    Winemaker's Notes:

    #95 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    Louis Roederer has been synonymous with the world's great Champagnes since 1776. Brut Premier is the House's flagship multi-vintage Champagne and its most popular and best-selling wine. It's the Champagne that sets the house style for this esteemed producer.

    Brut Premier characterizes the timeless Louis Roederer style with the combination of fresh, youthful fruitiness and the vinous qualities of a fully matured wine. It is a structured wine with a lively attack and a smooth palate. Brut Premier comes in antique-colored bottles that filter out nearly 100 percent of light and are light weight.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A smoky note of minerality complements the flavors of dried cherry and black currant, almond financier and gumdrop in this refined, creamy version. The delicate yet persistent acidity is well-integrated, leading to a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2018.

    Wine Spectator

    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.

    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. This is Lot L033331B100024. Disgorged November, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ripe pear and nectarine aromas and flavors, with smoke and sweet butter nuances building with air. Juicy and pliant, with very good depth and notes of butter toast and honey on the back half. Rich but lively, with strong finishing punch and lingering minerality.

    International Wine Cellar

    Seductively rich and round, this is also brisk and powerful. The only Roederer cuvee with a portion of lots that have undergone malolactic fermentation, this is easy to drink on the surface, while tense and floral underneath.

    Very similar to Cristal at a fraction of the price. If you want an outstanding champagne without spending a lot of money this is a great option.

    I really enjoyed this champagne. If you want a wine that you can actually show off as a genuine 'champagne', this is an affordable choice. However, if I am honest, I have tasted better cheaper sparkling wines. This wine has a nice dryness to it, and not overpowered by sweetness. It definitely falls in line as a very solid traditional sparkling wine (not surprising considering it is a Louis Roederer).

    Slightly acidic for my taste, but still a lovely champagne. Last few sips were the best.
