• Based on the 2015 vintage, complemented by 25% reserve wines, the latest rendition of Laurent Roederer’s NV Brut Premier is showing nicely, opening in the glass with aromas of crisp yellow orchard fruit, Anjou pear, white peach, pastry cream, and subtle hints of freshly baked bread.
• Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and complete, with a delicate pinpoint mousse, ripe but racy acids, and exquisite balance, this is a beautiful Brut Premier that will age in style; indeed, it will be even better with some bottle age. This is among the finest examples in its category and comes warmly recommended.
