Description & Technical Information
-
All Louis Roederer Vintage champagnes are made from grapes from their own estate. Fascinated by the aromatic diversity of Pinot Noir in Champagne, Louis Roederer use the structure and power of the Pinot Noir grapes from the Montagne de Reims to create their Brut Vintage blend. Exposed to the north-east, these grapes mature much slower, producing wines that are sometimes rough and closed at the beginning of the ageing process. The character of the Pinot Noir intensifies and becomes more refined through long ageing in wood. It is the Pinot Noirs from the Grand Cru rated village of Verzenay in particular that give the champagnes its velvety, creamy and elegant palate. The Chardonnay from the most east facing vineyards in Chouilly, brings the richness and generosity to the champagne. Some of the wine, the percentage varies each year, is fermented in large oak tanks and once in the bottle it is on the lees for at least four years and rested for six months after disgorgement to attain optimal maturity.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Tasting Note: A subtle bouquet on the nose, with a vibrant freshness. Citrus notes, lemon and almonds combine on the mid-palate. Hints of toast and brioche with great acidity shines through right through to the finish.
