42% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 18% Meunier from 55% estate vineyards; 16% fermented and matured in oak casks; 30% malolactic. The rise and evolution of this cuvée over the past 15 years, and particularly since the construction of its dedicated facility in 2007, has showed no sign of slowing today, as Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon continues his fanatical regime of experimenting, tweaking and refining every detail. I’ve long adored Brut Premier, a grand pinnacle and dependable bargain in the non-vintage Champagne stakes. (TS)
A very composed and convincing Brut Premier that is based on the 2016 harvest. The aromas run through lemon and peach to fresh hazelnut, brioche and gently flinty notes. The palate has piercing flavors of grapefruit, lemon, peach and pink berries. Seamless and layered textural build. Fresh finish. Impressive.
Based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by 25% reserve wines, the latest rendition of Laurent Roederer's NV Brut Premier is showing nicely, opening in the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, Anjou pear, white peach, pastry cream and subtle hints of freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and complete, with a delicate pinpoint mousse, ripe but racy acids and exquisite balance, this is a beautiful Brut Premier that will age in style; indeed, it will be even better with some bottle age. This is among the finest examples in its category and comes warmly recommended. (WK)
Always a fine nonvintage cuvée, this richly textured Champagne has weight to go with the wine’s structured fruitiness. White fruits are laced with lime juice and this bottling has a hint of age in its nutty background. (RV)
Racy acidity drives this sleek Champagne, swathed in a lovely, creamy mousse as it carries a finely meshed range of poached pear and star fruit, pickled ginger and Meyer lemon zest. Lithe and graceful, with a lasting, mineral-laced finish. (AN)
Coming mostly from estate fruit, the NV Brut Premier is a terrific value offering lots of golden apple and white flower notes, medium-bodied, richness, and a textured, balanced, layered mouthfeel. It’s beautifully done and one classy Champagne to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years.
Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon allows some malolactic conversion in the wines for Brut Premier, which include some purchased fruit (all of Roederer’s vintage wines are estate grown). That buttercream note is immediately apparent in this latest release, but if you give it time to open—or a year in the cellar—the initial richness gains tension and chalky savor. It’s a generous aperitif.
