By chance we noticed how dear Santa Claus was standing at your door this morning and wanted to pour the champagne into his boots – fortunately we were able to convince him that we could understand a little more about the delivery of such delicacies. Now Nikolaus dedicates himself entirely to the children, and we will surprise you with the legendary champagne Louis Roederer Brut Premier.
Nothing helps us to become happier and more cheerful than this wonderfully sparkling refreshment with its fruity freshness and lively acidity. And when we sing “tralalalalala” in a convivial circle, our easy-going, light-hearted joie de vivre is perfectly compatible with the “noble” origin and elegant elegance of this stylish work of art. As soon as we kiss the glass, every noble-born distance is bridged and it remains pure fun in the glass.
Champion of the champagne!
That’s when we realize that it won’t take long until New Year’s Eve – and sparkling fun in the glass is the ideal fuel for a good slide. As the old year evaporates, delicate and spicy aromas of peach, apple, grapefruit and brioche take over. On the palate we experience ripe fruit fullness with a flattering structure. A year like this must start well!
We wonder what this champagne has to offer in large numbers: fine pearls and bubbles – or high awards and ratings from all the world’s wine gurus. Probably the latter. Without claiming to be complete, here is a small parade of the stars:
Falstaff: 93 points, Decanter: Best sparkling Wine, Decanter World Wine Awards: Gold! Best in show, Winegrowing: Champagne of the Year, Picture on Sunday: Grade 1 “A champagne as it should be.”The Wine Advocate: 92 points, Wine Spectator: 92 points, Mundus Vini: Gold, Wine & Spirits: 92 points, Der Feinschmecker: Best vintageless champagne, Huon Hooke: 93 points, Jamie Goode: 92 points, Robert Parker: 92 points, Vinum extra Champagne: 16 points, Wine enthusiast: 92 points, La Revue du Vin de France: 15.5 points “Hermès der Champagne”, Wine World 2014:91 points
As the patron saint of seafarers, carters and travellers also responsible for a good slide (“slide” = “journey”), St. Nicholas strongly recommends that you think about New Year’s Eve today. Especially since he also has the patronage for the merchants and thus a nose for clever bargains. Oh yes, and the coopers (manufacturers of wine barrels) he also looks after… The man can multitasking!
