Very much in line with Roederer’s non-vintage champagne the vintage release from the house could be described as “clean” and “contemporary” (dare I say “sophisticated”). Although it does enjoy more time ageing in Louis Roederer’s cellars (4 years as opposed to 3 years on lees) it is only enough to impart a hint more toast and brioche to the wine and by no means overpowers the beguiling fruit aromas and flavours in the wine. The blend of the wine favours Pinot Noir (70%) with the balance made up of Chardonnay. The result is a vintage champagne that shows dangerously well from the moment it is released – but does reward the patience of those with the self-control not to drink it straight off the bat.
