Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Brut Vintage 2015
From the Maker:
The Brut Nature was born from an idea of the dreamed-for, perfect champagne. It is a wine that captures the freshness of the clay soils in a sunny year, a wine of truth, the testimony to an encounter, a soil, a year, free spirits and the independent spirit that runs through the Champagne House. It is a champagne that perfectly encapsulates this new exploration of a Louis Roederer terroir.
2015 was a continental year that blessed us with perfectly ripe grapes with intensely fruity aromas, a dense texture and remarkable concentration. It was a spectacular vintage with a hot, sunny summer, record high temperatures and a glorious end to the season with rainy spells that helped to slow the ripening. This cool end to the growing cycle resulted in juicy grapes with a particularly interesting sappy, vegetal character.
About the Maker:
In 1845, Louis Roederer acquired 15 hectares in the Grand Cru vineyards of Verzenay. The idea—which was quite unusual at a time when grapes had little value—was to become a wine grower in order to master the entire process of creating his vintage wines. Ever since, every Louis Roederer vintage originates exclusively from our own vines, which is rare indeed in the Champagne region. The quest for a diversity of terroirs, crus, parcels, and grape varieties in the vineyards (or climats to use the Burgundian expression) was rapidly integrated by the House of Louis Roederer. A groundbreaking strategy was implemented, which involved buying specific parcels selected for their capacity to produce distinctive wines. This strategy is still a core component of the House’s continuing development.
