Louis Roederer Brut Vintage
Description & Technical Information
-
Fascinated by the aromatic diversity of Pinot Noir in Champagne, Louis Roederer use the structure and power of the Pinot Noir grapes from the Montagne de Reims to create their Brut Vintage blend. Exposed to the north-east, these grapes mature much more slowly, producing wines that are sometimes rough and closed at the beginning of the ageing process, with a character that intensifies and becomes more refined through ageing in wood over long periods. Thirty percent of the wine is matured in oak casks and Brut Vintage is matured for at least four years in the cellars and rested for six months after disgorgement to attain optimal maturity. It is the Pinot Noirs from the Grand Cru rated village of Verzenay in particular that give this champagnes its velvety, creamy and elegant palate.

Weather: The 2004 vintage saw an initial winter of mild temperatures with intermittent storms and hail. The spring and summer months were hot and sunny and the sugar levels late in September produced good quality fruits, especially for the Pinot Noir grapes. A huge harvest in general for the region. Overall many experts believe that 2004 is one of the greatest vintages of the last two decades.

Tasting Note: The palate is characteristic of a Louis Roederer vintage: a rich fullness is refined by the sweetness, acidity and tight blend of the Pinot Noir grapes of Verzenay. Tasting reveals notes of candied fruits, almond paste, white chocolate and caramel. This is a classic Brut: all the traditional flavours of champagne expressed with a refinement and precision that is quintessentially Roederer. We bought this parcel to show Louis Roederer Brut Vintage at its very best - when it is at least 10 years old and just starting to show the grace and forward fruit elegance from the great 2004 vintage.
