Critical Acclaim

WE91 Wine Enthusiast 12/1/1993

"Fairly sweet for a brut, but extremely well-balanced. Rich, full-bodied, fruity flavors; quite delicious." (91 pts.)

SP89 Wine Spectator Nov 30, 1995

"Harmonious and elegant in style, sporting lots of vibrant fruit flavor and just enough doughy, toasty nuances to make it intriguing. Has everything in just the right proportions, including a lingering finish." (89 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 21st Dec 2009

"The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous Champagne at this level. Fresh, perfumed, zesty fruit emerges from this accessible, medium-bodied Champagne. The Brut Premier reveals an irresistible, immediate personality, with terrific balance. It is without question one of the finest NV Champagnes readers are likely to come across as well as one of the best relative values in the region. The Brut Premier is 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier. The Meunier and 10–30% reserve wines along with fruit sourced from mostly south-facing vineyards (40–45% purchased fruit) are all used to create a fairly round, accessible Champagne that can be enjoyed upon release. This is Lot L031404A102195, disgorged in June, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2012." (89 pts.)

WS88 Wine & Spirits December 1, 1997

"One of the best of the non-vintage bruts we tasted this year, Roederer’s Brut Premier is youthful and bright, its full flavors of citrus and almond paste set against a fine acid balance. That balance is most evident in the long finish, where the lively acidity carries the sweetness of roasted nuts and cool fruit." (88 pts.)

BTI86 Beverage Testing Institute April 1, 2001

"Rich golden hue. Toasty, tart tropical aromas show a heavy Pinot influence. Tart on the attack, with a medium body and a quick, citrusy finish." (86 pts.)

Champagne

Bring on the bubbly! Perhaps no other wine region in the world has the name recognition of Champagne, to the point where people often mistakenly use the word "Champagne" to describe any sparkling wine. Yet only wines produced within the region can legally be called "Champagne," and to this day it produces some of the finest sparkling wines known to earth.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
