Description

Each Collection is a change of gear, a new chapter in the Champagne House's world of taste. Always unique, yet always decidedly Roederer!

2018 was a warm, continental, and truly unique vintage. Summer set many new records in terms of heat, drought, and sunshine levels. The Pinot noirs displayed a luxurious texture whilst the Chardonnays were dense and saline was harvested at perfect ripeness and the Meuniers were intensely fruity.

The collection has all its warmth and generosity thanks to the perfect ripeness of the fruit harvested in the 2018 vintage, yet it is the freshness, energy, and complexity of the 'Réserve Perpétuelle' created in 2012, as well as the texture imparted by the oak aging, that extend and elongate the wines' body resulting in unrivalled finesse and persistence.

Tasting Profile

Nose
The bouquet is open and rich yet also wonderfully fresh. It offers an explosion of ripe, delicate fruit with intense notes of yellow fruit (mirabelle plum) from the Pinot noir complemented by sweet citrus fruits (lemon meringue pie) and delicate notes of white flowers (jasmine) from the Chardonnay. The nose opens up to reveal autolytic characters and evolves towards smoky, roasted notes and freshly baked pastries.
Palate
The palate is deep and dense with a big, well-structured backbone. The texture is simply mesmerising with its fleshy mouthfeel from the Pinot noir that coats the palate before giving way to an incredible saline freshness with a pleasant hint of bitterness. This wine combines the strength, intensity, and power of the delectably ripe Pinot noirs which are balanced to perfection by the chalky freshness and density of the Chardonnay which forms the majority of the blend.
