Louis Roederer Brut Collection 242 Champagne NV 75cl Gift Box
The Louis Roederer Collection 242 marks a new era for Louis Roederer, it is a development in structure, form and style. The effects of climate change and the increased importance of practicing sustainable viticulture have shaped the style of this Champagne. The creation of Collection values the environment in order to wholly expose the characteristics of the terroir. Collection is created from a range of parcels found in the heart of the Champagne region that are suited to its identity and where the emphasis is on sustainable growing practices. Collection 242 is a blend of 10% oak-aged reserve wines from 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 34% Perpetual Reserve, and 56% of the most exquisite grapes from the 2017 harvest.
'It was a desire for freedom, to take the quality of our multi-vintage blends to an even higher level, that prompted us to take a new course of action and to create Collection, a worthy successor to Brut Premier. Collection is a champagne that is vibrant and contemporary!' -Read more...

'Incidentally, there is no Vintage, Cristal or Cristal Rosé in 2017, so all the best lots went into this bottling.' – 92 points, Antonio Galloni
'The palate has encyclopedic depth, the intricacies of the Perpetual Reserve weaving their early magic; almond, sloe, gingerbread and apples; the finish has a pleasing twist of bitterness, courtesy of the small percentage of oak-aged reserve wine.' – 92 points, DecanterInitially notes of zesty citrus fruits, acacia blossom and white peach. Followed by toasted nuts adding an attractive softness to the blend and some smoky notes. The finish brings forward baked apples, hazelnuts and ripe red fruits.A great match to go with fresh shellfish or try with roasted squash salad.
