Louis Roederer Magnum Brut Premier Lt. 1.5
Always on the borderline between aperitif and full-meal wine, the Brut Premier asserts its own fresh style: direct, precise and juicy at the same time.
Brut Premier is elaborated each year, seeking the same balance between freshness and pleasantness: it is both elegant and rich, youthful and mature, with a very particular structure, bordering between an aperitif wine and a wine for the whole meal. Each year is assembled and recreated with patience, starting from the strength of the last vintage (the base), which must be softened, patinated and tamed with care so as never to lose its peculiarities! It is the reserve wines, aged for individual parcels for up to 10 years in French oak barrels, that give Brut Premier its unmistakable characteristic. This is painstaking work, involving 200 to 300 different lots: wines, grape varieties, crus, and vintages are harmoniously and delightfully blended so that everything changes but stays the same!
40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay of which 10% vinified in wood (oak barrels) and 20% Meunier.
Brut Premier benefits from an average of 3 years of cellar aging, to which is added a 6-month rest after disgorgement to perfect its maturity.
The dosage is 9 g/l.
A bright yellow wine with golden highlights and a very dynamic effervescence. On the nose, there are aromas of candied citrus (lemon) with hints of peel, sour, combined with the sweetness of toasted hazelnut, dulcet acacia flowers at the height of flowering. The palate is rich, fluid, round and fresh. The attack centers on juicy, direct, dense fruit, pure but characterized by sweetness, lingering in a savory freshness that imparts remarkable mineral precision, elegance without excess. The feeling is delicate, smooth, consistent and with a special immediacy!
