Winemaker Notes

The Louis Roederer Vintage Rosé is a unique type of Champagne. Roederer is one of the few houses to still use skin maceration in its winemaking. This is a delicate method that consists of letting Pinot Noirs macerate several hours on the press to extract more fruit and color. This process requires very concentrated and aromatic Pinot Noir grapes that come from the very old vines of the Cumières.

The wine is salmon pink in color,... View More

Critical Acclaim

W&S 96
Wine & Spirits

This wine comes from two pinot noir vineyards in Ay, including La Bonotte, where Roederer farms the old vines biodynamically. The rose gains its color from skin contact during a five-day cold maceration and the start of fermentation before it is racked off the skins. The final blend includes 40 percent chardonnay, from Mesnil-sur-Oger and Avize. Effortlessly chic, this develops layers of complexity as it sheds the stemminess of its youthful pinot noir character. The flavor of tiny fraises de bois, combines with fennel, tangerine and floral notes in a powerful wine suited to a decade or more of age.

The Wine Advocate

The 2000 Cristal Rose emerges from the glass in a stunning display of well-articulated aromas and flavors. Everything in is perfect balance as this perfumed wine opens up in the glass in a style that recalls the weightless transparency of a great Burgundy. The finish is long, sweet and incredibly refined. I came back to the bottle several hours after opening, and the wine had blossomed into an extraordinary Champagne. In 2000 the Brut Cristal Rose is 70% Pinot Noir from Ay and 30% Chardonnay from Mesnil, Avize and Oger. Roughly 15% of the wine was aged in oak. This is Lot: L029898D100064, disgorged February 1st, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.

Wine Enthusiast

Orange-pink in color, this a super-rich rosé. The flavors are of orange zest, citrus and red currants, with a beautiful contrast of hazelnuts. The texture, round and succulent, is still able to offer minerality and a crisp aftertaste.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Pink with an orange rim and a vigorous mousse. Deep cherry, berry skin, spiced nuts and flowers on the nose, brightened by blood orange and smoky minerals. Taut, finely etched red berry and citrus flavors gain flesh with air, taking a turn to bitter cherry, toffee apple and yellow plum. Sappy, lightly chewy and concentrated, with a long, spicy finish. Changed continually in the glass but maintained an impressive, nervy precision, suggesting that it will reward cellaring.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

This is very fruity, boasting apple, cherry and berry flavors, making it open and approachable. There's concentration as well, with a vibrant structure and a berry aftertaste.
