2005 Louis Roederer Brut Vintage 1500ml
The 2005 Brut Vintage blossoms on the palate with layers of deep, expressive fruit. The weight of of the Pinot comes through loud and clear in this rich, textured Champagne. Ripe red berries, pears, hazelnuts and spices are some of the nuances that are layered into the rich, textured finish. This is another fabulous showing from Roederer. The 2005 Brut is 70% Pinot Noir from Verzenay and 30% Chardonnay from Avize. Approximately 50% of the wine was fermented in oak, and the malo was blocked. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.
