Concernant le Champagne Louis Roederer Rosé Vintage 2011
A characteristic Roederer rosé: the concentration, fruitiness, and compactness of the Cumières Pinot noir grapes are transcended by the elegance, purity, and freshness of the finest Chardonnay grapes cultivated on the Côte des Blancs.
A blend of around 65% Pinot noir and 35% Chardonnay, 20% of which is wine matured in oak tuns, the Rosé Vintage cuvée is generally matured on lees for 4 years and left for a minimum of 6 months after dégorgement (disgorging) to attain perfect maturity.
The wine has fruity aromas of wild red berries, followed by floral notes, and the sugary and spicy fragrance of zest; and the aromas of dried fruit and cocoa result from the wine’s vinifying in oak tuns. Rich and full-bodied, the Rosé Vintage exalts the maturity of the fruit. A sparkling wine with an initial impression of freshness, it opens smoothly with almost exotic notes, combined with the pure minerality of the Chardonnay grapes.
The challenge of the 2011 Rosé, a difficult vintage for ripeness in Champagne, is perfectly met thanks to the Pinots noirs from south-facing Cumières, and the small yields which helped these grapes reach perfect ripeness.
Whether you wish to offer or to treat yourself, champagne ROSE 2011 from ROEDERER is presented in a superb and free gift case.
