Light gold in color, Brut Premier boasts a smooth, full mouth. This elegant champagne is a delicate balance of fruit and acidity, an outstanding example of the Roederer tradition of producing wines of lean, firm structure with discreet fruit and subtle toast flavors.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Light and lively, featuring apple, toast, ginger and light vanilla flavors. Balanced and on the dry side, with a creamy texture and a lingering butter pastry aftertaste. Drink now through 2011. 42,000 cases imported. –BS The #95 in Wine Spectator's 2009 Top 100  (Nov 30 2009)

Wine Advocate 89 points - The NV Brut Premier is a pretty, perfumed offering redolent of pears, greens apples and flowers. This medium-bodied, refined NV Champagne offers excellent length and a crisp, refreshing finish with notes of sweetness that linger on the close. The Brut Premier is unique among the estate’s wines in that it contains 20% Pinot Meunier in addition to the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Roughly 30-40% of this wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. This is Lot: L 030946A104787, disgorged February 26th 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.  (Dec 2008)

Wine Advocate 91 points - In tasting Roederer’s 2008 Brut Rose, I am certainly reminded of the belief stated in their press releases that “a great rose Champagne must be made from very ripe grapes,” which, they go on to explain, is the reason why this cuvee is always predominantly informed by the steep, shallow-soiled, south-facing, waterside slopes of Cumieres. Certainly what has been extracted from the two-thirds Pinot here – colored via saignee – is an essence of ripe, juicy fresh red currant and red raspberry laced with lemon and orange rinds and perfectly set off by close to ten grams of residual sugar. A faintly sweaty tang and subtle suffusion of chalk add interest – and slight grain of tannin invigoration – to a lusciously refreshing but still very much fruit-dominated finish. I wouldn’t want to rule out some additional depth of flavor emerging over the next couple of years, but it would be a shame to miss out on this cuvee in its exuberantly fresh-fruited youth.
This is a particularly good bottling of Brut Premier. Drawing on Roederer’s famed reserve wines, it has a touch of toast that adds a round character to well as fresh, vivid lemon and grapefruit flavors. Drink this delicious, rich wine now. (Nov 2013)

Champagne Louis Roederer, creator of the famous Cristal prestige cuvée, has been synonymous with the world’s great champagnes since 1776. Brut Premier is the House’s flagship multi-vintage champagne—its most popular and best-selling wine and the champagne that sets the house style for this esteemed producer.
Wine maker notes
Brut Premier is a blend of vintage wines, enhanced by the addition of 10% to 20% oak-aged wines from Roederer’s extensive reserve cellars. Grapes are used from only the finest crus with a rating of 98 or more on Champagne’s regional rating scale — Pinot Noir from the Valley of the Marne and Montagne de Reims; Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. Roederer uses only the first pressings from these exceptional grapes for the standard-bearing Brut Premier. Finished wine is cellar-aged for an additional four years before release.

Technical notes
COMPOSITION: Approx 65% Pinot Noir 35% Chardonnay
