Over the centuries, the house of Moet & Chandon became the largest vineyard owner in Champagne and now controls over 37,000 acres. With access to such an abundance of vines, the decision was made to create a wine from the best fruit that a vintage could produce, hence the Grand Vintage Brut was born. ✦ Moet & Chandon Grand v intage Brut Champagne 2006 WS 94 » $79 "Sleek acidity trims the sails of this otherwise rich and expansive Champagne, keeping it finely balanced and racy throughout." (1801015) c onsis T en T ly o u T s T anding T he concept of Brut Premier was developed after the First World War, when more than half of the Roederer's estate vineyards were destroyed. The idea was to search for the best fruit throughout the region and create a multi- vintage wine that they could be proud of while rebuilding the company's holdings. The success of Brut Premier has kept this bottling alive. Produced from estate and sourced fruit, yet through rigorous process, Brut Premier is one of the most consistently outstanding examples of Non-Vintage Brut year after year. ✦ Louis Roederer Champagne Brut Premier N v WS 91 » $49 "This is one of the finest recent releases of Brut Premier that I can recall for the cellar, as this has the balance and spine of acidity to age long and very gracefully!"
