Overview

This concentrated yet fresh Rosé 2007, the product of August harvests, is a good example of “Roederer style” rosés with all the concentration, fruitiness and compactness of Pinot Noir de Cumières, transcended by the elegance, purity and freshness of great Côte des Blancs Chardonnays... Real Burgundy overtones in Champagne territory!

Winery Tasting Notes

Assemblage

66% Pinot noir – 34% Chardonnay – 20% wines matured in wood (oak barrels) with weekly batonnage – No malolactic fermentation. To make its rosé champagnes, Louis Roederer always uses the saignée method.

Appearance

An evanescent light pink colour, with shiny salmony hints. Delicate bubbles, which quickly form a steady, creamy flow.

Aroma

The intense deep bouquet reveals a succession of finely complex aromatic “layers”: first of all fruity, almost tart aromas of wild raspberry and bilberry, reminiscent of a mountain fruit sabayon; next, sweet, warm, delicately rosy “pink macaroon” floral hints,along with pithy citrus, orange and pink grapefruit; finally, there are warm, sweet, spicy notes, recalling the subtle use made of oak wood by Louis Roederer: hints of lightly toasted dried fruits,

cocoa and chocolate.

Palate

It has a lively bite in the mouth – full-bodied, creamy, dense and balanced: a “gourmet” treat! The tactile approach of the ripe Pinot Noir is very clear: rich and meaty, concentrated but not at all heavy, a combination of ripe fruit and precise, fresh flavours. The delicate, almost teasing bubbles add to this suave impression, which literally encompasses the sharp freshness. Following this first highly seductive contact, the “tight”, “sculpted” winy structure of the Pinot Noir appears once more, along with almost jam-like fruity, floral flavours, blending in perfectly with the minerality and freshness of the Chardonnays.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Champagne Louis Roederer, founded in 1776, remains one of the very rare family Champagne businesses. For two centuries, six succeeding generations have been inspired by the same concern for quality. Frederic Rouzaud took up the reins in early 2006 from his father Jean-Claude Rouzaud who remains Chairman of the Board. Jean-Claude, grandson of Madame Camille Olry-Roederer and himself a trained Oenologist had led the company for 38 years, and is referred to as the 'Sage' of Champagne (the wise man of Champagne).

Frederic has spent the past 10 years working with his father in all areas of production and business and will bring his great business acumen and academic background to the company. Louis Roederer is unique in Champagne owning two-thirds of the vineyards for their total production covering the Pinot Noir sub regions of "Montagne de Reims" and "Vallee de la Marne" with Chardonnay from the "Cotes des Blanc". By 1995, recent acquisitions had increased Louis Roederer's holding from 180 hectares to almost 190 hectares, ranking 97.5% on the offi cial classifi cation scale.
