 A superbly rich and creamy wine, powered by ripe Pinot Noir, with elegance and élan. The wine is concentrated, powerful, packed with intense white fruit flavors and citrus. For aging.  (12/ 2011)

 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.

Champagne

Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced.
