Louis Roederer Collection 244, Brut

Louis Roederer Collection 244, Brut

Lovely golden yellow, very champagne-like, hue.
Dense and steady flow of extremely fine bubbles.
Deep, broad bouquet of ripe fruit (wild peaches, william
pears) combined with citrus (lemons, blood oranges). The
iodised and smoky notes, associated with the autolysis and
the ageing in wood, add aromatic freshness. Then come
notes of chalk and a hint of reduction, suggesting that
the wine will be concentrated and powerful.
The entry to the palate is delicious showing a rich and
robust texture. We have a very juicy and concentrated
sensation as if we were biting into a ripe fruit. The
substance is caressingly soft, coating the palate but is
then immediately lightened by the delicate bubbles. The
length is created by a lovely backbone of chalky freshness.
The wine is both delectably rich, with a slightly roasted
character, and super fresh thanks to a salivating finish.
The smoky notes then take over to underpin a very
flavoursome finish.
Collection 244 marks the return of the texture of the
Meunier from the Marne and the Montagne, which adds
a lovely richness to the well-structured and saline Pinot
noir and Chardonnay grapes
