Description

Louis Roederer has just been awarded Drinks Biz annual “Most Admired Champagne” for 6/7 years, many prominent houses including Krug, Billecart-Salmon, Laurent Perrier, Perrier Jouët, Charles Heidsieck and more are yet to win this prestigious Champagne award. What’s sets apart Louis Roederer’s Collection NV Champagne from other NV French Champagnes? Almost all NV Champagne consist of a majority of one vintage topped up with reserve holdings of older cuvees... the best examples having circa 20% of reserve wines. These aged cuvées significantly influence flavour complexity and the texture. Louis Roederer have upped the bar to the penthouse literally, almost beyond the reach of others. Collection 244... is their 244th NV release since the establishment of the Louis Roederer House in 1776. The final blend is 41% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir and 26% Meunier. Just 54% of the cuvée is from the current vintage of the time... in this case 2019. This is where it gets serious... 10% reserve wines aged in oak and sourced from young Cristal vines (including 2012, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 vintages) are added. Then the House adds an extraordinary 36% of a multi-vintage Réserve perpetuelle cuvée containing equal parts 2012 - 2018. The effects on taste, texture, finesse, length are palpable. Serious history, right there. Enjoy Collection 244 while young and fresh... it will immediately take you to a place of peace and escape and etch a smile on your face.

Smells

A finely interwoven bouquet of green apples and berry fruit and twist of citrus - the complexity and depth of the aged reserve and perpetual cuvées adds threads of honey, beeswax, and freshly toasted sourdough.

Tastes

Superb balance... the dosage is slightly lower than in previous years, 7g/l allowing the fruit flavours to shine with a lip-smacking texture that is exciting and utterly satisfying. Flavours of green apples, lemon peel, hints of raspberries with a dark berry fruit twist... interwoven with subtle brioche, nut and honeyed lees complexities. Seriously expressive Champagne with a lingering freshness that is utterly moreish. Serve with fresh oysters, or fish... or just simply indulge yourself.
