Description

Producer Note

Louis Roederer inherited the Champagne House in 1833, starting the tradition of excellence. His unique approach focussed on the soil. The 1st house to do a cuvee prestige in 1876, ‘Cristal;’ they also made champagne exclusively for Tsar Alexander II.  Run by the seventh generation they remain family owned, producing champagne of subtly and elegance

Tasting Note

Rich and complexaromas with notes of zesty and candied fruit (lemon) mingled with pollen (white flowers), roasted hazelnut and Madagascar vanilla. After aeration, the bouquet develops rich notes of fresh pastries and smoky notes from bottle ageing. A delicious, concentrated and chalky palate. It shows incredible tension and perfectly honed aromatic precision. The attack is powerful, distinctive and concentrated and reveals a silky, mouth-coating texture, characteristic of the ripe Pinot noirs from the 2012 vintage.
