The Louis Roederer Brut Premier qualifies itself as a modern classic in the world of Champagnes. As per Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, cellar master of Louis Roederer, its freshness, finesse, and merriment are "an invitation to celebrate". The Brut Premier was born at the beginning of the 20th century.
After World War I destroyed half the winery, Léon Olry Roederer bought additional grapes to ensure the brand's survival. At the same time, he created a wine of several vintages with a constant taste, independent from the year of harvest - the Brut Premier of today.

How to serve
A passion for great wines and a desire to compensate for the limits that the "château policy" naturally imposes on the development of Louis Roederer Champagne have, over the years, driven Jean Claude and then Frédéric Rouzaud to acquire an exclusive group of properties around the Champagne House in Reims which, although managed truly independently, share the same philosophy of excellence, and today make up the "Louis Roederer Group".More about the Winery
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.View more
