Winemaker 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.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
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.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
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.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Louis Roederer, Champagne, France
2005 Brut Rose
Uncompromising Quality
Champagne Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 in Reims, France and is one of the rare family owned companies, which is still managed by the Roederer family. In 1833, Louis Roederer inherited the company from his uncle and renamed the company under his namesake. Under his leadership, the company rapidly grew while remaining true to their philosophy of uncompromising quality. Today, the company is under the helm of Jean-Claude Rouzaud and his son Frédéric who continue to place quality before quantity.

First-Rate Vineyards
Champagne Louis Roederer is one of the only French champagne producers to own nearly 75 percent of the grapes in the most desirable vineyards in the Champagne. The property is located on 450 acres in the finest villages of Montagne de Reims, Côtes des Blancs, and Valleé de la Marne. Each region is selected to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with the elegance needed for perfectly balanced champagne. The Louis Roederer vineyards rate an average 98 percent based on France’s statutory 100-point classification scale.

The reserve wine is then tasted and graded by a team of Roederer specialists. They choose as many as 40 different wines from several lots for the blend. For the final touch, the wine is then added in order to enhance the cuvee and guarantee consistency while retaining the champagne's characteristics.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
