By Louis Roederer Champagne
Every year, we seek to produce a Brut Collection that achieves the perfect balance between freshness and indulgence with a delicate yet rich style, both youthful yet mature, with a distinctive texture that is equally well-suited for aperitif drinking and gastronomy. Each year the base is patiently crafted and then recrafted, using the strength of the most recent vintage, which is carefully softened, honed, and tamed to preserve its unique character. The reserve wines are aged individually, parcel by parcel, and spend ten years in French oak barrels to give Brut Collection its characteristic consistency. This delicate process involves 200 to 300 different batches. The wines, varietals, crus, and vintages are harmoniously and deliciously blended to ensure that everything changes, yet nothing changes at all!
40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier
Partial malolactic fermentation with 10% of the wine is vinified in oak casks. Brut Collection is aged for three years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is nine g/l.
Appearance: Bright yellow hue flecked with gold. Its lively sparkle forms beautiful, even streams of bubbles.
Aromas: Aromas of citrus fruit (lemon) and fresh, zesty notes combined with soft tones of grilled hazelnuts and heady acacia flowers. After aeration, the wine develops hints of fresh wood, subtle spices (pepper, cardamom), cocoa beans, and honey nougat, which add depth.
Palate: The palate is simultaneously smooth, rounded, and fresh. The attack is juicy, direct, concentrated, and pure, yet exceptionally soft and gives way to a saline freshness endowing it with remarkable mineral precision and discreet elegance. The result is a delicate, fluid, supple, coherent, and disconcertingly honest tasting experience!
Equally well-suited as an aperitif or a food wine, Brut Collection offers a direct and precise yet juicy, fresh style.
