Louis Roederer has been synonymous with the world’s great Champagnes since 1776. Brut Premier is the House’s flagship multi-vintage Champagne and its most popular and best-selling wine. It’s the Champagne that sets the house style for this esteemed producer.
“Firm and finely meshed, with hints of passion fruit and pineapple mixing with poached apple, almond pastry and fleur de sel. Mouthwatering and lightly smoky on the lingering, refined finish.”

“A beautifully integrated wine that shows richness, even a touch of toasty age to go with apple and intense acidity. The acidity shows so well against the rich backdrop of ripe fruits and a final edgy texture.”

“Ripe pear and nectarine aromas and flavors, with smoke and sweet butter nuances building with air. Juicy and pliant, with very good depth and notes of butter toast and honey on the back half. Rich but lively, with strong finishing punch and lingering minerality.”
90 Points International Wine Cellar
“The firm, toasty richness of reserve wines lends depth and structure to this nonvintage brut. The lemon-curd fruitiness is round, edged by mineral and wood tones. For aperitifs.”
