Roederer makes so many Champagnes that some of the wines can get lost in the shuffle. The Brut Premier is one of my go-to, widely available, affordable Champagnes. And then there are Cristal and Cristal Rosé, which are typically off the charts great. But for some reason I rarely drink the wines in the middle of the range.
The 2002 Vintage is fabulous. Time has softened some of the wine's youthful exuberance. The mousse alone has a regal beauty and finesse that is captivating. But what really strikes me is how fresh and nuanced the 2002 is. The 2002 Vintage will drink well for many more years, and, possibly decades. Today, it is ravishingly beautiful. Happy Holidays!

2000 Vintage. There was one survivor...a magnum left over from a family wedding in 2011. Delicious in every way, toasty, biscuity and balanced. Funny, I thought I drank all of this at the wedding myself...

Nutty caramel. Great acidity....like royal style. A little more oak, more gastronomic, ultimate food champagne, very complex and dynamic. Very long finish that waters the mouth.

My kind of bubbles. Yeasty, toasty, creamy, SUCH a right and focused mousse. The Signature Louis Roederer acidity lifts this wine to a degree where it almost has no weight it TONS of complexity. I should be able to drink this everyday. For free. By law.
