Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Louis Roederer NV Brut - As usual this is very youthful right off the shelf, and benefits from 2-6 years in the cellar, but his has the classic slightly yeasty, apple and toasted, buttery almonds. In the mouth it was predictably tight but combined admirably weight and depth with fine balance and an acid driven, refreshing finish. 91pts
Roederer tends to fit my palate like a good, custom-made shoe. In keeping with the season, there is lots of Christmas Cake on the nose with toasty almond and more candied fruit on entry. The mousse is rich and fine with a continuous outpouring of carbonated spring bubbles long after the first pour. Finish is long and tasty with more candied fruit and a purity of flavor beyond the price. Excellent value!
Bold yet refined. Pours a slightly pale straw colour but the bubbles are fats and small and last long after the bottle has been opened. But the flavour is a powerful and very sweet, biscuit with hints of apple and nuts. One of my favourite NV Champagne's.
Creamy, elegant and gorgeous champagne. Complex layers of pear, spice, honey and vanilla in a smooth, polished style. Very refined and long, complex finish. Great option for NYE! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 12/12/09
Really nice citrus and fruity notes along with some bread and toast nuances. Bright acidity that lent a very crisp feel to the wine. The tartness of the acidity in the wine gave way to a smooth, creamy mouthfeel that persisted through the decently long finish. This wine had a nice complexity and was far from one-dimensional. I really enjoyed this Champagne and I would definitely recommend it.
Really excellent value. Very full with toasty yeast notes and a mega-long finish. I don't think there's any true Champagne that I like more at this price point.
Nice yeasty entry level champagne. Fine Mousseux and lasting Collier. Brioche and Grapefruit.
Very tart, almond, apple and biscotti.

A firm Champagne, with a finely meshed palate that layers the delicate mousse with hints of smoke and marzipan, complementing flavors of white cherry, dried apricot, salted almond and lemon preserves. Mouthwatering. Drink now through 2019.
Nutty nose. Some great savour. Bone dry and serious. Though not concentrated enough for a very long life. 17/20 Jancis Robinson.
One of the best of the non-vintage bruts we tasted this year, Roedererandrsquo;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.
A clean, red-fruited Champagne, this wine’s sweet richness of flavor makes it a pleasing aperitif.
A breeze of flavor, Roederer’s Brut Premier seems light on the surface, but the flavors make an impression that lasts. That underlying depth hints at the reserve wines in the blend, while the mild, creamy flavors of gooseberry and wheat make it a sophisticated aperitif.
Light in texture and generous in flavor offering an appealing array of pastrylike flavors backed by plenty of fruit flavor. Smooth and delicious with a lingering finish.
A classic nonvintage Champagne, Brut Premier is also a yardstick by which others are measured. In the case of this bottle, that yardstick is working well; the palate is rich and creamy, there is maturity along with great fruit and elegance. Best as an apéritif wine, this could also go with light foods.
