JOHN GILMAN 92 POINTS-"The new  release of Louis Roederer “Brut Premier” is composed of its traditional blend of
forty percent each of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with the balance made up of Pinot Meunier. The
wine is aged three years sur latte and an additional six months in bottle after disgorgement. The
bouquet is truly superb, wafting from the glass in a precise and vibrant blend of apple, gentle
notes of tangerine, beautifully complex soil nuances, warm bread and a topnote of dried flowers.
On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and supremely elegant, with a lovely core, seamless
balance, refined mousse and outstanding length and grip on the complex and very classy finish. I
love the precise elegance of this release. This is one of the best examples of Brut Premier in
WINE SPECTATOR 91 POINTS - "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."
