|Grapes||Chardonnay, Pinot Noir|
The rich and indulgent 2009 Vintage Brut is made up of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. All the Pinot comes from the family's Grand Cru vineyards in Verzenay which adds a full-on, powerful dimension to the blend. Just over a third of the wine is vinified in old oak tuns with weekly bâtonnage adding intensity and complexity - there is no Malolactic fermentation here either. Roederer age this cuvée for about four years on the lees before disgorgement and then a further six months to settle in the cellars before release. The dosage is 9 g/l. L&S (Jun 2017)

Estate bottled, so always from same 10 parcels, chosen for their style. Soil is more influential than blend. From 7 ha in Verzenay on chalk and clay. The Pinot Noir is a bit austere with some oyster shells. Plus 3 ha of south-east-facing Chouilly Chardonnay. 70% very cool Pinot Noir and 30% ripe Chardonnay fermented separately. Sometimes one of the 10 blocks is not used. Up to 50% of the Pinot is fermented in large old oak. No malo. They released the 2009 before the 2008. Dosage 8 g/l. Broad, savoury nose – really quite meaty! Lots of depth on the nose. Racy, bone dry and rather majestic on the palate. Big and bold.

Deep flavoured and exciting. Relatively rich (because of the vintage presumably) but with a great array of flavours. Long. A really satisfying drink. Lots to enjoy. Drinking range: 2017 - 2027 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Mar 2017)
