Golden colour with sparkling tints that are illuminated as the bubbles rise. It has a bouquet that is particularly characteristic of the great Pinot Noir grapes from Verzenay/Verzy; it contains ripe fruits: white fruit (Pear Williams) and vineyard peach combined with more acid citrus zest notes. There are also notes of dried fruit prolonged by toasted notes, resulting from ageing in French oak tuns and autolysis. A dense, round, and voluptuous mouth, which is characteristic of Louis Roederer’s calcareous clay Vintage estate. The fruity notes are juicy and full-bodied, and become red (fig) and even floral with hints of rose. This is followed by acid 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.


70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay; 18% vinified in oak casks; no malolactic fermentation; aged 4 years on lees; 9g/L dosage; 5% of Roederer’s estate fruit is devoted to this cuvee.
The glowing aura of the hot and ripe 2009 season has given birth to a Roederer vintage of generous proportions of fig, peach, red apple, grapefruit and even pineapple, singing with all the depth of pinot noir, bolstered by rich layers of ginger, freshly baked butter cake and spice.
It’s succulent and enticing, and for all of its confident generosity, its well-tempered by masterfully integrated malic acidity, prominent, salty chalk minerality and impeccably gauged phenolic grip.
The accord is compelling, finishing very long and linear, making for an accurate, captivating and eminently drinkable take of the season.
