Louis Roederer Brut NV Collection 242 Champagne Magnum
Collection 242 represents the Champagne House’s 242nd blend since its foundation. It is crafted from 34% Perpetual Reserve, 10% oak-aged reserve wines from the 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages, complemented by 56% of the finest wines from the 2017 harvest: mainly Chardonnays and Pinot noirs and Meuniers from the Vallée de la Marne.
Aged between 3 and 4 years in their cellars, Collection is a deep and nuanced champagne that can be enjoyed now or with a few years of cellar-ageing to further hone its complexity and draw out the unique characteristics of each blend. This epicurean champagne is Louis Roederer’s great multi-vintage champagne, its most respected flagship wine.
Collection opens with notes of white fruit, citrus zest and acacia blossom, which are followed by a light touch of roasted hazelnuts, the hallmark of the Chardonnay. The long, very pure structure ends on a pleasing saline note. Collection’s freshness, precision and finesse make it an exceptionally approachable champagne, yet one that also evolves beautifully over time to reveal even more complex and precise flavours.
