"This vibrant version is finely knit and elegant, with floral, toast and smoke aromas on the nose and flavors of creme de casis and lemon curd riding the lacy mousse."

"The current offering of Louis Roederer Brut Premier is an excellent wine on both the nose and palate, and though it is delicious right out of the blocks, a bit of bottle age will certainly be rewarded here. The youthfully pure bouquet jumps from the glass in a vibrant blend of apple, lemon, stony minerality, warm bread and citrus zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, young and nascently complex, with a fine core, tiny, pinpoint bubbles, brisk acids and a very long, balanced finish that shows just a whisper of leesiness from battonage. Fine, fine juice that is going to age quite well and will be even better with a year or two in the cellar to allow the wine to fully blossom. 2014-2030." (08/13)

"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. 50,000 cases imported. -AN" (Reviewed 11/13)
"The NV Brut Premier (2009 blend) is 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier, with the addition of 30% reserve wines spanning six vintages. This shows lovely balance in a rich, round style I find highly appealing. The Brut Premier looks very promising at this stage."
