The Louis Roederer Vintage Cuvée is a Champagne made with a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. The ageing is quite long at 4 years. It then rested for 6 months after disgorgement to help develop its magnificent maturity.
At the tasting, the Louis Roederer Vintage Cuvée 2008 offers a splendid gold colour with shimmering reflections. The nose exudes ripe and white fruit, peach and citrus zest aromas, as well as dried fruit and toasty notes. On the palate, there is a lovely density, roundness and voluptuousness. The champagne develops spice, fresh oak, dark chocolate and tangy flavours. Its energy, beautiful structure and great purity unveil champagne that is fresh and elegant with a long-lasting finish.
