2015 Louis Roederer Brut Nature Champagne / Philippe Starck
This bottling is a collaboration between Champagne Louis Roederer and French designer Philippe Starck. It is composed of 46% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier. 23% of the wines are vinified in oak. The medium yellow crystalline color showcases a very fine mousse. Preserved lemon peel, candied ginger and an assortment of citrus fruits are layered into a richly complex background with elements of crushed stones. The finish is bright, focused and well balanced.
