2011 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1286422 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 A blend of grapes from Cumières in the Marne Valley and the Côte des Blancs, this is a rich, well-balanced and very young brut rosé. It is ripe, while keeping an almost austere texture and acidity that will soften and broaden out as it ages. Drink now for the lively red fruits, but better to wait until 2019. (RV)  (12/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator

 There's a smoky underpinning to this delicate, lacy rosé, which offers an aromatic mix of ripe strawberry, white peach, spring blossom and biscotti flavors framed by bright, clean-cut acidity. Drink now through 2021. (AN, Web-2016)

Louis Roederer continues to be one of my favorite, go to grand marque Champagnes. This vintage rosé is everything that I am looking for in pink Champagne - bright, crunchy red berry flavors, well integrated acidity, dosage and bubbles, and a well defined minerality which I find present in all of Louis Roederer Champagnes. The difference in their vintage dated wines is added intensity on the mid-palate and more length on the finish. Well worth the price, I find this to be one of our better values in vintage, grand marque Champagne!

2011 may have been a difficult vintage, but it does not show in this rose from Louis Roederer. Ripe red fruits and blood orange are paired with floral, toast and orchard fruits. The refreshing acidity is in perfect balance with the complex flavors and aromas in this Champagne and can be enjoyed now or cellared for a few more years.

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.
