Winemaker Notes

Yellow in colour with glints of light amber. Discreet and extremely fine bubbles. Intense bouquet combining sweet flowers (honeysuckle, broom), yellow fruits (peach) and lightly roasted dried nuts (hazelnut). Evolves towards spicy and citrus notes with a hint of Sancho pepper as well as soft, sweet, ripe notes of chestnut cream. Ample and 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.

Critical Acclaim

WE95 Wine Enthusiast
This beautiful wine, with its poise, elegance and balance, has both a steely mineral core and an outer ripe-fruit character. It has citrus, tight acidity and rich apple and green-plum flavors.
 
WW95
The 2012 Louis Roederer et Philippe Starck Brut Nature Blanc exhibits outstanding and refined notes, and shows and excellent raciness in the finish. TASTING: This wine brings green apple, chalk, and minerality to the fore. Pour a glass and enjoy it with a dozen raw oysters and plenty squirts of Meyer lemons.

JS94 James Suckling
This has a very fresh and pure, lemony nose and is completely mouth-filling. Then it freshens and composes and takes a fine, flinty, acidity-chiseled and dry ride to the finish. Super refreshing and saline. From biodynamically grown grapes
 
WS93 Wine Spectator
Firm, with racy acidity, this finely integrated rosé Champagne boasts a subtle undertow of smoky mineral and a lacy mousse supporting smoked almond, kumquat, dried white cherry and spun honey flavors that echo on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2030.
