2007 Louis Roederer Brut Champagne (1.5L)

SKU #1196643 96 points Wine Enthusiast

 ***Top Cellar Selections of 2013*** While 2007 was not the greatest vintage, Roederer managed to produce one of the best wines of the year. It is a great blend of mature yellow fruits, with a pure line of tangy orange zest. Tightly txtured, with bright acidity and steely minerality, it promises long aging. Drink until 2025, and possibly longer. (RV)  (12/2013)

95 points Wine & Spirits

 Roederer’s exceptional farming comes through in 2007, ripening the fruit for this wine toward yellow apple, feeling fresh and persistent with a luscious, creamy intensity. Notes of cedar and linden add to the wine’s perfume, but it’s mostly about the grounded connection to the soil. Complete and complex, this may not be a long ager, but it’s a pretty great 2007.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Pale golden in color, the Roederer 2007 Vintage Brut offers a classic and highly elegant as well as intense and complex bouquet of tea, fruit and floral aromas indicating freshly cracked wheat grain, malt, ripe and slightly cooked apples, lime peels, quince, oranges and roasted almonds. The palate is pure, fresh, mineral, highly elegant, very vinous, complex and persistent. The aging potential is excellent here. (SR)  (11/2014)

92 points Vinous

 Light, bright yellow-gold. Potent, smoke-tinged citrus and orchard fruit aromas show very good clarity and an overlay of zesty minerals. Taut and sharply focused, offering Meyer lemon, orange and pear flavors and a hint of anise. Fleshier on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and repeating smokiness. Very approachable, in the style of the vintage, but balanced to reward some cellaring. One-third of this wine was aged in oak. (JR)  (12/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

 A mouthwatering version, with a creamy mousse and a tangy palate of ripe blackberry, lemon parfait, poached apricot and biscuit, underscored by a thread of smoky mineral and ground spice. Shows beautiful balance. Drink now through 2027. (AN)  (8/2015)

France

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
