Brut Premier Rosè Louis Roederer 2000
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.
External Reviews for Brut Premier Rosè Louis Roederer
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.
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.
( 74) Pale gold. Suave vibrant floral nose combines spicy quince lemon and white peach and a salty mineral overlay. Brisk nicely focused and pure with finely etched flavors of peach yellow plum and soft citrus fruits complicated by floral honey mint and macadamia nut. Finishes clean brisk and sharply delineated with a subtle note of sweet butter and excellent length. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
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.
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.
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.
