Louis Roederer Brut Nature 2006 Champagne

More vintages: 2009Louis Roederer, the largest independent, family-managed champagne maker is the fortunate proprietor to 235 hectares of sublimely located vineyards, supplying 70% of its needs for an annual production of 3 million bottles. Uniquely, after 10 years of experimentation, they are beginning to witness the benefits of a biodynamically managed vineyard. Chef de Cave, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon is particular about Louis Roederer's craft; "We don't blend, we combine," he says. "I love art, and like a great painter we add colour rather than blending."

The story of Brut Nature began in 2003, an exceptionally sunny year that revealed for the first time that certain vineyards in the heart of the hillsides on the Louis Roederer estate had remarkable potential. The soil clay hillsides of Cumières, Hautvillers, and Vertus had no difficulty in resisting the heat and drought in the summer of 2003 and produced intense and balanced grapes. Moderate yields, a quick harvest and less racking due to the hot temperatures, combined with fermentation in wooden casks and the resulting wines displayed incredible freshness. This prompted Roederer to carry out a series of bottling trials, fine-tuning the wines in 2003, 2004 and 2005, culminating in the selection of the 2006 vintage. The Cumières terroir produces intense Pinot Noir with great venosity and because of the exceptional maturity, no dosage was added to this cuvée. The collaboration between Frédéric Rouzaud and French designer, Philippe Starck, encouraged the Louis Roederer team to be innovative, leading to the creative design of the bottle's label.

On the nose, Brut Nature 2006 has fruity aromas of pear and citrus. On the palate it really shines, bursting with a rich array of flavours, youthful energy and a delightfully creamy texture. It's a wine that will benefit from decanting, gaining depth and roundness and really displaying the dry cider apple and red fruit flavours.

“The new Roederer cuvée is all about bold, bright, transparent Cumières Pinot Noir expression. Generous, plush Pinot nose with beautiful purity of fruit and creamy complexity. Voluptuous, muscular palate with soft, balanced acidity. It takes its brut nature extremity very well even if we are missing here the hallmark Roederer sweet and sour playfulness.”

“Light, green-tinged gold. Vibrant and focused on the nose, displaying scents of fresh citrus fruits, anise, dusty minerals and white flowers. Fleshy and dry, boasting excellent depth and focus to its bitter lemon zest and pear skin flavors deepened by a hint of sweet butter. Shows a nervy, stony quality on the finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity and subtle florality. This is the first new bottling for Roederer since the launch of Cristal Rose in 1974. French designer Philippe Starck was heavily involved in the blending of the wine as well as responsible for the packaging.”

“Philippe Stark and Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon collaborated on the concept and philosophy behind this wine, a blend of three parcels on what Lécaillon calls a "single coteau" in the deep, cold clay soils of Cumières. He harvested all the grapes together, at the optimal moment for pinot noir when the meunier was a bit overripe and the chardonnay less than perfectly ripe, crushing and co-fermenting them (half the lot in large oak vats, half in stainless steel), eventually bottling the wine with low pressure (4.5 kilos of pressure rather than the typical six). It's a wine that needs decanting, gaining depth and roundness as it opens from extremely dry cider apple and barely ripe nectarine to red fruit flavors, roses and vanilla bean. The texture is what Lécaillon believes ties this wine to Roederer's style; here, that texture seems to me to fall somewhere between the cottony abrasion of chalk and a mouthwatering, cloud-like mist.”

“Sleek and minerally, this firm Champagne is softened by a swathe of silky texture, offering a tapestry of persimmon, pear, chalk and lemon zest flavors, with rich hints of pastry and chopped almond. Graceful and ethereal, this features a lasting saline impression that echoes on the finish. Drink now through 2026.”

“Savoury, dry nose and very uncompromisingly dry on the palate. Quite a test! Just a little austere on the palate. But impressive persistence. Perhaps this is just too young? Very serious and well intentioned…”

“A delicious collaboration with France's guru designer of cool, this goes against the grain of Louis Roederer and has no dosage, making it very dry. It's dense and powerful with layers of fruit. It's also full and almost spicy with a long and powerful finish. Soft texture too. If you closed your eyes, it tastes like a red. Starck actually was involved with the blend; he says it's so good you almost don't need a bottle. But the bottle makes it. A blend of two-thirds pinot noir and one-third chardonnay. No malo. Drink now.”

“After much anticipation, the 2006 Brut Nature makes its debut with a bang. All of the classic Roederer signatures are in place, especially in its utterly beguiling, expressive bouquet. Hints of lemon peel, pastry, wild flowers and Chamomile linger on the pointed, crystalline finish. The Brut Nature emerges from estate-owned parcels in Cumieres and Hautvillers, so it is a unique blend, totally different from any of the other wines in the range. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon plans to make the Brut Nature only in vintages that give him the natural ripeness he is looking for. The blend is 60% Cumieres Pinot Noir and 40% Hautvillers Chardonnay.”
