The most delicious champagne from Louis Roederer, their Grand Cru, is made with grapes sourced from their best vineyards and only produced in exceptional years.

Worth every cent!
This blend of 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay with over 8.5 years on lees (alledgedly longer than any Cristal ever) has a nose of fresh apple, fennel and cucumber and is very refreshing on the palate with scents of honeysuckle, almond and vanilla. Not cheap, but worth every cent!
