Description

An intense bouquet of golden plum and tangy mango, candied lemon, flowers (mimosa) and buttery pastries. A light aeration reveals hints of sugared almonds (ground almonds), white chocolate with a slight vanilla edge and baked apples. The expectation is for a substantial and voluminous follow-up - but instead the initial intensity subsides revealing the precision, purity and chalky, mineral freshness of the grand Avize Chardonnays.

94 Points Wine Enthusiast - 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.

92 Points 
Wine Spectator - 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.

91 Points 
Wine & Spirits - While the 2010 Rosé transcends the challenges of the vintage, this Blanc de Blancs seems to absorb them into flavor details. The core of the wine is fresh, with depths of chardonnay spice. Surrounding that, you might find notes of apple cider, hints of huitlacoche or toasted sourdough bread. It’s a fascinating take on chardonnay, needing cellar time to integrate its flavors into complexity.
