Louis Roederer Champagne Brut Rose Champagne 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright orange-pink. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas are complicated by notes of candied rose, toasty lees and minerals. Densely packed and lively, offering sappy raspberry and blood orange flavors and a touch of rose pastille that gains strength with air. Closes with excellent clarity and cut, leaving suave floral and smoky mineral notes behind. I like the mix of power and finesse here...92" IWC 11/13

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.

Lachsrosa Farbe. Das Bukett ist voll und reif: Aromen von roten und schwarzen Beeren, von eingemachten Früchten und von gezuckerten Geléefrüchten. Kraft und Fülle am Gaumen mit vollem und cremigem Eindruck. Überwiegend Aromen von roten Früchten, die durch Noten von Akazienblüten und Trockenfrüchten (Haselnüsse und Mandeln) abgerundet sind.
