Winemaker Notes:  The Roederer Estate Brut Rose is full and round with smooth flavors and fine persistent bubbles. The extra measure of Chardonnay contributes elegance and austerity, which balance nicely with the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine & Spirits - "Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon grows some of the most beautiful rosés in Champagne, focusing on pinot noir in the clay soils of Cumières, and on the careful and precise extraction of color from the skins of the grapes. This is a wine that’s discreet in its ripeness, delicate in its fragrance, hinting at roses and the blossoms that will become red fruits. Even so, it’s formidable in its flavor depth, and an able partner for rillettes, whether made from salmon or duck. "


Wine Enthusiast - "A 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. "


John Gilman - "The 2011 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Vintage is composed of a blend of sixty-five percent pinot noir and thirty-five percent chardonnay, with a quarter of the vins clairs barrel-fermented. The wine spent four-plus years aging sur latte and was disgorged in 2016. Given that pinot noir here comes from the sun-bowl of Cumières, the moderate ripeness of the vintage is nicely offset in this wine, which is one of the strongest examples of the vintage that I have tasted. The wine is its customary very pale salmon color and offers up a really lovely bouquet of peach, a touch of strawberry, gentle spice tones, orange zest, a complex base of soil and gentle hints of the smokiness that will come with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is pure, full and complex, with a lovely core, a great sense of elegance out of the blocks, refined mousse and lovely focus and grip on the seamlessly balanced finish. A superb bottle in the making and a transcendental 2011! 92+"


Vinous - "The 2013 Brut Rosé Vintage is gracious, perfumed and lifted. Sweet floral notes and red berry fruit are finely sketched in a Rosé that emphasizes energy and persistence. There is plenty of depth to the 2013, but it is more implied rather than overtly stated, as is the case with the 2012. Readers who enjoy subtle, nuanced Roses will find much to admire. "
