    Winemaker's Notes:

    Salmon pink color with orangey-red glints. The bouquet exudes the exuberance of Pinot Noir from the southern Cumières slopes: there is a burst of fresh, sweet red fruits, accompanied by oral (acacia) and mineral hints with grilled and smoked overtones, brought together to form a very full combination which is fresh, rich and refined. On the palate, there is immediately a burst of fresh, sweet fruit, with a tasty, crisp and mellow texture. The sometimes disturbing magic of great Pinot Noirs is put to work delicately here: The flavors are rich, fresh and intense with pure aromas, literally enveloped in soft, silky tannins... which are then transformed into ultimate elegance thanks to the wonderful mineral freshness! This Rosé 2005, with its incredible aromatic persistence, is racy, generous and sophisticated. A real treat!

    The structure and richness of Louis Roederer Brut Rosé make it a perfect accompaniment to main courses, magnificently complementing fish such as salmon; meat such as lamb, veal, guinea fowl and even pheasant; and soft cheeses such as Chaource and Brillat-Savarin. It can also be served with red-fruit based desserts that are less sweet, such as a red fruit zabaglione or a red fruit gratin.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a crisp, high-wire-walking wine, just so poised. Its youthful red fruits, laced with citrus, taste so fresh, with a strawberry bite. At this stage, it is intensely enjoyable as young Champagne, but it does need to age for several years.

    The 2005 Brut Rose is a gorgeous wine blessed with compelling inner perfume, layers of subtle yet expressive fruit and phenomenal balance. Clean, chalky notes frame a precise, crystalline finish. This mid-weight Champagne can be enjoyed on its own or with food. It is a relative bargain considering the quality of what is in the glass and considering the prohibitive pricing of Cristal Rose. This is Lot L033331G100002, disgorged November, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

    A lovely, generous rose, this is not as structured as Roederer's 2004's, but it is a fine wine in its own right. It shows the kind of pure red fruit clarity that is rare in the vintage, along with complex hints of mushroom. Tangy acidity contrasts the wine's full flavor, bringing it to a dry finish.

    Light, bright pink. High-pitched citrus and red berry fruits on the nose, with notes of rose, toasty lees and baking spices gaining strength with aeration. Nervy, dry and precise, offering fresh raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and an exotic candied rose quality. The long, mineral-accented finish features a late note of cinnamon. Give this a couple of years to flesh out.
