Louis Roederer Brut Cellar Selection 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The availability of this product is limited and subject to change.<br/><br/>Wine Advocate Review<br/>Rated 95<br/>CELLAR SELECTION<br/>A deliciously ripe wine, full of fruit as well as a great mineral texture. It completely expresses the exceptional 2008 with all its structure. Still young, it's all fruit and freshness that promise serious bottle aging. Drink this complex, serious wine from 2017.<br/><br/>Wine Tasting Notes<br/>The wine has golden tones with light amber highlights, typical of the Pinot Noir, and exuberant mousse with a lively stream of bubbles. There is a subtle, nutty-citrus nose- scents of orange and hazelnuts punctuated by those warm, fruity notes typical of predominantly wood-aged Pinot Noir. Swirling the glass releases a flurry of richer, riper fragrances: crystallized fruit, baked apples, toast, Tarte Tatin and caramel. The palate is characteristically vintage Roederer: deep and full on first attack, showing rich, rounded vinosity but with all the refined sweetness, acidity and tight-knit texture of Pinot Noir fruit from the Verzenay vineyard. It is perfectly integrated overall, with an elegant, almost feminine feel and flavors that evolve towards the sweet, palate-caressing texture of candied fruit, marzipan, toast, white chocolate and caramel. This is a classic vintage Brut: all the traditional flavors of Champagne expressed with a refinement, precision, purity and harmony that is quintessentially Roederer.

The distinctive qualities of each parcel are the result of great respect for nature. Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity.   The harvest from each parcel is pressed and vinified separately. Over the months, the wine is tasted and analysed by the oenologists; this provides them with an extensive aromatic palette that gives them a rich choice and enables them to develop blends under the watchful eye of the Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. This quest for authenticity matches Philippe Starck’s desire to collaborate on the development of a unique, finely tuned, and authentic cuvée. They decided to draw inspiration from river wines to create a straightforward, medium-dry, terroir-based champagne. Consequently, every measure was taken on the south-facing parcels of Pinot noir to nurture grapes that would attain great maturity, in order to obtain an excellent fruit that would require very minor corrective measures.
