Pure, precise, fresh. Delicate pink color with slightly blue glints. Lively stream of fine bubbles. The pure, precise bouquet mingles sweet flowers (honeysuckle and lily), slightly acid red fruits (redcurrant, wild strawberry) and citrus zest (mandarin). Warm, deeply reassuring and inviting notes then appear with a smokiness and ripeness typical of Louis Roederer. Precision and purity are echoed on the palate with a crunchy, mature attack of Pinot Noir from the south-facing Cumieres slopes, escorted by the almost acidfreshness of the Chardonnays from the north-facing Chouilly slopes. After aerating for a few moments, the mid-palate comes together in a unique, rounded whole. The flavors of ripe, juicy fruit blend in a texture that is both smooth and fresh, free from heaviness. A sensation of finesse and elegance in the long finish.
Blend: 62% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay
Wine & Spirits - "Roederer invested in a separate winery to produce its rosé, the facility completed in 2007, taking its classic saignée method wines to a new level. An estate-grown blend of pinot noir from the clay soils of Cumières with chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, this is an extraordinary vintage of Roederer Rosé. It’s a lithe wine, compelling for its precision rather than for any stylized complexity. In fact, it feels simple, naked, capturing the freshness of the grapes in pale pink energy. The transparent cherry and Honeycrisp apple flavors are inherently balanced and hard to resist."
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "Simply magnificent, the 2010 Louis Roederer Champagne Rosé is a multi-dimensional wine. From its aromas—wild strawberries, delicate flowers and light chalk—to its persistent flavors and long finish, this is authentic bubbly from the Champagne district. Tasting great now, this wine will age nicely over the next half a dozen years. (Tasted: June 22, 2016, San Francisco, CA)"
Wine Spectator - "A vivacious rosé, marrying a delicate palate of white raspberry, pastry, blanched almond and white cherry flavors with citrusy acidity and an airy mousse. Rich smoke and mineral notes shine on the finish. Drink now through 2025."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The pale-colored 2010 Brut Rosé is wonderfully lifted and aromatically expressive. Sweet floral notes, red berries, hard candy, mint, cranberry and chalk notes grace the palate as this airy, gracious Champagne opens up in the glass. Delicate and feminine in style the 2010 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years."
