94 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Roederer Vintage Brut 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 flavours. 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." SR

    Louis Roederer

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Established at the end of the eighteenth century, Louis Roederer is one of the last great Champagne houses to remain independent and family-run. The estate was inherited by Louis Roederer in 1833, who gave it his name and forged the wine’s unique style, character and taste. Under his visionary leadership the fame and reputation of the house of Louis Roederer was firmly established.

    Louis Roederer’s champagnes all share an attractive and direct expression and a dense, fresh, and sophisticated attack that develops into a sparkling and subtle bouquet. This is complemented by vivacious effervescence and delicious acidity. These sunny, pure, chiselled, and harmonious wines have a natural gift for creating pleasure: each wine has a unique way of embodying Louis Roederer’s distinctive style and constant quest for perfection.
