Back Up the Truck-Champagne Edition: Roederer Brut Premier

Back Up The Truck
- Champagne Edition
Roederer Brut Premier NV

"A Cristal-like Champagne with outstanding finesse."
-Richard Juhlin

The great Champagne writer Richard Juhlin wasn’t exaggerating: Roederer Brut Premier is widely regarded to be one of the best non-vintage Champagnes coming out of the region.

It is also one of the best values, especially considering the prestige of the great Roederer house - yes, that Roederer, of Cristal fame.

In the midst of this season of frazzled madness - er, I mean, cheer - one-stop shopping bottles like this one are a rare and wonderful thing - and why this is most definitely a "Back Up the Truck" offer.

Roederer's Brut Premier NV is undoubtedly our go-to under-$50 Champagne.

The Brut Premier thrives on elegance, offering crisp fruits and all the power and length that garner Roederer so much renown. There’s a noble presence on the palate that is reminiscent of the covet-worthy Cristal. Brut Premier packs a strikingly similar finesse. The wine is forward and fresh but with a sophisticated richness, a token to the significant percentage of barrel-aged reserve wines that goes into the final blend.

This is the ideal "house Champagne." For this reason, we're offering special 6-pack pricing, so you can have this around in quantity. It's also one of the non-vintage Champagnes that has the structure to age well. With some time in the cellar, the fresh fruit gives way to a lush texture and luxurious overtones of caramel and cream; bottles stocked up now will keep giving back for many seasons to come.

In the past, we've sold out on this offer way more quickly than anticipated. Though really, we shouldn't have been surprised at the overwhelmingly positive response: At this value, you can consider all your gifting and revelry needs filled, and impressively so, and still cellar away a few for yourself. You deserve it.
