Louis Roederer Brut Nature 2009 Champagne

More vintages: 2006Louis 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. Vintage 2009 is the second production of Brut Nature by Louis Roederer.

A continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. The health and growth of the grapes was exceptional, producing a quality wine.

On the nose, an abundance of sweet flowers and yellow fruits such as peaches and small hints of nuttiness. On the palate a light and creamy taste combines with more pear and hints of citrus. The freshness is from the youthful nature of the champagne but flavours are already nicely balanced.

Grape Varieties: 66% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay
Dosage: 0 g/L

Louis Roederer Brut Nature
Dec 2016
“The 2009 Brut Nature is only the second release for this wine (the first was the 2006). Powerful, rich and impeccably layered, the 2009 possesses remarkable depth and all of the pedigree of these vineyards in Cumières. Apricot, brioche, dried flowers and chamomile take on striking shades of translucence in this beautifully expressive Champagne. The radiance and ripeness of the vintage gave Roederer the ideal conditions to make a Champagne with no dosage, and here it is, in all of its splendor. Roederer has made the decision to price this wine very modestly in Champagne terms. I can't imagine that is going to last too long. To be sure, the Brut Nature style might come as a bit of a shock to readers used to the Roederer house palate, but the wine is magnificent. It's as simple as that.”
