Louis Roederer Blanc de Blancs Vintage Champagne 2010

Champagne, FranceThe Blanc de Blancs vintage is only produced in small quantities from top crus in the Côte des Blancs. In 2010, 20 percent of the wine was vinified in oak casks with no MLF. This wine was taken off at lower pressure, in the aims of a fuller, richer flow of bubbles. The wine rests five years in the cellars and left for a minimum of 6 months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity. The dosage is 9 g/l. Taut and purposefully chiseled, with firm lemon tart bones and a flakey brioche base. Salt roasted hazelnuts, lemon curd, is scented with acacia and driven with a tight stream of acidity through the lingering finish. While drinking well now, this is just a baby, and will hold and deeper with cellaring.Tasted: 09 December 2017Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices:
