Book and Booze Reviews: Louis Roederer Brut Premier

I can't lie, I have no idea how to review champagne.

I can do wine, I can tell you how to make your own coffee liqueur, I can even talk vodkas, but champers? I'm clued out.

I can tell you, however, that this champagne is delish. I received a bottle as one of the three (six?) birthday presents from my parents, and we decided to have some on Memorial Day as a pre-dinner cocktail. And by "some," I mean that we drank the whole bottle.

How could we not? Being Memorial Day, it was warm and humid, and we needed something refreshing to cool us down. This hit the spot--the bubbly was dry and crisp, with hints of apple. (And maybe pear?) I suppose that the producer of Cristal won't get it wrong.

The Brut Premier is a multi-vintage champagne upon which Louis Roederer built his empire. It's the flagship wine for the company and remains their best-selling and most popular product. It's in Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines for 2009 and earned 91 points from Wine Enthusiast. As for me?

I give it: 5 out of 5 bottles (i.e. go buy it with a quickness)
