Product Description
Details

Produced by the prestigious Maison Louis Roederer, the well-known non-vintage Champagne Louis Roederer Brut Pemier has been revamped and renamed. Now it is called Louis Roederer Collection 242

The composition of this Champagne is rather complex. It is made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier wines coming from the 2017 vintage (56% of the blend), a selection of wines from the Réserve Perpétuelle initiated in 2012 (34% of the blend), and Reserve wines from several vintages aged in oak barrels (10% of the whole). The result is a remarkably elegant Champagne Brut Reserve

Once blended and bottled, this French sparkling wine completed secondary fermentation and was aged for 3 years minimum on lees. It was further aged for 6 months after the disgorgement, so that all its components could come together.

This is a great celebration Champagne.

Appearance

The champagne Louis Roederer Collection 242 is deep yellow with some steely and amber glints.

Nose

Remarkably expressive, with aromas of pears, peaches and apricots, hints of lees, citrus and patisserie, and intimations of aromatic herbs, red berries, dry fruit and flowers. This blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier is simply compelling.

Palate

Creamy, textured and intricate, this Champagne from Maison Louis Roederer has some minuscule, palate-tingling bubbles and a superb acidity. Medium-long, elegantly bitter finish with suggestions of red berries, dry fruit and ripe pears.

Our personal opinion

Elegant and substantial, Louis Roederer Collection 242 is simply exquisite.
