Louis Roederer: Brut Nature 2006 by Starck

[English] Made of 67% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay. No dosage. Lovely  typical pinot noir red golden color with fine bubbles. The nose is an explosion of fruit: we smell blackberries in the sun, blueberry, cherry candy, doyenné pear, candied pineapple, green plants, maraschino cherry, honeydew melon and cheese crust. After a while smoky wood notes

[English] Made of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Copper golden color with extremely small bubbles and soft mousse. In the nose we get old attic smell, tannic acid, caramel, brandy and a light oxidative touch of sherry, cranberries, ripe citrus fruits, the ash of Morbier cheese and even some leather.

The acidity is still

[English] Tasted out of a Riedel Riesling Grand Cru glas. In the nose: red currant, raspberry anise, ham from Parma and roses. On the palate: strawberry, raspberry, white pepper, orange zeste, minerality and a hint of fennel. Delicate, sophisticated structure. The finish is medium+ with minerality and lemon acidity. Very young at the moment, should improve well by time.
