Collection 244 Half-bottle (0.375L) | Naked Bottle
Gourmand and powerful, Louis Roederer Collection 244 half-bottle is the 244th blend of the House. Collection 244 signs the return of the texture of the Meunier de Marne et de Montagne, which brings a beautiful greediness to the structured and saline Pinots Noirs and Chardonnays.
Symbolizing the freedom of the Louis Roederer style, each issue of the Collection is a “step aside”, a new chapter in the universe of the House’s taste: each time singular, but always resolutely Roederer!
Vintage: The dry, continental year of 2019 broke all historical temperature records during unusually intense heat waves! Moderate yields and magnificent ripeness make for wines that are both dense and fresh. The harvest took place from September 10 to 21.
41% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 26% 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 “Perpetual Reserve” (36%, composed of grapes harvested in 2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017/2018) 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.
Collection is also composed of Reserve Wines aged in wood (10%, composed of grapes harvested in 2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017/2018).
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.
The cuvée Collection 244 is made from 1/3 of the vineyard of “La Rivière”, 1/3 of the vineyard of “La Montagne”, 1/3 of the vineyard of “La Côte”.
The grapes from the Louis Roederer estates are complemented with grapes from selected “Coeur de Terroir” plots from their partner winemakers.
