Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) 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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From NV Vintage) Brut Premier is a blend of vintage wines, enhanced by the addition of 10% to 20% oak-aged wines from Roederer’s extensive reserve cellars. Grapes are used from only the finest crus with a rating of 98 or more on Champagne’s regional rating scale — Pinot Noir from the Valley of the Marne and Montagne de Reims; Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. Roederer uses only the first pressings from these exceptional grapes for the standard-bearing Brut Premier. Finished wine is cellar-aged for an additional four years before release.
