Winemaker's Notes

"Sweet nose of caramel, light yeast and apple. Very creamy entry with a meld of malty beer flavors and a nice integration of lemon-lime acidity. Focused with a ribbon of caramel and butter that linger throughout the spicy close."-Wine News

Louis Roederer Vintage Rosé is a unique and rare Champagne of exceptional style thanks to the very particular way in which it is made. Indeed, Louis Roederer is one of the few Houses that still use maceration on skins, a delicate method by which Pinot Noir grapes are left to macerate on the press for several hours to extract more fruit and colour. Skin maceration requires highly concentrated and aromatic grapes that only grow on the very old vines of Cumieres and only in exceptional vintages. Blend: 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Maturation: an average of four years ageing on lees, plus more read more...than six months after disgorging. Dosage: 11-12g/L of sugar from the dosage liqueur. Tasting notes: Deepish pink appearance. Berry aromas (strawberries, redcurrants and cherries), followed by scents of plants mixed with warmer notes of jam and gingerbread. Generously vinous attack. Honeyed fruit flavours followed by more complex toasty and woody impressions. Choice of food: thanks to its structure and vinosity, Louis Roederer Brut Rosé; is an excellent accompaniment to meals and the perfect accompaniment to fish or meats (lamb, veal, guinea-fowl or even pheasant). To round off the meal, Brut Rose is an ideal complement to creamy cheeses or a soft fruit pudding. (hide)
