2013 Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1420514 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark White fruit immediately on the nose, as well as some very strong lemon and lime notes. Some gently chalky notes, too, from the Chouilly chardonnay, which is super chalky. The palate has such focus and drive and a great, mineral core. Very long with a fresh line of acidity and peripheral, smooth flesh. Some pink grapefruit at the finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A smoothly textured wine, this is perfectly in balance, with red berry and currant fruitiness assimilated into the lightly tannic and crisp texture. Drink from 2019. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Roederer 2013 Rosé has a lovely light pink color and opens with highly delicate red fruit and flowery aromas. The wine is light, fresh, pure, very delicate and stimulatingly salty. Very energetic and at the same time caressing. The finish displays pink grapefruit, blood orange, and lime zest flavors. Highly stimulating in its purity, freshness and citrus character. Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon finds it less vinous than the 2012, but he thinks the 2013 has huge aging potential. Disgorged in January, tasted at the domaine in May 2018. (SR) 92+ Inner quote mark (6/2018)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark In keeping with the talents Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon brings to rosé Champagne, this offers joyous drinking in a serious wine. It’s pale pink in color with a floral highlight to the honey notes and fresh-picked raspberry flavors. A pink-chalk impression lasts, and though this is not at the level of the 2012, it is immediately refreshing and delicious. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh and floral, this delicate rosé features a lithe, lively mousse, with hints of white cherry, peach skin, grated ginger and orchard blossom. Pretty, offering a lingering finish of spice and mineral. Drink now through 2028. (AN) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Gorgeous. Lovely and fresh, salty and fine. A reflection of the Cristal rosé. *Great Value* 17.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

This Champagne is composed of 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay, and is made using an infusion technique that is unique to Champagne Louis Roederer. Like all of the vintage Champagnes from Roederer, this wine is entirely estate, and the plots that historically have been used for the rosé are farmed specifically with that end in mind. For the Pinot Noir, Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has selected the south facing, premier cru amphitheater vineyard of Cumières. This is a village renowned for its red wines and rosés, as it has a very steep, south facing exposition, and sits directly on the Marne river. All the Pinot Noir is macerated with its skins, but with an addition of Chardonnay juice to moderate the extraction of color and to strip out the tannin. The Chardonnay is sourced from north facing sites in the grand cru of Chouilly, at the very top of the Côte des Blancs. -Gary Westby, K&L

The 2013 vintage was a late one in Champagne, with some producers not finishing until the beginning of the second week of October. The great acidity of this cool vintage tempers the ripe power of the Cumières Pinot Noir in this Champagne. I love the coppery, pale rose color of the wine and the tart cherry flavor of the Pinot Noir. This wine has a very nice baguette toast frame, fine, compact streamers and a fabulous, long, mineral driven finish. It is on the back end that I really taste the Chardonnay, it is clean, dry and refreshing, with persistence that one would expect only from a famous vintage.
Drink from 2019 to 2033
