Description

Brut Nature is a champagne without artifice, conceived as an exchange, forged by a long-standing friendship. This champagne is the personification of the free thinking that resulted from an encounter between Maison Louis Roederer and the creator Philippe Starck. Louis Roederer CEO, Frédéric Rouzaud, brought his intuition, Philippe Starck developed the idea, and Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, made their vision a reality.
 
Abstract conversations between Frédéric Rouzaud, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon and Philippe Starck began with a few very specific descriptors which formed the foundations for the Brut Nature: honest, minimal, diagonal, modern.  Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, gave these words texture and brought them to life: "We came up with the idea of making a fresh wine from clay soils in a sunny year". Thus, the Brut Nature was born, a wine of the terroir, soil and climate, the perfect illustration of the alliance between Man and Nature.
 
The discussions between these three men, which started over ten years ago and resulted in the first opus, Brut Nature 2006, continued and evolved, leading to a second vintage in 2009, and now a third. 

Today, Maison Roederer and Philippe Starck are continuing this exciting adventure with the release of the 2012 vintage.  This is a vintage from a year that gave us high quality with grapes of remarkable strength and character, offering a particular sensitivity and even more vibrant and generous Pinot Noirs, which inspired us to create not one, but two, champagnes: a white and a rosé.
