Roger Barnier 100% Old-Vine Champagne 2012

£52.99

This is the top wine from Roger Barnier. Vines still making fruit all the way back to 1910, this is old vine champagne with the age of each vine stated on the label. Gastronomic champagne at it’s best, it is intense in taste with a long, elegant finish. Ageing in wood gives complexity alongside flavours of vibrant citrus fruit, peach stone, hazelnut and light baking spices.

    About the producer:

    Roger Barnier set out on the task of producing a Champagne that was not only for drinking, but also as something gastronomic, to complement and enjoy with food. Five generations of winemakers later, Roger Barnier’s development his own cuvées and style is still present in the current range.

    The champagne house operates 8 hectares of vineyards spread over 35 of their own plots, located in several villages of Champagne. They believe in sustainable vineyard practises, in respecting the land and the earth, manual picking of the grapes for the gentlest of handling, and parcel separation of grapes during the winemaking process for great rare and unique Champagne wines.

    The jewel in the crown of this producer is not just that the grapes are all their own (which is quite rare), but the age of their vines. As well as growing the more famous Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, they consider themselves experts in Pinot Meunier and have vines that still produce grapes dating back all the way to 1910. Their flagship cuvee is 100% Pinot Meunier Champagne and lists the actual ages of every vine that contributes to Roger Barnier’s ongoing gastronomic legacy.
