Louis Roederer 243 Collection Champagne
Louis Roederer 243 Collection has aromas of cooked apple, bread dough and lemon tart follow through to a full body with round, delicious fruit and a rich, flavorful finish. Yet, it remains tight and fine with lovely, compressed bubbles. This bottle brings new energy and freshness with complex layers of fruit and vivid intensity.
Collection is based on a selection of plots located in the heart of the Champagne region that are suited to its identity and where the emphasis is on sustainable growing practices.The plots for Collection are therefore carefully redefined, those on the Louis Roederer estates and those part of the historic partnerships, to retain only those plots rooted in this "Cœur de Terroir" (heart of the Terroir): lieux-dits, exposures, lands with strong identities, usually chalk soils, those most capable of giving us the best of their fruit, vintage after vintage.
To further enhance the freshness and to balance the superb maturity of the harvested grapes, the team has created a "Perpetual Reserve". Started with the 2012 vintage, enriched each year with wines from the latest harvest and stored in large capacity stainless steel vats, this Perpetual Reserve brings new tasting sensations, both tactile and gustatory: the wine acquires more breadth, depth, substance and contrast; its texture is fleshier and more enveloping, adding to the overall complexity. In parallel to this Perpetual Reserve, there is a great increase in the proportion of oak-aged reserve wines that goes into the blends. These reserve wines nicely balance the freshness brought by the Perpetual Reserve wine and lend the wine greater intensity.
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 roots of Champagne and the foundations of the Reims-based Champagne House. Therefore there is a freedom to create the blend on the basis of whatever nature has provided. Each Collection blend, therefore, has its own identity which will gradually and fully reveal itself over time
