Tasting Notes

Palate
A dense, round, and voluptuous mouth, which is characteristic of Louis Roederer’s calcareous clay Vintage estate. The fruity notes are juicy and full-bodied, and become red (fig) and even floral with hints of rose. This is followed by acid flavours of citrus, spices, fresh wood, and black chocolate. The wine’s appeal is its lively and invigorating taste: it is structured and has a wonderful purity. The density and the fruitiness of the wine complements, in the fullest sense of the word, the freshness, elegance, and length.

Aroma
It has a bouquet that is particularly characteristic of the great Pinot noir grapes from Verzenay/Verzy; it contains ripe fruits: white fruit (Pear Williams) and vineyard peach combined with more acid citrus zest notes. There are also notes of dried fruit prolonged by toasted notes, resulting from ageing in French oak tuns and autolysis.

Vinification
The blend is 70% Pinot noir and 30% Chardonnay, with 37% of the wine vinified in oak tuns with weekly bâtonnage (stirring by hand); it is not subjected to malolactic fermentation.

Maturation
The Vintage cuvée is aged, on average, for 4 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for 6 months after disgorging to attain optimal maturity.

Appearance
Golden colour with sparkling tints that are illuminated as the bubbles rise.

Grapes/Blend
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
