Louis Roederer Starck Brut Nature Champagne Blend 2009

Pure yeast notes on the nose. Bone dry on the palate. Calcium overload with crisp Granny Smiths. Not our style. The name suggests that this wine is close to nature, and it certainly is somewhat raw.

The interplay of the radiance of the 2009 vintage, with the natural tension of Cumieres and the no dosage style works beautifully here. A stellar showing!

IMO this is the hidden gem in the Roederer range. From vines in Cumieres. Super excited for the opportunity to help take Delectable to the next level with you!

Much more approachable at release than the 2006. Terrific wine.

A rare miscue. This was not good - too lemon forward with bracing acid and a cloying mid. It was slightly off bitter as well. The wine begs for dosage. I can see what they’re going for here but it’s far and away not my style. Leaving the Brut Nature to the hipsters...

Volume, intensity and acidity... all showing well which makes this one a pleasure to drink.

They know how to make champagne! Crisp and light in flavor. Acid is balanced. Apple on the nose if you let it warm up.
