2007 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1109413 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Top 100 Wines of 2012* A structured, crisp and mineral-driven wine, this merely hints at raspberry flavors but is dedicated to a steely character. That suggests youth, and the wine, with its tense texture, could well age over several more years. For now, this is an impressive wine that demands pairing with food.  (12/ 2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Finely knit, with a delicate bead and racy acidity framing subtle flavors of ripe cherry, spiced plum, pink grapefruit zest and hints of brioche and date. Very focused, yet elegant, with a minerally finish. Drink now through 2027.  (11/ 2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light orange-pink. Bright, energetic aromas of candied red fruits, orange zest and buttered toast, with a suave floral nuance gaining strength with air. Juicy, precise raspberry and cherry flavors show a light touch and are given spine by tangy acidity. Closes zesty and long, with lingering floral and spice notes.  (11/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Roederer's 2007 saignee Brut Rosé is composed from 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay harvested under excellent conditions at the end of August after a weird, but wine-friendly growing season, with 20% of the wine matured in oak barrels and weekly lees stirring. The wine then aged for four years in the cellar and another six months after disgorgement, a final detail that completes the aging process. With Roederer's telltale delicacy, this elegant but full-bodied Champagne fills the mouth with layers of red fruits, with a touch of citrus and spice.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
