An intense Champagne

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.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
From a beautiful vintage (JB Lécaillon), the 2008 Vintage Brut offers a very precise and refined nose of sweet cherries and lemons. Broad and round on the palate, with orange and lemon flavors, this full-bodied, full-flavored, yet very precise 70/30 Pinot and Chardonnay blend reveals great purity, vitality, finesse and a persistent finish. Sourced from clay soils in Verzy and Verzenay (Pinot), as well as Chouilly, the dry and intense 2008 reveals a remarkable transparency and definition. In fact, this cuvée seems to fly over the palate, but also coats it with an elegant and harmonious fruit. Forty percent of the wine was fermented in oak and 20% underwent malolactic fermentation. This is a very good value.
