« A characteristic Roederer rosé: the concentration,
fruitiness, and compactness of the Cumières Pinot noir
grapes are transcended by the elegance, purity, and
freshness of the finest Chardonnay grapes cultivated on
the Côte des Blancs. »
An evanescent light pink color, with shiny salmony hints.
Delicate bubbles, which quickly form a steady, creamy flow.
The intense deep bouquet reveals a succession of finely
complex aromatic 'layers.'
First of all fruity, almost tart aromas of wild raspberry and
bilberry, reminiscent of a mountain fruit sabayon.
Next, sweet, warm, delicately rosy 'pink macaroon' floral hints,
along with pithy citrus, orange and pink grapefruit.
Finally, there are warm, sweet, spicy notes recalling the subtle
use made of oak wood by Louis Roederer: hints of lightly
toasted dried fruits, cocoa and chocolate. It has a lively bite in
the mouth – full-bodied, creamy, dense and balanced:
a 'gourmet' treat! The tactile approach of the ripe Pinot Noir is
very clear: rich and meaty, concentrated but not at all heavy, a
combination of ripe fruit and precise, fresh flavors.
The delicate, almost teasing bubbles add to this suave
impression, which literally encompasses the sharp freshness.
Following this first highly seductive contact, the 'tight,'
'sculpted' winy structure of the Pinot Noir appears once more,
along with almost jam-like fruity, floral flavors, blending in
perfectly with the minerality and freshness of the Chardonnays.
Wine Spectator - "Finely knit, with a delicate bead and
flavors of ripe cherry, spiced plum, pink grapefruit zest
and hints of brioche and date. Very focused, yet elegant,
with a minerally finish. Drink now through 2027."
Wine & Spirits - "The impact of this rose's freshness is
immediate in the color, a light, copper-tinged pink
refinement. What challenges the vintage may have
presented come across in a little coarseness to the
fragrant woodland strawberry flavor, or the massive
streak of acidity that will appeal most to geeks who
realize the extremity of the structure makes this an
unbeatable match for a soupe de poisson, or the pink
flesh of grilled langoustines."
Champagne Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 in Reims,
France and is one of the rare family owned companies, which
is still managed by the Roederer family. In 1833, Louis
Roederer inherited the company from his uncle and renamed
the company under his namesake. Under his leadership, the
company rapidly grew while remaining true to their philosophy
of uncompromising quality. Today, the company is under the
helm of Jean-Claude Rouzaud and his son Frédéric who
continue to place quality before quantity.
Champagne Louis Roederer is one of the only French
champagne producers to own nearly 75 percent of the grapes
in the most desirable vineyards in the Champagne. The
property is located on 450 acres in the finest villages of
Montagne de Reims, Côtes des Blancs, and Valleé de la
Marne. Each region is selected to produce Chardonnay and
Pinot Noir with the elegance needed for perfectly balanced
champagne. The Louis Roederer vineyards rate an average
98 percent based on France’s statutory 100-point classification
The reserve wine is then tasted and graded by a team of
Roederer specialists. They choose as many as 40 different
wines from several lots for the blend. For the final touch, the
wine is then added in order to enhance the cuvee and
guarantee consistency while retaining the champagne's
