Louis Roederer 2012 Brut Nature Champagne "Louis Roederer & Philippe Starck" 1.5L Magnum


1500 ml "Magnum

"Six years on the lees before disgorgement has produced a Champagne that is just approaching perfect maturity. It is dry but that dryness has now softened with the developing nuttiness. This wine, developed as a collaboration with designer Philippe Starck, is now ready to drink. " Wine Enthusiast 94 Points

"The 2012 Brut Nature is showing beautifully, bursting from the glass with an expressive bouquet of lemon oil, crisp green apple, wheat toast, hazelnuts and wet stones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with its generous core of concentrated and delicately sun-kissed fruit girdled by brisk acids and undeniable mineral grip and complemented by a delicate pinpoint mousse. Concluding with a saline finish, this lovely wine is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, reflecting its origins in Cumières." Robert Parker 93 Points

"First made in 2006, the 2012 Starck Brut Nature offers a ripe, sexy bouquet of green apples, green almonds, white flowers, and chalky minerality. It has bright acidity, medium to full body, terrific balance, and a clean, lengthy finish. A blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier, and the rest Chardonnay, it’s going to evolve gracefully for 10-15 years." Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points

"This finely knit Champagne crackles with mouthwatering acidity, while the satiny mousse swathes the palate, carrying flavors of crunchy pear, rich grilled nut, white cherry and a touch of honeycomb. Long and creamy on the minerally, saline-laced finish." Wine Spectator 92 Points
