One of the best quality champagnes, yellow gold in colour, intense and refined it has notes of apricot, hazelnut and Danish pastries, exquisite Chardonnay fruit shines through, very elegant.
It's a champagne for the ultimate celebration, also perfect with white fish such as monkfish, and white meats. The flagship cuvee for Champagne Roederer that is much loved by the party crowd and partially a victim of its own success in that it is drunk so soon after release, it will really improve with three to five years additional cellaring. Very limited quantities available.
"Tense and lifted on the nose. So very different from the vintage: much more finesse. Racy and elegant. Masses of acidity and tension. Lighter in texture than the vintage. A racy thoroughbred. So refined but very youthful." Jancis Robinson 19/20
