A golden colour and scent of golden fruits and smoky, yeasty notes. Louis Roederer Brut Nature is dry and yet has a creamy textured palate with great depth of flavours, ripe fruits, slightly toasted hazelnuts, hint of spice and finally a lovely mineral and citrus fresh lifting finish. It all began in 2003, in this exceptionally sunny year, which was problematic for the northern vineyards, and revealed for the first time certain vineyards with remarkable potential in the heart of the Louis Roederer estate. Located on the calcareous clay soil hillsides of Cumières, Hautvillers, and Vertus, rich in hard, coarse sandstone, these parcels of grapes had no difficulty in resisting the heat and drought in the summer of 2003. In fact, the vineyards produced aromatic, intense, and balanced grapes. The resulting wines are characterised by an optimal aromatic maturity, a creamy texture, and a vibrant freshness. This encouraged the Louis Roederer Champagne House to carry out a series of bottling trials. The wines were fine-tuned in 2003, 2004, and 2005, which culminated in the selection of the 2006 vintage. The collaboration between Frédéric Rouzaud and Philippe Starck encouraged innovation and stimulating the creativity. The wine was developed through discussions and words that conjure up images, ideas, concepts in the quest for the ideal champagne.
