Golden-yellow with an amber hue. The mousse is extremely fine and lively which leads to the aroma opening up with intense, precise glimpses of red berry fruit mingled with juicy ripe peaches, notes of orange-zest and apricot, toasted almonds and yeasty aromas of brioche. As the wine airs, it develops nuances of toasty, caramelised oak, a hallmark of the OLD Louis Roederer house style.
The palate is rounded, fleshy and full-bodied, revealing a sappy wine with a tightly-grained framework underpinning an intensely vinous, even slightly robust texture. The well-measured dosage of this champagne combines elegant power with enough mineral acidity to support the long finish of citrus zest, nuts and toasty spice
Pinot noir 66%, chardonnay 34%
11 - 12 g/l and the "liqueur dosage" is prepared from a selection of 8-10 of the very best cru's from Louis Roederer vineyards, which have been aged for 4-10 years in oak.
