Louis Roederer Vintage Rose 2012
Louis Roederer Vintage Rose 2012, Comprising 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay of which 24% has seen maturation in oak, Jean-Baptiste allows it time that delivers a mature and worthy example of the single Vintage Rose Champagne. Defining bold rose characters and balancing freshness and vibrancy of carefully blended Chardonnay. Beautiful Pale Salmon hue simply hints at its complex layers of flavours that develop as the temp slowly warms,.a great pairing with food and canapes alike.
"The exceptional maturity of the 2012 vintage is evident in the wine’s rich fruit and a rounded character. "
"The wine has fruity aromas of wild red berries, followed by floral notes, and the sugary and spicy fragrance of zest; and the aromas of dried fruit and cocoa result from the wine’s vinifying in oak tuns. Rich and full-bodied, the Rosé Vintage exalts the maturity of the fruit. A sparkling wine with an initial impression of freshness, it opens smoothly with almost exotic notes, combined with the pure minerality of the Chardonnay grapes.” www.louis-roederer.com
