Louis Roederer Brut Premier

Louis Roederer, Champagne, Brut Premier nv The nose smells of fresh bread, mushrooms and biscuits topped with cinnamon. In the mouth this highly acidic sparkling tastes of green apples and peaches and lasts for a long time.

The grapes behind the wine are 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier. A portion of the base wine is matured in oak and receives weekly battonage after the primary ferment is finished. Some of the base wine also goes through malolactic. The final assemblage includes reserve wines that are comprised of another 5 vintages. After the second ferment the wine matures en tirage for 3 years. The dosage is 10-11 grams per litre. Produced in Reims 12% purchased for $35.99 at Bottle Barn Louis Roederer
