Alcohol By Volume: 12.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

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.

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."
91 Points

"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 Points

"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."
90 Points

"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."
90 Points

"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 Points

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.

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
