A Night with Louis Roederer Champagne @ Bacchus Wine Cellar

This past week I enjoyed two delightful Louis Roderer Champagnes at Bacchus Wine Cellar in Georgetown (1635 Wisconsin Ave NW).

Louis Roederer is a champagne producer based in Reims, France. The house was founded in 1776 and was inherited and renamed by Louis Roeder in 1833. One of the many selections at Bacchus we had the luxury of tasting included Louis Roederer Brut Premiere Champagne and Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne 2002 (pictured below).

Bacchus Wine Cellar has reigned over Georgetown for nine years as the premier wine store selling the most unique and hard to find vintages from across the globe. Their wine experts will not only answer every question you have about selecting the perfect wine, but I was able to tell them exactly what types wine I usually enjoy (Tempranillo, Garnacha, Malbec, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Nero d' Avola) and they recommended a new grape, Montalcino, that I can't wait to touch my tongue.

Visit Bacchus this week or brave the snow so you can sneak back home and snuggle up to a bottle tonight.
