Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV Reviews
"Pale gold hue with driving bubbles and a full mousse. Fresh aromas of multi-grain bread with ginger, toffee and vanilla accents. Lively, frothy entry of tart lemon/lime flavors laced with razor-sharp acidity. Dry mineral, citrus and toast punctuate the lengthy finish." - 93, The Wine News
"A beautifully integrated wine that shows richness, even a touch of toasty age to go with apple and intense acidity. The acidity shows so well against the rich backdrop of ripe fruits and a final edgy texture." - 91, Wine Enthusiast
"A delicate Champagne, with spring blossom, smoke, yellow apple and anise flavors set on a fine-grained texture. The finish is fresh and juicy, with the smoky note lingering on the modest finish. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2019." - 90, Wine Spectator
"The NV Brut Premier is a soft, creamy wine that captures the essence of the house style in its refined mousse, precise aromas and flavors and compelling overall balance. It shows gorgeous inner perfume in an approachable style best enjoyed on the young side. Year after year, this is one of Champagne's most reliably outstanding entry-level wines." - 90, Wine Advocate
"The firm, toasty richness of reserve wines lends depth and structure to this nonvintage brut. The lemon-curd fruitiness is round, edged by mineral and wood tones. For aperitifs." - 90, Wine & Spirits
Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV Tasting Notes
"From the outset, Brut Premier affirms its personality and seduction: the texture is full and generous and, in a fairly unexpected way, integrates characteristics of maturity associated with fruitier and more refreshing notes. The wine has a fresh festive finess. In the mouth, the wine has structure, richness and length. It is a full, complex wine that is both modern and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic." - Winery Notes
Blend: 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier.
