Expert Reviews

The 2009 Rose Vintage is 70% Pinot Noir from Cumieres and 30% Chardonnay from Mesnil and Avize. Roughly 12% of the wine is aged in oak. Today the Rose is hard to fully appreciate as the tannins make it rather imposing, but it is very, very early days for this wine. Rating 89 -91 - Amtonio Galloni, In the Cellar (SEP/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

Rosé 2009, which has a salmon pink colour with golden tints, produces a persistent stream of delicate bubbles.

Aroma

It has an intense fruitiness with a blend of red fruits (Morello cherry), blood oranges, and vineyard peach, with acidy, slightly candied notes. After a few minutes, nuances of pastries emerge with some delicate autolysis.

Palate

The attack is round and fruity, marked by grapefruit and citrus zest. Its full body and density are sustained by the almost limestone freshness: the freshness and texture blend to give the wine its persistence. The effervescence integrates well into the juicy and concentrated envelope produced by the exceptionally mature flesh of the Pinot noir fruits. Fine notes of lightly roasted cocoa beans add generosity and create a sensation of harmony.

This 2009 Rosé has all the hallmarks of a fine, sunny vintage, with remarkable purity and finesse.

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.
