Louis Roederer Brut Premier
from Champagne, France
#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.
"Firm and finely meshed, with hints of passion fruit and pineapple mixing with poached apple, almond pastry and fleur de sel. Mouthwatering and lightly smoky on the lingering, refined finish."
"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
"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."

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.
