Champagne Louis Roederer Overview
+
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 more slowly, producing wines that are sometimes rough and closed at the beginning of the ageing process, with a character that intensifies and becomes more refined through ageing in wood over long periods. Thirty percent of the wine is matured in oak casks and Brut Vintage is matured for at least four years in the cellars and rested for six months after disgorgement to attain optimal maturity. It is the Pinot Noirs from the Grand Cru rated village of Verzenay in particular that give this champagnes its velvety, creamy and elegant palate.

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.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 90% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Ageing: 4 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l
Malolatic Fermentation: 16%
Drink: Now to 2034

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.

“70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. 16% malo and 8% oak fermentation. Disgorged in early 2017. Picked very ripe at 11.3-11.5% potential alcohol, and deliberately reductive.
Smoky nose and then quite rich and dense. Masses of hedonistic pleasure.”

“Layered complexity of subdued toastiness over bright, fragrant fruitness. Light-weight yet intense, ripe fruity profile. Beautifully racy acidity on the linear, driven palate. Focused, creamy and long. ”
