Louis Roederer Brut Nature 2009
Designer Philippe Starck was involved in the blending and label design of this Champagne. It is a pure crisp white-fruit-flavored wine, almost austere with intense acidity. Like many great bone dry Champagnes it will need to age to allow the spare lines of the wine to fill out. Drink this bottling from 2019.
Like a racehorse at the gate, this is full of power and energy, and the firm, minerally frame finds its stride thanks to the cloak of fine and creamy mousse carrying flavors of crunchy white peach and pear fruit, grated ginger and pink grapefruit zest. Best from 2019 through 2029. 609 cases imported.
