Louis Roederer Estate Brut Rose


winemaker's notes:

Like the Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut, the Roederer Estate Rosé is untraditional. While most rosés are made with more Pinot Noir than Chardonnay, the Roederer Estate Rosé is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Charodnnay. For color, the winemaker prepares a small portion of Pinot Noir with extended maceration and adds about 5% to the blend before secondary fermentation, imparting a subtle salmon tinge. Both the 60/40 blend and addition of the small amount of red wine create a charming wine of discreet finesse.

As with all Roederer Estate wines, the Brut Rosé is 100% estate grown. Oak-aged wines from the Estate's reserve cellars are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuvée in the traditional Roederer style.

The Roederer Estate Rosé is full and round with smooth flavors and a fine, persistent mousse. The extra measure of Chardonnay contributes elegance and austerity that balance nicely with the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir.

critical acclaim:

"Although possessing the extra depth and density that a good Rosé should, this very lively, full-flavored rendition shows subtle shadings of age that bring it a real sense of distinctive complexity. Its undisguised yeast and suggestions of toast are juxtaposed with a pushy streak of tart, cherry-like fruit, and, as has been the usual Roederer way with sparkling wine, this one is very long and very crisp on the palate with plenty of bracing acidity."

Connoisseurs' Guide

"Full-bodied and rich, this slightly orange-colored bubbly offers forward flavors of cherry vanilla and Chardonnay with mashed ripe strawberries. It's very good, an addictively drinkable bubbly that finishes clean, dry and yeasty. "
