  • Product details
    After the First World War destroyed half of the Louis Roederer estate, Léon Roederer decided to replant the vineyards but wanted to keep his Champagne House in production in the meantime. He bought grapes from vineyards that survived, to create a multi-vintage Champagne that would have consistent flavour whatever the harvest. Enter Louis Roederer Brut Premier, a complex, rich and powerful, a cut above other Champagnes in the same price range and Shorty’s has it in a lovely bright bubbly gift box to reward someone in style.
  • Tasting notes
    The palate is rich and ripe with a luxurious texture that coats the palate, the signature of an outstanding Chardonnay. Pinot noirs and meuniers from the Vallée de la Marne add intensity, smoothness and juiciness to the wine. The finish is energetic, fresh and saline.

James Suckling, July 2021

Aromas of cooked apple, bread dough and lemon tart follow through to a full body with round, delicious fruit and a rich, flavorful finish. Yet, it remains tight and fine with lovely, compressed bubbles. New energy and freshness. Medium-to full-bodied with layers of fruit and vivid intensity.
