Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne NV

Champagne, FranceBrut Premier has long impressed us but the latest bottling, tasted against its peers, really shone. This 40/40/20 mix of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier includes 10% reserve wines from three harvests, and rests in oak casks for 2-6 years. After three years on the lees and six months after dégorgement this elegant bubble reveals light, fresh, dough notes, salted almond paste and lemon pith. Medium bodied, with lively brisk lemon-lined acidity and a sea salt persistence that lasts long after the wine is over. Quietly subtle and confident, this classic is one of the top NV Bruts on our market, especially for the price.
