Louis Roederer Brut Nature 2009 by Philippe Starck
The collaboration between Frederic Rouzaud and Philippe Starck helped create this innovative wine in a quest for the ideal champagne.The second opus of Brut Nature is the perfect representation of a modern, ripe and ready-to-drink champagne with a fresh, pure, almost abstract style and remarkable precision.
On the eye: Yellow in color with glints of light amber. Discreet and extremely fine bubbles.
On the nose: Intense bouquet combining sweet flowers (honeysuckle, broom), yellow fruits (peach) and lightly roasted dried nuts (hazelnut). Evolves towards spicy and citrus notes with a hint of Sancho pepper as well as soft, sweet, ripe notes of chestnut cream.
On the palate: Ample and light on entry to the palate. Ample, thanks to its sweet, creamy, almost spherical texture that seductively wraps around the mouth, coating the palate; light, due to its elegant, saline freshness that stretches the wine giving it a smooth, delicate and airy mouthfeel. You will not fail to be charmed by its juicy aromas of sun-drenched fruit that gently caress the palate. An elegant bitterness combined with zesty, spicy and delicate oaky notes linger on the finish.
