Releasing in 2021 for the the first time ever and replacing the estate's Brut Premier range, Louis Roederer's Collection Series is a new range of multi-vintage Champagnes where each release will be specifically number, a concept made famous by Krug’s Grande Cuvée.

 

The idea behind the move for this legendary Champagne house behind Cristal is to give in to nature and showcase more vintage variety in their value release, while still showcasing the estate's unique style, rather than having to manipulate the winemaking process in the vineyard and cellar in an attempt for every release to taste the same.

 

The major practical difference between the previous Brut Premier range and Collection series is the inclusion of a 'perpetual reserve' and the significant increased use of the oak-aged reserve wines. Ultimately boosting the average age of the Champagne, the reserve wine gives extra tertiary characteristics to the final release.

 

The perpetual reserve used in the Collection series began with the 2012 vintage and has been enriched each year with wines from the latest harvest stored in large capacity oxygen-free stainless-steel vats. The oak-aged reserve wines are made from young plots on the Cristal estate, giving the wine immense intensity and wonderful salinity. Roederer kicked off this exciting range with no. 242, representing the number of blends since the foundation of Maison Louis Roederer in 1776.

 

A debut release was declared to be 'very impressive indeed' by the Wine Advocate's William Kelley and a 'beautiful wine' by Jancis Robinson MW.
