The palate has a powerful, long and assertive feel, with peach and lemon pith, chalky minerals, and some grapefruit. A powerful vintage for Roederer.'

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Louis Roederer Brut Vintage 2012, 70% Pinot noir and 30% Chardonnay, a lower 8% of which is wine matured in oak. As noted by the Cellar master: "The perfect product from the Louis Roederer terroir, in which finesse, purity, precision, and harmony highlight the qualities of a great vineyard." Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon.

    The subtle bouquet, on the first nose, opens out gradually to reveal spring-like notes of fresh citrus fruit (lemon tree rather than lemon fruit) combined with warm, almost smoky, mineral aromas, followed by notes of lightly toasted almonds, one of the signs of the ageing in oak foudres.

    Region: Champagne
    Winemaker: Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon

  • REVIEWS

    'Just over two-thirds pinot noir (Verzenay) and the balance southeast-facing chardonnay from Chouilly. This has some oak fermentation which has compressed the wine, lending it an air of extreme concentration. The nose is gently spicy, offering peaches and cherries as well as neat autolysis edge. The palate has a powerful, long and assertive feel, with peach and lemon pith, chalky minerals, and some grapefruit. A powerful vintage for Roederer.'

    'This beautiful wine, with its poise, elegance and balance, has both a steely mineral core and an outer ripe-fruit character. It has citrus, tight acidity and rich apple and green-plum flavors. The wine is still a little young and will be better from 2019.'

    95 Points - Roger Voss, Wine Magazine

    70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. 4 years on lees. Dosage 9 g/l. Neat, dense, creamy. A bit sweeter than I would have expected. Smoky and creamy. Quite frothy! Is Jean-Baptiste making a point here? Long and satisfying but quite young.
