Tasting Notes and Scores

Reviewer Score Notes
David Schildknecht 90 Orange zest, bruised apple skin, coriander seed, and hedge flowers rise from the glass of Roederer 2006 Brut, a 70-30 Pinot-Chardonnay blend a third of which was aged in cask with weekly lees-stirring. The palate impression here is at once richly expansive and tactilely pungent, with apple and peach fruit sappy and ripe but prominently marked by the piquancy of pips and pit. A roughly ten gram dosage emphasizes the impression of fresh ripe apple in a long, juicy finish, if with a result that some may find a tad divisively sweet-tart. It would certainly be interesting to follow bottles for a couple of years to see whether further depth emerges. Owners of vast vineyards (totally some 500 acres) that supply the majority of their fruit, Roederer also presides – by design as well as due to that vastness – over a mind-bending number of micro-vinifications, divided entirely between tanks and foudres, supplemented by a concomitantly deep and diverse range of reserve wines. But for all of the variety that these phenomena entail, scarcely any lots undergo malo-lactic transformation.
