LOUIS ROEDERER BRUT NATURE PHILIPPE STARCK EDITION 2009

WINERY NOTES:
It all began in 2003, an exceptionally sunny year, which was problematic for the northern vineyards, revealed for the first time that certain vineyards had remarkable potential in the heart of the historic Champagne hillsides on the Louis Roederer estate. Located in the heart of the calcareous clay soil hillsides of Cumieres, Hautvillers, and Vertus, which are rich in hard, coarse sandstone, this ensemble of parcels had no difficulty in resisting the heat and drought in the summer of 2003. Better still, the vineyards produced aromatic, intense, and balanced grapes. The resulting wines, which were vinified separately, parcel by parcel, are characterized by an optimal aromatic maturity, a creamy texture, and a vibrant freshness.

The second opus of our Brut Nature is the perfect representation of a modern, ripe and ready-to-drink champagne with a fresh, pure, almost abstract style and remarkable precision.

The collaboration between Frederic Rouzaud and Philippe Starck encouraged the Louis Roederer team to be innovative - the wine was developed through discussions, words that conjure up images, ideas and concepts in a quest for the ideal champagne. Translating these discussions and words into the reality of grape cultivation and the development of the wine was a fundamental step in creating this cuvee, which continues to evolve quite naturally in complete freedom as part of a process of contemporary creation... in a perpetual quest for perfection!

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. All this meant traditional vine growth, excellent health and remarkable grape ripeness for the production of dense, fruity and delicious wines. 2009 is an obvious addition to the select group of brilliant and accomplished Champagne vintages with a light, sunny character.

REVIEWS:
"This is the second release of the collaboration between Roederer and Philippe Starck, a blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay grown in the deep clay soils of Cumieres, harvested and fermented together. It's a wine that requires a sunny vintage, as it's captured without malolactic and without dosage. And it's not a wine for the timid; one of our tasters described it as "sadistic," while others were captivated by its energy, by the details embedded but not yet shared, by the naked, spherical intensity of the wine. The flavors stick to the lips, extending their lasting complexity. Give this time to rest in your cellar before opening, and perhaps decanting, a bottle." - 94 POINTS - Wine and Spirits Magazine
