Louis Roederer NV

I've always liked Louis Roederer's non-vintage champagne, but this particular bottle deserved special mention because it was quite unlike the usual rather full bodied yeasty expression given by that champagne.  Instead, an aroma of apples and light toast was met with a rather outstanding mousse on the palate and citrus flavours.  Tasted blind, I thought this was almost a bit like the highly priced Veuve Clicquot La Grand Dame.  I was told that the base wine for the champagne was from the 2004 and 2005 vintages, but I was not able to verify that.  An excellent, if atypical, Louis Roederer NV champagne.  89 points.
