Champagne: Louis Roederer Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
What and Where: The impeccably turned-out and understated parent of Cristal. Family-owned and run, its vineyards provide two-thirds of the grapes it needs, which is reflected in consistently high-quality champagnes.
What does it taste like? Pure and fine-boned, with the deep, biscuity flavours of careful maturation. Dominated by Pinot Noir Grapes.
Who drinks it? Wine enthusiasts (every wine writer I've ever come across) and cultured, intellectual types. John Rocha is a devotee.
