"The 2005 Brut Vintage blossoms on the palate with layers of deep, expressive fruit. The weight of of the Pinot comes through loud and clear in this rich, textured Champagne. Ripe red berries, pears, hazelnuts and spices are some of the nuances that are layered into the rich, textured finish. This is another fabulous showing from Roederer. The 2005 Brut is 70% Pinot Noir from Verzenay and 30% Chardonnay from Avize. Approximately 50% of the wine was fermented in oak, and the malo was blocked. Anticipated maturity: 20112015. Iridescent yellow color with slightly amber highlights. Lively bubbles, with a creamy flow. An intense bouquet developing spicy and sweet aromas (cedar, cigar box) combined with juicy ripe fruit (yellow peach) and chocolaty hints. Almost overwhelmingly, the nose reveals all the riches of roasted fruit, concentrated and browned in the sun of 2005. The mouth is round and gentle, both rich and dense, with an unctuous, fruity texture. The ripeness of the fruit is clear; syrupy and penetrating. You find yourself suddenly transported to superb gardens, strolling amid a riot of scented flowers, divinely refreshed by firm, strong, mineral acidity. This 2005 Vintage Brut, with its perfect balance between concentration and freshness, softness and minerality, displays quite rare elegance and raciness, accompanied by a very longlasting finish promising fine years of aging."
