"42% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 18% Meunier from 55% estate vineyards; 16% fermented and matured in oak casks; 30% malolactic. The rise and evolution of this cuvée over the past 15 years, and particularly since the construction of its dedicated facility in 2007, has showed no sign of slowing today, as Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon continues his fanatical regime of experimenting, tweaking and refining every detail. I’ve long adored Brut Premier, a grand pinnacle and dependable bargain in the non-vintage Champagne stakes." (TS) Decanter - August 2020

 

Wine Enthusiast 92pts

"Always a fine nonvintage cuvée, this richly textured Champagne has weight to go with the wine’s structured fruitiness. White fruits are laced with lime juice and this bottling has a hint of age in its nutty background." (RV) Wine Enthusiast - December 2020

 

James Suckling 93pts

"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! Drink now."


Tasting Notes:

The Louis Roederer Brut Premier is rich, elegant and intelligently structured with great length. It opens with an energetic nose of fresh fruit; followed up by a more refined smooth palate of white fruit, almond and toast. It is a full and complex wine that is both rich and powerful.
