THE SECRET STRENGHT
- Colour : It has a golden hue with slightly orange-coloured and warm highlights.
- Nose : Its classic bouquet is both elegant and discreet. The attack of juicy ripe fruits (Pear Williams) and slightly acid red fruits (redcurrants) combined with nuances of hot pastries and Tarte Tatin that have just been taken out of the oven. The wine is ready to reveal its many qualities and, after a few minutes in the glass, reveals notes of white chocolate and hazelnuts produced by the fermentation in wood of some of the wines from the 2007 harvest. This juxtaposition of aromas of ripe, acid, and sweet fruits with the more roasted notes resulting from ageing becomes more pronounced over time and produces a real impression of depth.
- Mouth : The attack in the mouth is concentrated and continues with mature fruits. The wine is prolonged by smoky flavours, once again creating the impression of natural depth. The textures are silky, velvety, and almost luscious; they provide perfect overtones to the wine’s freshness in a luscious and sensual ensemble. Powdery and salty nuances stimulate the edges of the tongue, adding a precise and energetic quality. And the final phase of the tasting is predominantly an impression of refinement and lightness.

Louis Roederer Champagne
Discover 3 CHAMPAGNES in our cellar
In 1776, the Champagnes of Louis Roederer were born in Reims. This house also remains independent and family-run to this day. Their motto is borrowed from Prince Salina, "For everything to stay the same, everything must change". Louis Roederer is one of the rare houses to have a sizeable vineyard. They manage to fill two thirds of their barrels with their own harvest, guaranteeing that their vintage cuvées are sourced entirely from their vineyards. The house of Roederer is best known for its famous cuvée, le Cristal. Originally it was created for Czar Alexandre II who requested his own personalized bottle. Roederer brought in an artisan and master glassworker to create a transparent crystal bottle with a flat bottom, making it impossible to hide explosives in the butt of the bottle. Still today, the bottle is made of crystal and sports its imperial armor. At Dilettantes, we offer Cristal 2006 and 2002.
