Summer Champagne Steal
NV Roederer Brut Premier Champagne
BACK UP THE TRUCK for Prestige Bubbles
Roederer Brut Premier is widely acknowledged to be one of the best non-vintage Champagnes in existence - at an incredible value for high-class bubbly from the very same Roederer of Cristal fame.
Richard Juhlin, the Champagne guru, calls it "a Cristal-like Champagne of outstanding finesse."
Featured in our Holiday Catalog, the response was overwhelming. We'd sell cases, and a week later they'd be back looking for more, spouting accolades.
We sold through our massive tranche last winter way more quickly than we could have anticipated... so we went back and were able to secure another parcel at the same crazy pricing.
The Brut Premier is full of crisp, fresh orchard fruits held in tension with richer notes of dark minerals and a finishing wrap of round creaminess that bears witness to the house’s significant use of barrel-aged reserve wines in the final blend. There's a strikingly similar finesse to their prestige Cristal cuvée, along with plenty of the house’s signature freshness, elegance and power.
Champagne under $40 is a tough category, and one that we’re always asked about, so we’re thrilled that we’re able to offer such a high caliber one today - and at well below the $40 mark. Roederer manages to turn out a wine with amazing complexity that belies its very affordable price.
I've also said before, and I'll say again: The Brut Premier is a rather rare case of an affordable, non-vintage Champagne perfectly worthy of cellaring - so take some to stash away while this special pricing lasts. The wine takes on a luxurious texture in the mouth with a few years' rest, all those crisp fruits shifting into a baseline of supporting acidity as the deeper flavors move into luscious caramel and cream territory. Today represents a fantastic opportunity to stock up for the rest of the summer and beyond while pricing is as low as ever.
We should be able to confirm orders up to a case while supplies last; if you'd like more than a case, please let us know, and we'll do our best. To order, please reply to this email or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
