TP 100 points - (70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay; all estate fruit and no malolactic fermentation, as is usual here; 11 g/l dosage): Light, bright yellow-gold. Potent, smoke-tinged citrus and orchard fruit aromas show very good clarity and an overlay of zesty minerals. Taut and sharply focused, offering Meyer lemon, orange and pear flavors and a hint of anise. Fleshier on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and repeating smokiness. Very approachable, in the style of the vintage, but balanced to reward some cellaring. One-third of this wine was aged in oak.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Mouthwatering, with a creamy mousse and a tangy palate of ripe blackberry, lemon parfait, apricot and biscuit, underscored by a thread of smoky mineral. Drink now through 2027.-A.N.
Pale golden in color, the Roederer 2007 Vintage Brut offers a classic and highly elegant as well as intense and complex bouquet of tea, fruit and floral aromas indicating freshly cracked wheat grain, malt, ripe and slightly cooked apples, lime peels, quince, oranges and roasted almonds. The palate is pure, fresh, mineral, highly elegant, very vinous, complex and persistent. The aging potential is excellent here.
While 2007 was not the greatest vintage, Roederer managed to produce one of the best wines of the year. It is a great blend of mature yellow fruits, with a pure line of tangy orange zest. Tightly txtured, with bright acidity and steely minerality, it promises long aging. Drink until 2025, and possibly longer. - Cellar Selection

"Impeccably refined and elegant, with floral aromas of fresh bri- oche, baked apple and roasted hazelnut. The flavors are layered and well-focused, showing notes of mineral, fresh ginger and subtle raspberry."
