Louis Roederer Brut Premier
The house of Louis Roederer is rightly famous for their prestige cuvée Cristal but their classic Brut Premier is a great Champagne in its own right and always represents terrific value for money.
The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of wines in its price range. Apparently, it is quite possible to make great Champagne that doesn’t cost a small fortune.
Ripe pears, smoke, spices, dried flowers and herbs are some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass. The Brut Premier shows lovely mid-palate depth and fabulous overall balance. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has done it again.
