Magnum bottle, 1.5 litre. Collection 242 represents Louis Roederer Champagne House's 242nd blend since its foundation. Each Collection blend has its own identity which will gradually and fully reveal itself over time. 

To further enhance the freshness and to balance the superb maturity of the harvested grapes, Perpetual Reserve wines has been created. 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 enhanced tasting sensations. 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 has been an increase in the proportion of oak-aged reserve wines that goes into the blends. These reserve wines balance the freshness brought by the Perpetual Reserve wine and lend the wine greater intensity.

Collection has been made to embrace modernity, weave in complexity and grace it all with the virtues of a great champagne. 

Collection 242 opens with notes of white fruit, citrus zest and acacia blossom, which are followed by a light touch of roasted hazelnuts, the hallmark of the Chardonnay. The long, very pure structure ends on a pleasing saline note. Collection 242's freshness, precision and finesse make it an exceptionally approachable champagne, yet one that also evolves beautifully over time to reveal even more complex and precise flavours.

The 242nd blend is composed as follows:

Perpetual Reserve Wines: 34%

Reserve wines aged in oak: 10% 
(2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016)

2017 Vintage: 56%

The bottle come presented in a Louis Roederer Collection 242 branded box.
