LOUIS ROEDERER BRUT VINTAGE 2014 CHAMPAGNE

Fascinated by the diversity of aromas expressed by the Pinot Noir variety in Champagne, Louis Roederer decided to base its Vintage Brut on the structure and power of Reims Mountain Pinot Noirs. These north-easterly facing vineyards take longer to ripen, producing wines that can sometimes be rough and confined at the start of the maturing process. However, their personality develops remarkably, becoming more intense over time when matured in wood. In 1850, Roederer decided to buy over 15 hectares in the Verzenay grand cru in order to have better control over how the grapes in this cuvee were used.

TASTING:
Intense, fresh and fruity bouquet, reminiscent of a tangy red fruit tart (wild strawberry, blueberry), slightly sweet yet underpinned by more concentrated, jammy and citrus notes. The aromatic complexity comes through after a few swirls in the glass giving us a medley of spice, warm cinnamon and peppers.

Fleshy attack dominated by ripe, crunchy, plump red fruit that brings depth and creaminess. The fruity structure is gradually elongated by a chalky, mineral freshness that creates a lingering sensation of lightness and harmony on the finish.
CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
95 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Roederer's 2014 Brut Vintage is beautiful, offering up aromas of pear, mirabelle plum, red berries, warm biscuits and smoke. Full-bodied, layered and elegantly muscular, it's seamless and complete, with terrific mid-palate depth and amplitude. Framed by bright acids and enlivened by a pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a penetrating finish. The blend is 70% Pinot Noir, emphasizing Verzy, and pressure is a touch higher than in its more ethereal Blanc de Blancs counterpart. As I wrote of its 2013 predecessor, this is a wine that puts many prestige cuvťes to shame."

94 points - The Somm Journal
"The vintage may have been marked by "clear, sharp contrasts," to quote the tech sheet, but the straw-hued result is not: Rather, the blend of 71% Pinot Noir and 29% Chardonnay is soft, smooth, and rich, showing bruised-peach aromas with undertones of nuts and honey before nectarine and lemon chiffon settle on the palate with a dash of nutmeg."

93 points - Wine Spectator
"A crisp and well-cut Champagne, delivering a strong mineral presence. There's a chalky underpinning to the tightly-meshed flavors of crunchy pear, raspberry, pickled ginger and pink grapefruit zest. Fine and lightly creamy in texture, with a mouthwatering finish that echoes the minerality. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Best from 2022 through 2030."
