Champagne Louis Roederer, makers of Cristal Vintage Champagne, is one of the region's most prestigious houses. Roederer was founded in 1776 in the town of Reims in Champagne and is still an independent family business. This Brut Rosé is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, 20% of which is wine matured in oak tuns without malolactic fermentation; aged for four years in Roederer’s cellars and left for 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity. The wine has fruity aromas of wild red berries, followed by floral notes, and the sugary and spicy fragrance of zest; and the aromas of dried fruit and cocoa result from the wine’s vinifying in oak tuns. Rich and full-bodied, Brut Rosé exalts the maturity of the fruit. A sparkling wine with an initial impression of freshness, it opens smoothly with almost exotic notes, combined with the pure minerality of the Chardonnay grapes.

'This 2009 Rosé has all the hallmarks of a fine, sunny vintage, with remarkable purity and finesse.' — Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master

Wine EnthusiastA blend of grapes from Cumières in the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs, this is a rich, well-balanced and very young brut rosé. It is ripe, while keeping an almost austere texture and acidity that will soften and broaden out as it ages. Drink now for the lively red fruits, but better to wait until 2019.

Wine SpectatorThere's a smoky underpinning to this delicate, lacy rosé, which offers an aromatic mix of ripe strawberry, white peach, spring blossom and biscotti flavors framed by bright, clean-cut acidity. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 447 cases imported.
