Brut Premier characterizes the timeless Louis Roederer style with the combination of fresh, youthful fruitiness and the vinous qualities of a fully matured wine. It is a structured wine with a lively attack and a smooth palate. Brut Premier comes in antique-colored bottles that filter out nearly 100 percent of light and are light weight.
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!p>
This is a distinctly red-fruited release of Brut Premier, the only Roederer wine that consistently includes some softer lots taken through malolactic conversion. It tastes like chalk infused with the sweet juice of fraises des bois, deepening to raspberries, lasting on spice. There’s tension to the wine so it finishes clean, but it’s also “fun to drink,” as one taster noted, “with the dosage the wine needed.”
