“Bottled spring 2014. Vintages 2013 back to 2008 in here. Dosage 3.5 g/l.
Firm and even a little metallic on the nose. But lovely richness on the palate and you wouldn’t guess only 3.5 g/l dosage. Hint of baked apples. Kerpow! Real intensity and glamour.”

“ The Rodez family has been producing champagne for generations, currently owned by the eighth generation, Eric and Martine Rodez.

In total Eric Rodez cultivates 16 ha of vineyards, divided between 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. Malolactic conversion was suppressed on 95% of this Blanc de Noirs. Terroir d'Ambonnay, Les Beurys, Les Goisses, Les Secs, Les Fournettes, Les Genettes, Les Bas Touret, Le Petit Morin, Les Grandes Ruelles, Le Moulin, La Batarde, Les Bouités. 100% Pinot Noir blend based on 2013.

Tasted immediately after the all-Pinot Noir Roses de Jeanne 2017 and it's more obviously oaky and savoury on the nose. Rather like the stereotypical Bollinger with lots to chew on – meaty, stereotypically 'masculine'. Very complete and not remotely austere. Dense but also manages to be vibrant and refreshing. Cries out for something to nibble on at the same time, as recommended by the late Edmund Penning-Rowsell. ”
