Since Champagne Louis Roederer’s founding in 1776, the
House has been synonymous with the world’s greatest champagnes.
The Louis Roederer experience is defined first and foremost by the
art of champagne making. Such artistry can only be attained when
it begins with this kind of uncompromising commitment to the
individual vines, where the essence of the final product begins to
develop. The cuvées of the House of Louis Roederer are the fruit
of patient work with fundamental ingredients, the collaboration of
experts, a quest for the perfect balance, and hardy and generous
grapes, cultivated in the Champagne soil, producing a wine with
a summery character and crystalline elegance.
A Family-Owned Company
Founded in 1776, Champagne Louis Roederer continues as one of
the very rare Champagne houses to remain firmly in the hands of
the family. For two centuries, seven successive generations have
been responsible for building a reputation for quality and continuity.
Maison Louis Roederer has remained an independent, family-owned
company and is now managed by Frédéric Rouzaud, who represents
the seventh generation of the family's lineage. With the same
patience and unshakeable faith in its creative vocation, Maison Louis
Roederer’s annual exports total three million bottles around the world.
The freshness, finesse, and brightness of Brut Premier make it the
perfect wine for festive occasions. Its structured texture, richness,
and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both
rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic. »
YESTERDAY’S DISCOVERIES, TODAY’S TREASURES
After the upheavals of the early 1900s, particularly the First World War
that destroyed more than half of the Louis Roederer estate, Léon Olry
Roederer reconstructed the vineyards. He decided to buy grapes to ensure
the continuity of the House during this difficult period and, at the same
time, created a multi-vintage wine that would have a consistent flavour,
whatever the harvest year. It is now called Brut Premier.
A SIGNATURE BLEND
A blend of around 40% Pinot noir, 40% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot
Meunier, Brut Premier comprises wine matured in oak tuns produced
from three Champagne grape varieties that originate from various crus
selected by Louis Roederer. It is aged for 3 years in Louis Roederer’s
cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging).
A GREAT CLASSIC THAT RESONATES WITH CONTEMPORARY TASTE
Striking a perfect balance between youthfulness and maturity, seduction
and character, freshness and vinosity, Brut Premier is a champagne that
is harmonious and structured, elegant and lively, with a unique exuberancy.
Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full,
complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.
