“The cuvées of the House of Louis Roederer are the fruit of patient work
with fundamental ingredients, the collaboration of experts, …
… a quest for the perfect balance, and hardy and generous grapes, cultivated in the Champagne soil, producing a wine with a summery character and crystalline elegance.“
This is one of the best Brut Champagne around that although it is a bit pricey, is worth the experience.
Its high acidity, minerality, and bubbles will complement many dishes from veggie, pasta, white meats, cheeses, and dessert.
Try Clicquot Yellow Label with seafood risotto, oyster, lobster, fish & chips, Camembert, or Saint-Honoré and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
