Brut Premier Rosè Louis Roederer 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

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 Cumieres 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: Deepish pink appearance. Berry aromas (strawberries, redcurrants and cherries), followed by scents of plants mixed with warmer notes of jam and gingerbread. Generously vinous attack. Honeyed fruit flavours followed by more complex toasty and woody impressions. Choice of food: thanks to its structure and vinosity, Louis Roederer Brut Rosé; is an excellent accompaniment to meals and the perfect accompaniment to fish or meats (lamb, veal, guinea-fowl or even pheasant). To round off the meal, Brut Rose is an ideal complement to creamy cheeses or a soft fruit pudding.

The distinctive qualities of each parcel are the result of great respect for nature. Louis Roederer’s philosophy is shared by Philippe Starck: both are engaged in a quest for authenticity.   The harvest from each parcel is pressed and vinified separately. Over the months, the wine is tasted and analysed by the oenologists; this provides them with an extensive aromatic palette that gives them a rich choice and enables them to develop blends under the watchful eye of the Cellar Master, Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. This quest for authenticity matches Philippe Starck’s desire to collaborate on the development of a unique, finely tuned, and authentic cuvée. They decided to draw inspiration from river wines to create a straightforward, medium-dry, terroir-based champagne. Consequently, every measure was taken on the south-facing parcels of Pinot noir to nurture grapes that would attain great maturity, in order to obtain an excellent fruit that would require very minor corrective measures.

Sein Bukett kann als das eines besonders reifen Weines beschrieben werden, mit Aromen von kleinen roten Früchten, Vanille und süßem Hefebrot, insgesamt hat er eine sehr komplexe Struktur und einen langen Abgang.

One of the finest Champagnes I have ever brought to my lips, the 1999 Cristal bursts from the glass with fresh hazelnut and apple scents. Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish.

This goes for personality and finesse. An assertive, honeyed style, with plenty of citrus flavors. Mature coffee and roasted nut accents are peeking through, with a robust structure and a dried citrus aftertaste. Drink now through 2018.

A paradox. This has weight yet a sensation of weightlessness thanks to its seemless texture and harmony. Still firm and forceful yet elegant, offering citrus, pastry, biscuit and hazelnut notes enmeshed in the creamy texture. Great structure for aging. Drink now through 2015.

Founded in 1776, Roederer took over in 1833 and began producing some of the world's finest champagne. Toast and vanilla are prevalent in this high class quaff.

Intriguing and complex, with enticing aromas of fig, butter and toast, backed by mouth-filling flavors of pear, cream and apple. Long on the finish, too. Gorgeous, refined and balanced. Drinkable now through 1997.

Young, clean and restrained. Deep toasty notes well up with time in the glass, but the feeling is that this sparkler will really start to shine in five years. Complex and full-bodied, this venerable house has hit its grand mark once again.
