Louis Roederer, Brut Premier Reims Non Vintage

Louis Roederer NV #3

Imported by Maisons Marques et Domaines USA, Oakland CA.

40% Pinot Noir; 20% Pinot Meunier; 20% Chardonnay.  2008 base vintage plus 20% 2007 wine and 10% older reserves going back to 1996.  About 50% of the base wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. Dosage: 9 g/l.

Yellow gold.  A little earthier now.  Barb likes to see her Roederer sweat and the unfurling organics that come with bottle age.  A sumptuous matrix of bosc pear and praline.  The acidity and fine-boned lines of the base vintage dazzle.  Now – 2020+.
