Louis Roederer Brut Vintage 2009:
£61.23 £45.95 Amazon
From the famed Champagne house best known for it’s top cuvee Cristal – the 2009 vintage was a warm year resulting in a rich Champagne. 70% Pinot Noir 30% Chardonnay, this is still a little young. The acidity will soften over the next couple of years. One to snap up and put aside.
£39.99 £29.99 Amazon
A third Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Mernier from this tip top Champagne house, which is part of the Vranken Pommery group. Bread, fruit, salinity and a long finish – this is a step up from your average NV.
Louis Roederer 2011 Brut Rose:
£60.00 £43.50 Amazon
Another good deal from Roederer. Again, dominated by Pinot Noir , this is also young. Pale peach in colour, with crunchy fruits and strawberry – 2011 was a good year for Champagne.
