Louis Roederer Brut Rosé 2009

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

A great rosé champagne must be made from very ripe grapes, which are sometimes difficult to obtain in the Champagne climate. As a result, Louis Roederer has chosen to invest in one of the earliest Champagne crus, Cumières, for which the steeply-sloping, shallow clay and limestone soils face south and benefit from the additional light reflected from the river Marne, enabling phenolic maturity to be achieved. In these select terroirs, Louis Roederer applies the precise winemaking methods required for the production of a saignée rosé. The style of this rosé is elegant, full-bodied and with delicate fruitiness (red fruits). Brut Rosé is 100% estate-bottled from the grapes of the historic family-owned vineyards. Sampled with scallops, this wine once again confirms its gourmet qualities. We recommend opening it a good hour before drinking, keeping it cool, to enjoy its full potential.

Wine SpectatorTangy raspberry and black cherry fruit is underscored by smoke and mineral accents in this finely knit, racy rosé Champagne. Mouthwatering, with hints of apple blossom, lemon zest and creamed almond on the finish. Drink now through 2029.

Wine & Spirits"This delicate style of saignée Champagne is a Roederer specialty; the firm completed a new cellar in 2008 with a sole focus on rosé. What sets Roederer rosé apart is the beautiful freshness of a wine like this 2009. Its color is a light orange gold rather than pink or red. Its scent hints at pink grapefruit, the flavors ripe and tangy, deepening to red fruit."

Wine EnthusiastThe latest vintage of Roederer Rosé shows all the finesse of which this producer is capable. It has fruit & the merest touches of bottle age. Red berries shine alongside the mineral texture and the pure line crisp acidity. Beautiful Champagne that could age longer.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.
