Description & Technical Information

As the largest independent family-managed Champagne producer, Louis Roederer rank amongst the region's absolute finest. Established in 1776, the House is currently managed by seventh generation family member Frédéric Rouzaud alongside long-time Chef de Cave and Champagne legend Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. Today, Champagne Louis Roederer own an astounding 240 hectares of vineyards in the very best locations that cover two-thirds of their grape requirements and are pioneers in biodynamic farming, having converted a total of 50% of its holdings to accommodate production using biodynamic methods. Their portfolio begins with Brut Premier, one of Champagne's most seductive non-vintage cuvées and ends with Cristal, perhaps the world's most recognised prestige cuvée champagne.

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. 17% vinified in oak casks. A small percentage of Chardonnay juice is fermented with the Pinot Noir maceration to help with the hamonisation in the final blend.

Weather: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall and a few weeks of high temperatures. On paper it looks like a very solid vintage with good ripeness and acidity. Full flowering began in June. Summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells. Some regions saw some disease and Meunier in the Marne Valley didn’t have a great year and some of the Pinot Noir with its thinner skin made it more difficult for the red grapes. Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September. A year where there was a need to do a lot of careful picking and sorting of the red grapes to maintain the high quality. In general Chardonnay is the star of the vintage with some super good Blanc de Blancs starting to appear on the market. There will be some good champagnes from 2014 and exceptional Blanc de Blancs.

William Kelley
“Wafting from the glass with notes of pear, raspberries and honeycomb, mingled with hints of white flowers and brioche, Roederer's 2014 Brut Vintage Rosé is medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, with fine concentration, brisk acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. Long and penetrating, this is a fabulous cuvée that punches well above its weight, and it comes warmly recommended.”

“63% Pinot Noir, mainly from Cumières, and 37% Chardonnay, mainly from Chouilly – all from Roederer's own vineyards, many of them biodynamically farmed. Roederer is the only champagne house making rosé via 'infusion'. Because Roederer are looking for fruit rather than colour or tannins, they cold-macerate the Pinot grapes for five or six days before fermentation and some Chardonnay juice is added to the cold maceration as chef de cave Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon believes this helps integration of this portion of the blend when it is later blended with the fermented Chardonnay in the spring following harvest. 17% of the wine is fermented in large oak fermenters. The wine spent 5.5 years in bottle on the lees and was disgorged in September 2019 with a dosage of 8 g/l.
It's hardly pink at all! I'd call this colour very pale apricot. Great vitality on the nose and excellent integration so that neither grape component is obvious. Very zesty with a hint of orange peel – definite citrus. More obvious acidity than on the Charles Heidsieck Réserve Rosé NV described in this selection. It's still quite youthful and should have a long life. Complex and almost liqueur-like in its intensity (not in terms of sweetness of which it has hardly any apparently). Perhaps tincture is a better word than liqueur. Bone-dry finish. A fascinating wine that would be worth cellaring for future Februarys. Not a ridiculous price for this quality.

“One of my most favorite - the new vintage 2014 - Rose mainly Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay and texture is always fresh, good one as aperitif”
