2012 is a solar, intense and generous year, that gave us high quality with grapes of remarkable strength and character, and even more vibrant and generous Pinot Noirs. This year has therefore shown itself to be one of the greatest in history and has given Louis Roederer two wines, a white and a rosé.
Intense aromas of juicy, ripe fruit such as vineyard peach and candied lemon combined with toasty notes and hazelnut. The ripeness of the fruit is revealed through the aromas of baked apples, tarte tatin, caramelized spices and a hint of fresh wood and benzoin.
The attack is juicy and textural. The gentle, velvety smooth effervescence coats the palate before giving way to an intense, saline freshness. This delicious combination gives the wine a lovely intensity further enhanced by excellent freshness and a pleasant hint of bitterness. This intensity overrides the juicy, rounded body and gives way to a clean, direct and remarkably pure finish.
