Louis Roederer Rose
Description & Technical Information
-
A great Rosé champagne must be made from very ripe grapes – sometimes difficult to obtain in the Champagne climate. As a result, Louis Roederer has chosen to invest in one of the earliest Champagne crus villages, Cumières, for which the steeply-sloping, shallow clay and limestone soils face south and benefit from additional light reflected from the river Marne, enabling great phenolic maturity to be achieved. In these select terroirs, Louis Roederer applies the precision wine-making methods required to craft a saignée rosé. The Chardonnay is from the north facing slopes in Chouilly, bringing bright and fresh notes.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 90% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 63% Pinot Noir, 27% Chardonnay
Ageing: 4 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l
Vinified in oak casks: 24%
Drink: Now to 2027

Tasting Note: A exceptionally refined and lively Rosé with persistant stream of bubbles. A bouquet of blackcurrants and candied orange peel. The palate is well rounded and smooth with great vivacity. Hazelnuts, cocoa with light citrus. A remarkably fresh wine with bright acidity.
