.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Light straw hue. Complex nutty aromas, with some brioche and various bakery notes. Again, mellow, complex and and showing some age on the palate, with a little liqueur sweetness and attractive balance. Rich and deep. A satisfying mouthful.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    (2010 base year, disgorged in 2013) Meringue-like bouquet, not overtly yeasty or bready, but fresh and fruit-driven. The palate is very fine with an abundance of floral flavours; small flowers and spices galore, the palate creamy textured and finishing fairly dry with superb balance. The acidity is high, but you don't feel it. A very appetising, refreshing NV style.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Light medium yellow. Fresh but shy, restrained bouquet; some citrus aromas, trace of yeast, but fairly young and not very complex. Slightly tangy acidity, and the palate balance is good. Quality is well above average. A very stately, refined, taut wine; beautifully balanced, dry and crisp, with subtle yeastiness and good length.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Very pale colour and fine, slightly closed aromas, possibly fresh stock needing a little time to settle and mellow out. Very soft and rounded, fresh and yet restrained in the mouth. Good, but I would like it even more with a touch more cork-age.

    STEPHEN REINHARDT - WINE ADVOCATE


    Roederer's NV Brut Premier is a classic and blends about 40% Pinot Noir (from Bouzy and Ambonnay), with 20-25% Meunier (whose share is declining in this blend) and Chardonnay. Two-thirds of the grapes come from estate vineyards, one-third is purchased. (Mind you that all the other Roederer cuvées are sourced exclusively form their own vineyards!) The newest release of the Premier is based on 75% 2009 and 25% reserve wines, which are, since 1996, single vintage wines aged in large oak casks between 6,000 and 10,000 liters. Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon holds 160 vats of reserve wines that are stored blank, so without lees, which otherwise would dominate the taste, says Lécaillon. "I don't like the reductive yeast flavors. Instead I am searching for a slightly oxidative and oaky style in my reserve wine." Lécaillon's youngest Premier did not undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine opens very bright, precise and refined, with toasty and white chocolate flavors. Absolutely delicate and elegant on the palate, this is a light, silky textured and remarkably finesse-full Champagne that is fresh on the palate, thanks to its structure and slightly oaky flavors. Excellent.

    ROGER VOSS - WINE ENTHUSIAST


    The famous nonvintage from Louis Roederer has evolved and become just that little bit drier. This bottling emphasizes white fruits and crisp acidity as well as mineral texture. It is a complete wine, all the elements there. Another few months bottle age will make this wine even better, so wait until 2017.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    (2014 base year. 25% reserve wines; 40% pinot noir, 40% chardonnay, 20% meunier. Dosage 9 grams/litre) Very attractive bouquet of iced pastries, lightly toasted bread and glacé fruits, the palate well balanced, finishing clean and dry with lively, cleansing acidity. Very good.

    WILLIAM KELLEY - WINE ADVOCATE


    Based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by 25% reserve wines, the latest rendition of Laurent Roederer's NV Brut Premier is showing nicely, opening in the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, Anjou pear, white peach, pastry cream and subtle hints of freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and complete, with a delicate pinpoint mousse, ripe but racy acids and exquisite balance, this is a beautiful Brut Premier that will age in style; indeed, it will be even better with some bottle age. This is among the finest examples in its category and comes warmly recommended.
