Louis Roederer Collection 242Regular price €65,00
Created from the Perpetual Reserve and the oak-aged reserve wines, complemented by the finest wines from the most recent harvest, Collection is tied to the Champagne roots and the foundations of our Reims-based Champagne House. We therefore give ourselves the freedom to create the blend on the basis of whatever Nature gives us.
Each Collection blend therefore has its own identity which will gradually and fully reveal itself over time. Collection 242 represents the Champagne House's 242nd blend since its foundation.
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.
