Why R.012?
Francis has gone back to first principles: like most other wines the world over, a non-vintage champagne is principally the product of one vintage; but unlike most other wines, it is blended with ‘reserve wine’ of previous vintages to give depth and elegance to what would otherwise be an underdeveloped youthful sensation on the palate, as champagne needs time and some maturity to pour forth its full brilliance. It only has top vintages as reserve wines: 2002, 2004 and 2008, no less. And what about the base wine? The clue is in the name: R.012 represents Récolte 2012, i.e. Vintage 2012. All Vintage Champagne has by law to be 100% from the named vintage, so Francis could not use the word Vintage on his new label. Hence R.012, a multi-vintage champagne based on 2012.
