The famed house of Louis Roederer has been synonymous with the world's great Champagnes since 1776. Most known for Cristal, created in 1876 to satisfy the demanding tastes of the Emperor Tsar Alexander II. We'll be pouring the new Brut 243 Collection that's been ten years in the making, and was released to huge fanfare, garnering a Wine Spectator Top 100 spot in it's premier release. Designed to be a reserve collection, to the wildly popular Brut Premier style, Roederer based 242 on the 2018 vintage (56%), supplemented by 34% reserve wines from the perpetual reserve established in 2012 and 10% foudre-aged reserve wines.

James Suckling: 94 Points

"Dried-lemon, apricot, green-apple, salted-almond, walnut and light caramel notes. Vinous and layered, with small and tight bubbles. Excellent focus and intensity." James Suckling, 94 Points

Jeb Dunnuck: 93 Points

"The NV Champagne Collection 243 Brut is the third release and is based on the 2018 vintage, with the addition of 30% of the perpetual reserve started in 2012 and 10% reserve wine that has been aged in oak. It is ripe and balanced, with yellow flowers, honeycomb, and plum, and it has elegant concentration and underlying tension, precise mousse, and rich salinity, with lingering notes of croissant and delicate smoke." Jeb Dunnuck, 93 Points

Wine Advocate: 92 Points

"Based on the 2018 vintage and complemented by reserve wines from a solera established in 2012, as well as younger foudre-aged reserve wines, Roederer's newly released NV Brut Collection 243 is a pillowy, enveloping Champagne evocative of crisp stone fruits, honeycomb, white flowers and buttery pastry. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and generous, with an ample core of fruit, bright acids and a saline finish, it will offer demonstrative drinking on release." The Wine Advocate, 92 Points

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

"A vibrant Champagne that's fine and creamy on the palate, almost plush, but bright and well-balanced throughout. Reveals a chalky base note that underscores layers of ripe pear and nectarine fruit, mandarin orange peel, oyster shell and chamomile. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. Drink now." The Wine Spectator, 92 Points
