Product Overview

The 2009 Louis Roederer Phillippe Starck Brut Nature is a collaboration between the famous Champagne house and French designer Phillippe Starck. All of the grapes from the various parcels grapes are grown exclusively in the Côteaux de Cumières and were harvested on the same day - a "fruit day" on the lunar calendar. The wine's intense bouquet combines sweet flowers (honeysuckle, broom), yellow fruits (peach), and lightly roasted dried nuts (hazelnut), evolving towards spicy and citrus notes with a hint of Sancho pepper as well as soft, sweet, ripe notes of chestnut cream. It's ample yet 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.

"Roederer's 2009 Brut Nature is compelling. Powerful, ample and creamy, the 2009 has more than enough natural richness and texture to carry the wine with no dosage. The Brut Nature emerges from vineyards in Cumieres, where the wines are naturally tense, which creates a fascinating push and pull with the ripeness of 2009 and no dosage approach. Of all the grand marque Chefs de Caves, Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon is the closest to his vineyards and the most artisan in spirit. That comes through loud and clear in this fabulous Champagne. The Brut Nature is also the single best value within the Roederer range today." -AG, Dec/2017

"Designer Philippe Starck was involved in the blending and label design of this Champagne. It is a pure crisp white-fruit-flavored wine, almost austere with intense acidity. Like many great bone dry Champagnes it will need to age to allow the spare lines of the wine to fill out. Drink this bottling from 2019." -RV, 12/1/17

"The bright golden Roederer & Starck 2009 Brut Nature assembles two-thirds Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with one-third Chardonnay. The grapes come from various parcels in Cumières and were harvested the same day and then pressed together all at once. The idea here is that the place is stronger than the expression of the varietals. Regarding the place, it's a deep and marly clay soil that gives a big expression of fruit in a continental and sunny year such as 2009. Indeed, the wine delivers very intense and creamy fruit aromas to the nose that combine the vinosity and structure of Pinot Noir with the ripeness of Pinot Meunier and the floral finesse and freshness of Chardonnay but doesn't represent the varieties as such. The 2009 was partly fermented in oak (at roughly 30%), but there was no malolactic fermentation. Disgorged in May 2016, the 2009 is now better than ever and reveals a fascinatingly pure yet delicate and elegant bouquet with iodine, lemon zest, hazelnut, herbal and very fine spicy notes, all perfectly interwoven. The palate is predestinated for the Brut Nature style because it's rich, ripe, round and fruity by the nature of the vintage and is also pure, fresh and salty, with just the right creaminess and mineral tension. The finish is long and chalky and reveals great mineral purity, tension and stimulating salinity. The 2009 has developed enormously in the past few years and is now very fine and elegant as well as perfectly matured. Tasted May 2018." -SR, 6/29/18

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Like a racehorse at the gate, this is full of power and energy, and the firm, minerally frame finds its stride thanks to the cloak of fine and creamy mousse carrying flavors of crunchy white peach and pear fruit, grated ginger and pink grapefruit zest. Best from 2019 through 2029. 609 cases imported." -AN, 11/30/17
