Crystalline in its bright acidity and minerality this no-dosage wine frames wonderfully ripe fruit with hints of wild raspberry, lemon, green apple, golden apple, flint, wet stone, hay, and acacia. The mousse is well-developed and creamy; It tastes so fresh and youthful it only betrays its age with a few tertiary notes of brioch, beeswax and a subtle note of hazelnut. Elegant, vibrant and beautiful with grilled shrimp and on its own. — 4 months ago
Celebrating my DBU paper. Tasted of apple at first, settled into a similar experience as Louis Roederer. — 3 years ago
Pale gold with a constant stream of tiny, active bubbles. The nose is customarily stately and quite pretty with an abundance of apples at first whiff. A bit of lemon and biscuits come to play along with pears. The nose definitely matures in the glass over time revealing more chalk and stone as times goes on.
The new cuvée from Louis Roederer that focuses on individuality from one year to the next. A brand new blend based on the 2017 vintage alongside a perpetual reserve and reserve wines. 42/36/22 PN/CH/PM with a moderate dosage of 8 g/l. This is certainly a more baronial champagne but there is a bit of unexpected zest here as well. A wine that takes a bit of time, and probably years, to fully come alive and strut her stuff but it’s drinking quite well right now.
The palate features a burst of clean citrus fruit initially. Followed by a nice backbone of thankfully understated oak. Baked bread and Granny Smith apples with a touch of cinnamon. Something new from an old house and done in style. These are truly fun.

Mimi had this in London at Quaglino’s Restaurant restaurant on Christmas Eve. She said it was the best champagne she had ever drunk – except for the Roederer at McNulty party.￼ — 3 years ago
