Roederer's 2009 Brut Nature is compelling. Powerful, ample and creamy, the 2009 has more than enough natural richness and texture to carry the wine with no dosage. The Brut Nature emerges from vineyards in Cumieres, where the wines are naturally tense, which creates a fascinating push and pull with the ripeness of 2009 and no dosage approach. Of all the grand marque Chefs de Caves, Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon is the closest to his vineyards and the most artisan in spirit. That comes through loud and clear in this fabulous Champagne. The Brut Nature is also the single best value within the Roederer range today.

The key to Roederer’s distinctive cuvée is the terroir of its estate in Cumières, the most incredible biodynamic vineyard in Champagne. The sunny 2009 season infused a ripeness framed by tight yet delightfully ripe and pure acidity, with a rare harmony that calls for no dosage. A delicate balancing act and kudos to the wizardry of Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. Drinking Window 2024 - 2029.
