Roederer Brut Vintage 2009
Golden colour with sparkling tints ripe fruits: white fruit (Pear Williams) and peach combined with notes of dried fruit prolonged by toasted notes, resulting from ageing in French oak tuns A dense, round, and voluptuous mouth, floral with hints of rose. This is followed by 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.
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. The Vintage cuvée is aged, on average, for four years in Louis Roederer’s cellars and left for six months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain optimal maturity
