2011 Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

SKU #1442528 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Four plots in Avize, a village that delivers strong character in blanc de blancs, picked later and riper. The delicate lemons and fine, chalky minerals here are impressive. Mouth-filling, vinous flesh with yellow-grapefruit and nectarine flavors. Super long, fresh and focused mineral finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This has springtime scents of meadow flowers and chanterelles, the wine’s sunny freshness infusing its richer tones of toasted brioche and crème fraîche. It’s a classic, mineral-driven blanc de blancs, with a length of flavor that feels compressed and youthfully charged. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is made from Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. The well-balanced palate is textured and mineral driven, with a crisp white-fruit flavor that comes together well. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a difficult year (no Cristal, no Vintage) with a wet summer and a harvest already in August (like 2017 and most probably also 2018), Roederer's soon-to-be-released 2011 Blanc de Blancs offers a clear, bright, fresh and very delicate and floral bouquet with almond, hazelnut and nougat aromas. Sourced entirely in Avize (toward Cramant in the north and Oger in the south), where "Chardonnay behaved quite well that year," as Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon put it. He noted that the 2011 Blanc de Blancs comes along "like a Crémant from the Loire Valley rather than a Champagne from the Côte des Blancs" due to its low pressure. Thirty percent of the cuvée was fermented in oak (in 2017, it's 32%) to give a more rich and round style of Blanc de Blancs since the characteristic salinity comes in the finish anyway. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An elegant Champagne, this is finely knit and fresh, marrying the delicate mousse and lithe acidic frame with notes of Gala apple, lemon sorbet and slivered almond, accented by hints of fleur de sel, graphite and spice. (AN) Inner quote mark (12/2018)
