Vintage Champagne 2012
Louis Roederer’s 2012 is an absolute revelation. Rich, powerful and incredibly energetic, it’s intensely smoky, creamy, peachy, citrusy, nutty and chalky, and that finish just goes on and on for days. Jancis Robinson has described it as offering “masses of hedonistic pleasure”, James Suckling has praised its “extreme concentration”, and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate called it: “A true, highly stimulating classic. Just love it!” And we do.
Despite being stressful and complicated, 2012 was an exceptional vintage in Champagne, particularly for the Pinot Noir that dominates this blend. The Pinot Noir came from low-yielding vines in Verzy and Verzenay, while the 30% Chardonnay was picked from Chouilly. Aged for four years in the bottle and a further six months after disgorgement this is everything you would expect from one of the greatest Champagne houses in one of the greatest vintages, and more.
