Brut Rosé 2012
“A Roederer-style rosé: the concentration, fruitiness and density of the Cumières Pinot Noir are transcended by the elegance, purity and freshness of the great Chardonnays from the Côte des Blancs. – Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master
The Magnum format is a large 1.5 litres bottle, which represents 2 bottles of champagne or 12 glasses. This large format, presented in its luxurious box, is ideal for your receptions, dinners, special occasions and gifts.
Golden pink colour, with bright red reflections. Ultra-fine, dynamic effervescence, creating a regular, persistent string of bubbles.
Intense bouquet of ripe fruit (blackcurrant), candied orange accompanied by light hints of orange blossom and Madagascar vanilla. The bouquet is very stable and solid: it opens slowly and holds the note in this deep and sweet register.
Round, fleshy and ample attack. A rather solar expression, both tactile (silky texture) and spherical (ripe, sweet anthocyanins, almost liquor-like), but prolonged by a chalky and fresh finish. This is followed by hints of hazelnut and cocoa bean. The decision not to carry out malolactic fermentation was decisive in order to simultaneously retain a very great freshness that lightens and lengthens the tasting.
Blend : 63% Pinot Noir - 37% Chardonnay - 15% of the wine is vinified in oak casks, no malolactic fermentation. To produce its rosé champagnes, Louis Roederer always uses the bleeding method after a cold skin maceration that can last 5 to 8 days in the liquid phase.
Vinification : A great Rosé Champagne must be made from grapes that have reached a good level of maturity, which is sometimes difficult to obtain in the Champagne climate. This is why Louis Roederer chose to invest in Cumières, where the shallow clay-limestone soils, benefiting from a full southern exposure and the luminosity enhanced by the Marne River, allow a high phenolic maturity to be reached. Over the years, Louis Roederer has developed a way of producing its rosé champagnes that is unique in Champagne. Called "infusion" in the House, it allows to extract the juicy and ripe side of the Pinots Noirs while preserving a great freshness. Thus, some Chardonnay juices are poured into a Pinot Noir maceration, to ferment together and integrate perfectly. The 2012 Rosé was aged for 4 years on lees and also benefits from a minimum of 6 months rest after disgorgement to perfect its maturity.
Dosage : 9 g/litre
Characteristics : The year 2012 :The year 2012 was one of the most difficult and delicate years ever encountered in Champagne. Difficulty often gives birth to great things... The low yields, the result of climatic hazards, combined with these continental conditions at the end of the season, allowed us to reach a rare and historic level of maturity, giving birth to rich, full-bodied and structured wines, worthy of the greatest vintages of the Champagne region.
