James Suckling
This has a core of fresh, extremely fleshy and attractive peaches and lemons from a ripe year. The delicacy and purity of this Champagne is stunning, as is its gently powerful nature. Such great purity here. In great form! Drink now.

Wine Spectator
This vibrant version is finely knit and elegant, with floral, toast and smoke aromas on the nose and flavors of crème de cassis and lemon curd riding the lacy mousse.

Wilfred Wong
The Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne typifies the best in the non-vintage brut category—fresh core fruit aromas, elegant textures, apple/citrus flavors, and a lively crispness in the finish. Serve now with a dozen raw oysters. (Tasted: October 10, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine & Spirits
Balanced in a rich style, this yields flavors of lemon meringue over zesty orange-pith acidity. It’s round and smooth, a wine with direction that gently carries you along with it.

What is Champagne?

All sparkling wine is Champagne, but not all sparkling wine is Champagne. Sparkling wine comes in a variety of flavors. Champagne, prosecco, cava, and sparkling wine made in the United States are the most popular.

Champagne is only allowed to be named Champagne if it is produced in the Champagne area in northern France. Chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier are used to make a classic Champagne or sparkling wine from the United States. The term "blanc de blancs" refers to a Champagne or sparkling wine composed entirely of chardonnay. If you see "blanc de noirs" on a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine from the United States, that means it's made entirely of pinot noir.

The sparkling wine of Italy is Prosecco. Prosecco or glera grapes are used to make it. Spain's effervescent wine is known as Cava. Macabeu, parellada, and xarello grapes are commonly used to make it.

Champagne is prepared from a blend of grapes, most commonly chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier, though additional grapes are permitted. The grapes may be cultivated in a few different places throughout France, and they flourish in a variety of soil and weather conditions. While many wines stress "terroir," or the traits imparted by the vineyard, champagne is unique. The champagne house is the focus, since it masterfully combines several varietals to produce a consistent, balanced beverage.

The wine undergoes a further fermentation process within the bottle to produce champagne's distinctive bubbles. Many champagnes are still aged in caves, and they are rotated on a regular basis. The sparkling wine must be aged for at least 15 months, while many are aged for three or more years.

Champagne is frequently served as a toasting wine or in cocktails, but it also goes well with a variety of dishes. With sophisticated appetizers like oysters and blinis, or simpler snacks like deviled eggs and shrimp cocktail, serve a dry bottle. White pizza and fried chicken go well together, as do light fish and chicken dishes. Sweet champagnes pair well with fresh berries and soft cheeses towards the end of a meal.

Although the champagne flute is a beautiful vessel, many experts believe it is an ineffective manner of serving the bubbly. If you're pouring and drinking right away, a white wine glass is excellent for letting the scents to fully open. A sophisticated coup glass is also a fantastic choice.

About the Producer: Louis Roederer

Louis Roederer is a champagne establishment in Reims best known for its flagship Cristal wine. The house, founded in the late 18th century, is still family owned, with an equal number of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a small amount of Pinot Meunier. Although the house was founded in 1776, it is now famous. it began in 1833, when Louis Roederer placed the reins in his uncle's hands and renamed the business for himself. Roderer intended to conquer foreign markets, mainly Russian ones; Röderer became the favorite wine of the Russian royal family. Crystal was created for the infamous paranoid Russian Tsar Alexander II, who called for the bottle to be transparent and flat-bottomed to avoid hidden explosives. Louis Roederer purchased several grand cru vineyards in Champagne in 1845 to add to his portfolio. This was unusual at the time, as most winemakers bought grapes rather than growing them themselves. Roderer had a better understanding of the intricacies of his vines and grapes and how best to use them; For Roderer, good wine depended on the soil and traditions of the house that created it. Today, Roderer vineyards cover nearly 240 hectares (600 acres) of land in Montagne de Reims, Valle de la Marne and Côte de Blanc. ... In 2012, about 25% of the vineyards were managed biodynamically. Roederer's portfolio includes vintage and non-vintage brut, rosé and blanc-de-blanc, and vintage crystal. More recently, the house partnered with French designer Philippe Starck to create Brut Nature champagne.
