A pricey celebration wine that is often used to illustrate an expensive and lavish lifestyle of conspicuous consumption by the mainstream but in actuality considered an excellent champagne by experienced tasters.
Ironically, it is now vocally outcasted by the same hip-hop artists that popularized the wine to mainstream urban culture as a result of recent comments made by the company's new managing director.
Also compared with other expensive Champagnes such as Dom Perignon, and Krug.
Characterized by its uniquely clear bottle and celophane wrapper.
An excellent candidate as a Veblen good.

Brut Premier, the company's flagship multi-vintage Champagne, is a distinctive, elegant wine that epitomizes the House style of complexity, depth of flavor and long finish. Roederer is also esteemed for its Brut Vintage, Blanc de Blancs, and Brut Rosé Champagnes.
Distinctive for its ginger and nut elements, this rosé offers complex citrus and biscuit tones on a solid yet very accessible structure. Vinous in character, it has a lovely, lingering finish.
