Louis Roederer Brut Premier Nebuchadnezzar (15L) | Wooden Case
Louis Roederer Brut Premier Nabuchodonosor Wooden Case is a great classic that resonates with a modern taste.
Genesis of the wine: The upheavals of the early 1900s, particularly the First World War which destroyed more than half of the Louis Roederer estate, led Léon Olry Roederer to rebuild his vineyard. He decided to buy grapes to ensure the continuity of the Champagne House in this period of crisis and, at the same time, created a multi-vintage wine expressing a consistent taste regardless of the year of harvest. This is now the Brut Premier!
40% Pinot Noir – 40% Chardonnay – 20% Meunier – 5% oak barrels with weekly stirring of the lees – 10% reserve wines matured in wood – partial malolactic fermentation.
The Brut Premier cuvée is made from the 3 Champagne grape varieties from over 40 different crus. It is a blend of 6 years of harvest, part of which comes from the Louis Roederer reserve wine collection aged in oak barrels for several years. It benefits from an average of 3 years of maturation in the cellars and also from a 6-month rest after disgorgement to perfect its maturity. The dosage is adapted to each vintage between 10 and 11 g/l.
