Champagne Louis Roederer, makers of Cristal Vintage Champagne, is one of the region's most prestigious houses. Roederer was founded in 1776 in the town of Reims in Champagne and is still an independent family business. Composed of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, 30% of which is wine matured in oak tuns without malolactic fermentation, Brut Vintage is aged, on average, for 4 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity. The palate is characteristic of Louis Roederer’s vintages: the attack is ample and dense; a rich and winey fullness is refined by the sweetness, acidity and tight blend of the Pinot Noir grapes of Verzenay. The ensemble is perfectly integrated into a subtle texture. Tasting reveals sparkling suggestions of candied fruits, almond paste, toast, white chocolate, and caramel.

Wine EnthusiastThis rich wine is full of ripe white and citrus fruits that combine easily with the tangy, tight texture that comes from the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It is still young, the sort of wine that needs to age to bring out its full potential. Drink this very fine vintage from 2018.

Wine SpectatorThis elegant Champagne is bright, with well-cut acidity married to a fine and creamy mousse and flavors of currant, toast, smoke-tinged mineral, white cherry and mandarin orange peel, followed by a fresh, lingering finish. Drink now through 2027. 226 cases imported.
