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. 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 exuberance.
It is a fully mature wine, opening with an impressive bouquet of juicy Meyer lemon, lime zest, crisp yellow orchard fruit, hazelnut, and brioche. The finish is exquisite with racy acids, toasty lees, and mineral notes.
The wine presents a smooth palate of subtle lemon curd and pink berry flavor.
Its fruity flavor will pair perfectly with braised chicken in red wine, shellfish, and boeuf bourguignon. You could also enjoy it with mild and soft cheese.
About the Producer:
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.
