Small grower Champagne tasting with Munskänkarna, featuring some of the new generation of growers (Stockholm): Powerful nose with citrus, zest, yellow apples, some apple compote, a hint of beeswax and perfume. Very powerful on the palate, with citrus, powerful mineral notes, spice, and good acidity. Rather young, 91+ p.Disgorged 7 March 2013.More power than 2009 Les Pierrières, and a more powerful nose. The reason that I still score it the same as Les Pierrières is that it is somewhat shorter on the palate. For the 2008s, Les Roises came across as more mineral-dominated while 2008 Les Pierrières was the fruity one, so in 2009 the stylistic difference is inverted (and smaller than in 2008).
