PRODUCT INFORMATION

Collection 242 is the result of years of adaptation to the changing environment. It is the bottle that embodies climate change at its core. 

In 1986, with the release of the first Brut Premier, the climate was temperate and cool, and the efforts of the winemaker were focused on ensuring consistency across the blends. Now, with a warmer climate and riper fruits, the winemaker must ensure the wine still holds its freshness and tension. This is why for the last decade, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon and his team have been making necessary changes to their iconic Brut Premier, such as reducing the dosage. They slowly came to the realisation that the new cuvée they were crafting was quite different from the original blend, and that it needed its own name, its own identity. Collection 242 was born, and with it, an entirely new champagne philosophy. 

Brut Premier lovers, there is no reason to panic. This new cuvée will still be a blend of our favourite three grapes: 42% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, 36% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and 22% Pinot Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne. 

As mentioned prior, the major change to this cuvée is its base wine predominance, representing 56% of the blend. An additional 10% of the wine is a Roederer reserve wine, from young vines planted on chalky soil, used to make their Cristal. Aged in large oak foudres, the signature of the house, this reserve wine will ensure the spirit of Roederer still resides in this new cuvée throughout the years. This reserve wine includes the 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages.

Combining previous vintages (stored reductively, without any malolactic fermentation) in a stainless steel tank, this method ensures consistency over the years, and gives freshness and nuance to the wine. More of a grower approach, the perpetual blend is not commonly associated with the Grandes Marques, but again, Louis Roederer stands out from its peers. In Collection 242, you will find a 2017 base wine with perpetuelle reserve wines from 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Collection 242 is aged for three to three years and a half on lees. Last edit: the dosage dropped to 8g/L.
