Collection 242 Jeroboam (3L) | Box
With Collection, the House of Louis Roederer combines the quest for excellence that has always characterized it with a new breath of freedom, with a unique and constantly renewed goal: to create the best possible wine with each blend. This multi-vintage champagne reveals the power of the blend which expresses itself, year after year, in all the fullness of its genius. Collection is an epicurean champagne: the great multi-millennium wine of the House of Louis Roederer, its most faithful standard!
40% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir, 18% Meunier.
Collection is based on a selection of plots chosen in the heart of the Champagne region, adapted to its identity, with a priority given to sustainable viticultural practices.
To bring even more freshness and balance the beautiful maturity of the harvest, Collection is composed of a “Réserve Perpétuelle” which brings new sensations, both tactile and gustatory: the wine thus finds more breadth, depth, substance and relief; its texture more enveloping, more fleshy, increases its complexity.
Alongside this Réserve Perpétuelle, Louis Roederer has greatly increased the proportion of reserve wines in wood, which judiciously balance the freshness of the Réserve Perpétuelle and give intensity to the blend. The Collection thus gains in modernity, in complexity, adorning itself with all the virtues of a great champagne.
Collection 242: The 242nd blend of the House since its creation. It is made from 34% Réserve Perpétuelle and 10% reserve wines aged in wood from the 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages. Finally, it is completed by 56% of the successes of the 2017 harvest: mostly Chardonnays, and Pinots Noirs and Meuniers from the Marne Valley.
