Champagne Roederer Vintage 2005

Unsurprisingly, Roederer’s Vintage 2005 is a tasty Champagne indeed. Here’s my note on the bottle consumed this evening:

Champagne Louis Roederer Vintage 2005
12% alcohol. Very youthful, fine and taut on the nose. Crisp with focused, complex citrus fruit and some fine toasty notes on the nose. The palate is fruity and precise with nice structure adding a bit of pithy grip. Lovely precision, fruit purity and depth of flavour with great concentration. Needs time: a serious effort. 94/100 (£60 Berry Bros & Rudd, Fine & Rare, Goedhuis, Harrods, Inverarity, The Wine Society, Majestic, Selfridges, Vintage House)

    Jamie – can you explain “taut on the nose” to me? Your tasting notes are always fairly accessible to the novice like me but this one has me lost!
