Roederer Brut Vintage Rosé Champagne
Louis Roederer Vintage Rosé
is a unique and rare Champagne of exceptional style
thanks to the very particular way in which it is made.
Indeed, Louis Roederer is one of the few Houses that
still use maceration on skins, a delicate method by
which Pinot Noir grapes are left to macerate on the
press for several hours to extract more fruit and colour.
Skin maceration requires highly concentrated and aromatic
grapes that only grow on the very old vines of Cumières
and only in exceptional vintages.
Blend: 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay.
Maturation: an average of four years ageing on lees,
plus more than six months after disgorging.
Dosage: 11-12g/L of sugar from the dosage liqueur.
Tasting notes: Salmon-pink appearance with coppery highlights.
Rich nose with fresh fruit (blackcurrant, bilberry)
mingled with aromas of cocoa and mocha coffee. Strong,
fruity palate with flavours of Morello cherry and gingerbread.
A fresh and persistent finish.
Choice of food: Brut Vintage Rosé pairs well
with fish such as salmon, with meats such as lamb, veal
or guinea-fowl, and with mild, creamy cheeses. It also
complements desserts that are not overly sweet, such
as fresh red berries with zabaglione cream.
