Simply put, this is one of the greatest Champagnes ever. The house of Louis Roederer first made this ultra-premium wine in 1876 at the behest of Roederer devotee Tsar Alexander II, bottling it in clear Baccarat crystal to distinguish it from the slightly less rarefied Roederer bubbles served to the Russian court. No longer sold in Baccarat crystal, the bottle is still clear, and shows off the alluring golden shimmer of this vintage Champagne. The 2009 growing season presented a tempestuous spring and early summer that gave way to warm and sunny conditions, resulting in this opulent, decadent wine. Heady scents of toasted nuts, grilled citrus and exotic spice prepare the palate for a wonderful intensity of creme caramel and macaron richness. Made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay all from estate grand cru vineyards, it's a sensual wine that is ready to drink now, or can cellar for a few decades more. It's also the first vintage that showcases Roederer's change to biodynamic viticulture - you can sense this in a luxuriant, silky texture that's different from other bottlings. It deserves only the finest food - caviar or steamed crab or lobster.
