Arguably the most reliable non-vintage champagne of them all, made by one of the very last family-owned large houses with their own grapes...Of the well-known, so-called grandes marques of champagne (no longer an official title), Bollinger, Louis Roederer, Pol Roger and Veuve Clicquot all carry a premium. But heavy Bollinger can be awkwardly angular when young, racy Pol Roger can also need a little bottle age to show its best and variable Veuve Clicquot can be downright disappointing in my view. But I have yet to experience a bottle of Louis Roederer Brut Premier that did not taste deliciously superior and ready to drink. Jancis Robinson

Louis Roederer is one of our very favourite champagne houses. This latest shipment of non-vintage is very fresh and would benefit from a few months more in bottle, but it’s still a fine introduction to the Roederer style: subtle, more-ish, smooth and long-flavoured with a lovely sherbetty-ness. Food fishy pre-dinner nibbles. Ageing drink over two years. 5 Stars * * * * * Epicure Uncorked

The true star of Roederer, and by far the cheapest, this is quintessential winter champagne. Three-fifths pinots, some old oak maturation and bottle aged for three years add honeyed richness, butterscotch, brioche and cinnamon, finessed with a cut of lemon. Rating: 94 Points; Tyson Stelzer

Meringue-like bouquet, not overtly yeasty or bready, but fresh and fruit-driven. The palate is very fine with an abundance of floral flavours; small flowers and spices galore, the palate creamy textured and finishing fairly dry with superb balance. The acidity is high, but you don't feel it. A very appetising, refreshing NV style. Rating: 94 Points; Huon Hooke

Winemaker Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon spent several years in Tasmania during the Roederer-Heemskerk joint venture days but it is Jean-Claude Rouzard who drove the business to unparalleled fame and fortune. This wine is typically a  blend of 62% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 8% pinot meunier and is noted for its rich, creamy flavours. This release has great elegance and above all, length. $90; 94 points & Halliday’s Top 100 Wines
