Philippe Starck Brut Nature Champagne 2015
95 points, “This complex and unique expression is full of energy and has great gastronomic appeal.” – Jeb Dunnuck
94 points, “The most compelling rendition of this bottling that Roederer has produced to date, the 2015 Brut Nature exhibits inviting aromas of golden orchard fruit, clear honey, dried white flowers and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, layered and vinous, with a fleshy, concentrated core of fruit, chalky structure and a long, precise finish, it's a Pinot Noir-dominant blend from Cumières that's slightly lower in pressure, making for a more delicate mousse.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
This bottle was created by one of the wine world’s most exciting collaborations: Champagne legend and Cristal producer Louis Roederer combining with the famous designer Philippe Starck.
The two have been working together since 2006, and Philippe Starck has compared their partnership as being “like the Queen of England with Johnny Rotten – and I’m the punk.” The charmingly penned label certainly reflects that, with its pared-back feel in direct contrast to Champagne’s usual fancy flair. Always keen to shake things up and break from the norm, creative genius Philippe Starck says: “Elegance is always in the minimal.”
The Brut Nature is created from a 10-hectare, biodynamically farmed vineyard in the Premier Cru village of Cumières. This concentrated wine was harvested in a vintage that the Champagne region was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. No dosage has been added, so that you can enjoy the vintage in all its natural glory. Bone-dry, saline and almost electric in its vibrancy; think lemon sorbet flecked with candied lemon peel, vanilla, blossom, sea spray on a pebbly beach, toasted hazelnut, spiced apple crumble and Tarte Tatin. Super refreshing and, much like the rosé version, this will really appeal to the Martini and gin and tonic drinker.
