"Firm acidity and a zesty bead create a snappy frame for the flavors of ripe cherry, honeysuckle and smoke in this lively, accessible Champagne. Drink now." -AN, 7/31/19

"Roederer's nonvintage cuvÃ©e is ripe and bright. The acidity and clean white-fruit flavors show strongly, allied to a tangy texture. It is a little drier than previous bottlings, a product of the ripe fruit that needed less dosage. Drink now." -RV, 12/1/18
