#7 Vinepair 50 Best Wines of 2020 

The 2012 Brut Nature is rich, powerful and incredibly expressive. It is also the most complete Brut Nature Roederer has made, as it has less of the austerity of previous releases and more creaminess. Powerful and yet gracious, the 2012 has so much to offer. Dried flowers, chamomile, dried pear and mint are all laced throughout this sublime, wonderfully nuanced Champagne. The Brut Nature is a field bend of 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier taken from three parcels in Cumières and vinified together. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This has a very fresh and pure, lemony nose and is completely mouth-filling. Then it freshens and composes and takes a fine, flinty, acidity-chiseled and dry ride to the finish. Super refreshing and saline. From biodynamically grown grapes – 55% pinot noir, 25% chardonnay and 20% pinot meunier. Drink or hold. - James Suckling

If a wine can feel crisp, this is it. It has such a nice grip on the palate, with tight bubbles and a slight perception of dryness. It's not a yeasty bubbs. The fruit is tart and apple-y and ready to match with oysters or even proper, crunchy, homemade fried chicken. - Vinepair

The 2012 Brut Nature is showing beautifully, bursting from the glass with an expressive bouquet of lemon oil, crisp green apple, wheat toast, hazelnuts and wet stones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with its generous core of concentrated and delicately sun-kissed fruit girdled by brisk acids and undeniable mineral grip and complemented by a delicate pinpoint mousse. Concluding with a saline finish, this lovely wine is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, reflecting its origins in Cumières. William Kelley - The Wine Advocate

This Brut Nature is a Champagne collaboration imagined by French designer Philippe Starck and elaborated by Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Roederer's chef de cave. Made with 55% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay from Premier Cru vineyards in Cumières, it has a lively and intense bouquet of peach, citrus, and spring flower aromas. Tense and taut on the palate, this 2012 is just entering its first plateau of maturity. Keep it for a year or two. - Yohan Castaing, Decanter
