"Roederer’s white golden 2012 Brut Vintage is a classic Millésime. Based on 70% cool-climate Pinot Noir from Verzy and Verzenay (Montagne de Reims) and 30% Chardonnay from a very warm, south/southwest-facing vineyard in Chouilly (Côte des Blancs), the 2012 represents the mineral terroirs of its origins beautifully—pure, refined and fresh. Fermented 8% in oak and with just 16% of the volume having done malolactic fermentation to make the Roederer Brut Vintage a classic gastronomic wine, the 2012 shows a deep, rich and ripe but also fine, precise and elegant chalky nose with hazelnut, toasted almond and blossom flavors. The palate is profound, round, highly elegant and fresh, and the long, remarkably salty finish is very complex and terribly fresh in its persistent mineral expression. This is an impressive, ripe and almost creamy textured but precise and finessed 2012 with power, body and structure. A true, highly stimulating classic. Just love it! Disgorged in January 2017 after four years of bottle aging (dosage: nine grams per liter). Tasted in Reims in May 2018. "2012 was one of the most challenging and complicated years ever experienced in Champagne," says Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. "However, difficult conditions often lead to great things..." The yields were low, and the continental climatic conditions toward the end of the season gave unusual levels of maturity, resulting in "rich, full-bodied and structured wines." - Stephan Reinhardt

    Louis Roederer

    Caves à terre - ICONIQUE Producteur

    Créée à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, Louis Roederer est l'une des dernières grandes maisons champenoises à rester indépendante et familiale. Le domaine a été hérité par Louis Roederer en 1833, qui lui a donné son nom et a forgé le style, le caractère et le goût uniques du vin. Sous sa direction visionnaire, la renommée et la réputation de la maison Louis Roederer étaient fermement établies.

    Les champagnes de Louis Roederer partagent tous une expression attrayante et directe et une attaque dense, fraîche et sophistiquée qui se développe en un bouquet pétillant et subtil. Ceci est complété par une effervescence vive et une délicieuse acidité. Ces vins ensoleillés, purs, ciselés et harmonieux ont un don naturel pour créer du plaisir: chaque vin a une manière unique d’incarner le style distinctif de Louis Roederer et sa quête constante de perfection.
