Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV, Champagne, France
PRESS: Wine Spectator: 92 points. "An elegant Champagne in an aperitif style, with flavors of crushed blackberry, biscuit, spring blossom and Meyer lemon zest riding the finely detailed bead, underscored by a streak of salinity that emerges on the fresh finish."
Wine Enthusiast, Wine & Spirits, James Suckling - 92 points.

Food Suggestion: Very versatile, can go with white meat, fish and Shellfish, can complement citrus, butter nut and earthy notes in food
From the outset, 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 finesse, and 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.
