Louis Roederer, Collection 242 NV

RRP £44.20

The new climate and era have seen Louis Roederer replace its Brut Premier with Collection. The new cuvée’s resilience derives from the réserve perpétuelle of previous vintages. In the challenging 2017 vintage, Chardonnay was made to play an important role. The resulting cuvée is rich with fine depth, and comes with nicely toasted, ripe fruity aromas of vanilla, lemon and hazelnut. The taste is softly lush but fresh and elegantly layered.
