Beautifully composed reduction across lemon citrus, white peach, cherries and deeper, more savory notes of spice and grilled nuts; fresh and complex at once. The palate's assertively flavored, yet runs on a smooth and fine textural thread. Acidity is paramount, redder fruits hold court here. Great balance and depth. Drink now. - Nick Stock

A vivacious Champagne, finely knit and elegant overall. This is creamy and satiny in texture, with layers of yellow plum, chalk, toast, glazed apricot and lemon curd. Offers a lingering, smoketinged finish. Drink now... A vivacious Champagne, finely knit and elegant overall.

To judge by the cork, this bottling has some age, giving it a toasty as well as fruity character that adds complexity to this baked-apple and citrus-flavored wine. It also means that it needs no further aging and is delicious to drink now.

The new release of Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier is from a base wine of 2008, with fully half of the blend having undergone malolactic fermentation, which is the most for this bottling in quite some time (though the cuvée based on the 2013 vintage will also be a fifty percent malo wine, but that will not be out for four more years or so). The cépages this year is forty percent pinot noir, forty percent chardonnay and twenty percent pinot meunier. The bouquet is deep and classy, wafting from the glass in a blend of apple, orange peel, fresh-baked bread, a complex base of soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and minerally in personality, with a fine core, crisp acids, lovely mousse and fine length and grip on the complex finish. Really a lovely version of Brut Premier, which will be easy to spot on the market, as this is the first one with the new label. 2014-2025+.

Spice- and mineral-accented orchard and pit fruits on the intensely perfumed nose, with hints of toasty lees and brioche adding complexity. Sappy, penetrating and floral on the palate, offering juicy Meyer lemon, pear and melon flavors braced by a smoky mineral underpinning. Closes spicy and very long, leaving a sexy honeysuckle note behind. -- Josh Raynolds

A plump rich take on the Roederer style this is the pretty blond Parisian who manages a smile when you pass by: a little pithy a little smoky a little tangy with the scent of candied roses. The wine's sweetness and acidity balance each other out leaving a clean impression. A great start to a dinner party.
