Louis Roederer, Brut Premier NV Champagne
Varietal ❀ Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunie
Louis Roederer has been known as one of the great Champagne houses for a long time. This bottling was created after half their estate was destroyed in WWI as their first multi-vintage release to ensure continuity. Since then it has defined its house style and with a higher proportion of reserve wine, out punches some other houses' vintage offerings. It presents everything a "classic" champagne should - fresh fruit up front, followed by yeasty, bready notes and a lean, zesty finish.
