ROBERT PARKER 93 / 100
Founded in 1776, and property of the same family since 1819, Champagne Louis Roederer is today one of the last major champagne houses to be an independent family affair.
Bright, bright colour with citrus yellow, slightly green reflections. Fine, regular perlage with small vesicles
Exquisite and reserved on the palate. Pears and apples dominate, their aroma caramelized in contact with the air and reminiscent of baked apples, apple pie and lightly roasted hazelnuts. Its wide spectrum of aromas, reminiscent of warm stones, fine spice blends, candied citrus fruits, cedar apples, graphite and almost tobacco, is underpinned by minerality, which lends this Chardonnay its lime taste of origin. Silky opening. The fine texture, concentrated on the point, both challenges and flatters the palate, playing around it and echoing for a long time, developing a mineral and at the same time citric freshness. A wine whose shape evolves on the palate, initially very dense with notes of chocolate and finely woven tannins, whose subtle, animatingly fresh astringency prolongs the finish, revealing at the same time the clear, puristic saltiness of the best terroirs and captivating the palate with a mouthful, crystalline freshness that stimulates to enjoy again and again.
