MAG-Louis Roederer Brut Champagne 2013 (France) MAGNUM
Producer Notes: Golden yellow hue with clear, bright tints. Elegant, dynamic and softly integrated effervescence. The nose is initially subtle and quite restrained. It gradually opens up to reveal a bouquet of orchard fruits such as apples and pears, and evolves towards slightly sweet floral and honeyed notes, before giving way to concentrated citrus aromas and zesty redcurrant fruit. The attack is rich, concentrated, broad, deep and fruity. It reveals the strength and maturity of the Pinot noir from Verzy through its concentrated body, fresh herbal notes and hint of spice and ginger. The unique Verzy terroir, in which the Pinot noirs are grown, is combined with traditional ageing methods with a high proportion of French oak barrels to create a myriad of smoky, spicy and mineral notes. The palate is structured by a herbal freshness that makes it well suited to gastronomy and results in a sensation bordering on umami.
Wine Advocate, 95 Points: “Roederer's newly released 2013 Brut Vintage is showing brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with a youthfully reserved but incipiently complex bouquet of crisp yellow orchard fruit, citrus zest, fresh bread and honeycomb. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, this is a tightly coiled, elegantly muscular Champagne, its layered core of fruit built around an incisive spine of acidity. Seamless and complete, this is an over-performing vintage that puts many prestige cuvées to shame. Built to age, it will reward patience."
Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points: “While this vintage wine is still too young, it obviously has potential. The bright, tangy texture, minerality and the pure line of white fruits all point to a future of rich maturity. Wait to drink this wine until 2023."
