#97 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2013 -
WS 94 WA 93 IWC 93 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Refined in texture and beautifully balanced, this well-meshed version is framed by mouthwatering acidity, enlivened by flavors of yellow apple, pear, black currant, lightly toasted almond, kumquat and zesty ground spice. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases imported.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2006 Brut Vintage literally jumps from the glass with rich layers of deep, resonant fruit. A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2006 impresses for its sheer volume and size, but at the same time it retains the characteristic Roederer finesse. The elegant and sheer polish of the finish is more than enough to make it impossible to resist a second taste. This is an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous wine from Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon and his team. The 2006 is mostly Pinot from the north-facing Verzenay, which gives the wine much of its tension and sheer energy. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.
According to International Wine Cellar - Powerful but lithe, finishing with excellent thrust and lingering floral and mineral qualities. 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. 12% ABV.
