Michel Loriot "Theodorine" Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1110491

This all estate-grown rosé is composed of 45% Meunier, 40% Chardonnay and 15% red wine from Loriot's special Pinot Noir vineyard. It is based on the 2009 harvest with a little bit of reserve wines from 2008 and has nine grams per liter of dosage. It has a very pretty strawberry color and an expressive nose of clean, ripe red fruit and a touch of cinnamon. Soft and pleasant in the mouth, this is quite delicate and balanced rosé with a touch of good Loriot spice. This has plenty of depth for such an easy-to-like wine! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

New Package, new look, same amazing Rose Champagne from Michel Loriot. They have always been a personal favorite of mine bringing us great values for their amazing juice! Definitely under the radar in the Champagne world and I hope it stays that way, because this is a steal! Gorgeous light pink salmon in the glass, delicate bead, bright minerals and slightly wild berry fruit flavors with a clean yet decadent finish. Enjoy with a loved one

I love drinking Champagne on Tuesdays! I had prepared a merguez tagine with plenty of pimenton ahumado and large pearl cous-cous for dinner, and started to scratch my head over what to pair with it. It was going to be too spicy for anything tannic, yet the lamb in the sausage called out for some red wine flavors... Rose! Rose was the answer. But it is the middle of winter, and all of the still rose is sold! Rose Champagne! Rose Champagne is the answer! The Michel Loriot Rose was perfect, with lots of red wine richness from the 20% Pinot in the blend, but also great snap from the Loriot policy of no malolactic. The very ripe strawberry fruit in this wine was brought into perfect balance by the powerful finish. Try it out the next time you whip up something spicy!

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. 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.
