Roederer Vintage 2012… the finest in recent years
25 April 2020

Routinely one of our favourite vintage Champagnes, we are delighted to offer a small parcel of Roederer’s Brut Vintage 2012 at £240 IB per 6 bottles. Finely poised with subtly toasted white fruit, a caressing and persistent bead of fine, softly textured bubbles and a salty, chalky finish, the 2012 has a floating, high toned elegance and exudes class. The sumptuously styled, yet incredibly precise, 2012 vintage has been a stunner from the off, and the estate rightly consider it their finest release in recent years. Roederer’s consistently high quality they ascribe to the high proportion of estate-owned vineyards they use, around 70% - the highest percentage of any Grand Marque. In fact, these are the very same vineyards from which the iconic Cristal hails, made by the same winemaking team. If Cristal is a little out of reach but you’d like to experience a little of its stardust at a snip of the price, then the 2012 comes highly recommended.

Roederer’s white golden 2012 Vintage is a classic Millésime. Based on 70% cool-climate Pinot Noir from Verzy and Verzenay (Montagne de Reims) and 30% Chardonnay from a very warm, south/southwest-facing vineyard in Chouilly (Côte des Blancs), the 2012 represents the mineral terroirs of its origins beautifully—pure, refined and fresh. Fermented 8% in oak and with just 16% of the volume having done malolactic fermentation to make the 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 flavors. 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. – 94 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate.
