Champagne Louis Roederer Overview
+
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: Mostly a warm year, 2007 was characterised by unexpected major weather events. A warm spring was followed by a cool summer, although the end of the ripening process was excellent, with harvests taking place in ideal conditions.

Tasting Note: The slow, regular flow of bubbles is perfectly integrated into the structure of this champagne. The bouquet is rich and heady, with a complex succession of juicy pears, light raspberry liqueur and hazelnut. The bite is an explosion of flavours and silky substance that reinforce the smooth caress of the Pinot Noir - all with an overwhelming freshness that is wholly part of the texture. This Brut Millésime 2007 is a fine expression of the measured power of Pinot Noir.

“Light, bright yellow-gold. Potent, smoke-tinged citrus and orchard fruit aromas show very good clarity and an overlay of zesty minerals. Taut and sharply focused, offering Meyer lemon, orange and pear flavors and a hint of anise. Fleshier on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and repeating smokiness. Very approachable, in the style of the vintage, but balanced to reward some cellaring. One-third of this wine was aged in oak.”

“Deep lemon colour. Really rich, overt, developing, ripe fruit nose overlaid by an impressive toasty, yeasty, spicy note. Textbook Pinot depth. Sweet, succulent, round and smooth, pleasurable palate with the smoothest mousse. A long, fresh, polished finish with a fine acid/sugar balance. Solid Gold at the 2014 CSWWC.”

“While 2007 was not the greatest vintage, Roederer managed to produce one of the best wines of the year. It is a great blend of mature yellow fruits, with a pure line of tangy orange zest. Tightly txtured, with bright acidity and steely minerality, it promises long aging. Drink until 2025, and possibly longer.”

“From Cumières. Very faint peach shade. Apple fruit, sweet spices, soft sherbet palate with very tart acidity. Autolysis just emerging, not much complexity. Beautifully sweet fruit though, and very youthful still. Even so, solid but not thrilling.”
