Louis Roederer Brut is the quintessential champagne label of the Louis Roederer House in Reims, France. Founded in 1776, the Roederer House is best known for the prestigious Cristal line; however it is the Louis Roederer Brut that truly encapsulates the essence of the brand's well-articulated style. Produced by one of the increasingly rare family-owned houses of champagne, Roederer Brut benefits from the longstanding commitment of ensuring that quality maintains precedence over quantity.
Louis Roederer holds advantage in the respect that the house exclusively owns the 190-hectare vineyard from which 56% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Meunier grapes are sourced, then married and aged in oak casks for two to six years. The result is Roederer Brut Champagne; endowed with a youthful fruitiness, fresh exuberance and the complex elegance of a mature wine.

Tasting Note: Texture is full and generous and in a fairly unexpected way, integrates characteristics of maturity associated with fruitier and more refreshing notes.
