The Champagne House Roederer collaborated with Designer Philippe Starck to create a unique brut nature vintage champagne.

The champagne is based on the 2006 harvest, when the grapes’ maturity produced an exceptional and very promising vintage.

As explained by Frédéric Rouzaud, Managing Director of Champagne Louis Roederer, the champagne is “The fruit of several convergences: between a historic terroir and a remarkable year, and between a Champagne House that respects nature and a creative genius with a free spirit” 

While Louis Roederer’s champagnes have a dosage of 9 to 10 grams per litre, Philippe Starck is quite adamant about his vision of the ideal champagne: “it must be a non-dosed.”

In 2006, the Pinot noir grapes from the Cumières terroir were exceptionally mature and had a rare depth of flavour and texture.

Because of the fruitiness and richness of the grapes, Roederer Cellar Master Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon decided to allow nature to take its course and not to add any dosage.

These grapes were to be the core ingredient of this new wine that had been developed with Philippe Starck. The Brut Nature 2006 cuvée is now a reality.
