Reminiscent of a great Puligny with bubbles! A selection of four early ripening parcels from Avize. Very expressive flesh and weight, followed by an assertive core of deep set fruit. Toasty hazelnuts and autolysis warmth across lemon, grapefruit and nectarine. The palate has a smooth, playfully tart yet ripe feel. A very seductive, caressing finish. Drink now.
This latest Blanc de Blancs vintage from Roederer is well poised and balanced, already offering a hint of toast, while the minerality is prominent. It is in a dry style, relying on the ripe fruit to soften the impact of the acidity. A beautiful wine, ready to drink. (RV)
This Chardonnay is almost pink in its bold, peachy roundness of flavor, its juicy pear and golden-apple freshness deepened by a hint of peach-pit savor. Its delicate honeysuckle and saffron notes, scents of lemon pith and raw almond build into the finish, which one panelist described as tasting 'like an amazing almond pastry.' Roederer’s 2010s have stamina and length; this Blanc de Blancs continues to integrate with bottle age.
The 2010 Louis Roederer Blanc de Blanc Brut Vintage is a lovely example of its year. Twenty percent of the vins clairs were barrel-fermented this year, with the wines not undergoing malolactic fermentation. After bottling, the wine spent five years aging sur latte prior to disgorgement and a finishing dosage of nine grams per liter, with the pressure in the bottle a bit lower than the other vintage-dated wines from the maison. The bouquet of the 2010 delivers a very refined aromatic constellation of apple, a touch of tangerine, fresh-baked bread, complex, limestone soil tones, a touch of almond, white flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a good core, fine focus and grip, frothy mousse and a very long, brisk and well-balanced finish. At age seven, this is just starting to blossom, but I would suggest tucking it away for another three or four years in the cellar and allow its secondary layers of complexity to emerge.

An overachiever in this range, the 2010 Brut Blanc de Blancs is terrific. Green apple, mint, white flowers and mineral-driven notes give the 2010 freshness vivacity and lift. The Blanc de Blancs is one of the hidden gems in the Roederer lineup and does not seem to get much attention. That is a shame, as it is a first class wine all the way. (AG)
A mouthwatering Champagne that's well-meshed and elegant, setting expressive notes of golden raisin, pineapple pâte de fruit, slivered almond and pickled ginger on a finely detailed, satiny texture. Smoky finish. Drink now through 2026. (AN)
