Louis Roederer Vintage Rose Gift Boxed - Champagne

Vintage: 2012 Region: France
Type: Champagne/Sparkling
Winery: Louis Roederer
Tasting Notes:

From one of the biggest names in Champagne, this stunning pale pink rosé is all elegance and joy. Fragrant red berries, cherries, delicate floral and backed bread scents skip toward the light palate of strawberry and earthy flavours. Creaminess and fruity acidity bring about a bright, tight and intense finish. Makes a delicious accompaniment to scallops, soft cheeses and desserts with a red fruit base.

A characteristic Roederer rosé: the concentration, fruitiness, and compactness of the Cumières Pinot noir grapes are transcended by the elegance, purity, and freshness of the finest Chardonnay grapes cultivated on the Côte des Blancs.

It is very definitely a Pinot Noir year, exceptionally well-suited to laying down. Sampled with scallops, this wine affirms its food friendliness. Over time, it will also prove wonderful with more substantial dishes including salmon, guinea fowl and pheasant as well as soft cheeses such as Chaource and Brillat-Savarin; or with desserts based on red fruits such as red fruit zabaglione or gratin.

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 official classification scale.

More Notes:
A great Rose Champagne requires very ripe grapes which is not always easy to achieve in Champagne which is why Louis Roederer decided to invest in one of the most precocious vineyards in Champagne, Cumieres in the Vallee de la Marne. There the light of the steep, south-facing clay and limestone slopes is accentuated by the proximity of the Marne River, producing high levels of phenolic maturity.

In the development of its rose Champagnes, Louis Roederer employs the saignee method with fermentation following a cold maceration on skins which can last from 5 to 8 days. 20% of the wines are vinified in oak barrels with weekly batonnage. There is no malo-fermentation.The vintage Rose is matured for 4 years in the cellar with a further six months rest following disgorgement.

The dosage of between 8 - 10gms is adapted slightly for each vintage.
