Profile

Louis Roederer's 2016 Vintage Rosé is made exclusively from the vineyard of "La Rivière", an illustrious terroir located in the communes of Cumières and Chouilly.

The wine is a beautiful salmon hue, the colour reveals brilliant red reflections. The effervescence is lively and delicate. The intensely aromatic nose blends fruity fragrances (vine peach, redcurrant) and citrus fruit (blood orange) with delicious notes of red Roussillon apricot. The concentrated and smooth palate reveals a superb freshness and a silky feel. Fruity aromas (vine peach, nectarine) and citrus fruit (lemon) stretch out elegantly to a long finish.

"« A deep and fruity rosé that encapsulates the exceptional ripeness and intensity of a dry, bright continental summer ! » " Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon, Cellar Master.

Critic Awards

Fantastic aroma of Mara des Bois strawberries. Very juicy with an explosion of strawberries and ripe nectarines. Stunning vitality due to the bright and fine mousse plus the lively acidity. Long and elegant finish that pulls you back for more. A cuvee of 60% pinot noir from Cumieres and 40% chardonnay from Chouilly. . From biodynamically grown grapes.

Finely mature, this bottling is just right. Its fruit has softened and a touch of toastiness has come through to give great balance. The Champagne is totally ready to drink.

Firm and focused, this finely knit version offers a satiny texture and hints of smoke and oyster shell, which underscore flavors of pureed raspberry, peach skin and blood orange granita, with a rich touch of toasted brioche. Long, lightly spiced finish. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

It is floral and primary with aromas of fresh rose petal, pure raspberry, and fresh peach. Medium-bodied, the palate is refined, with an elegant mousse, and the wine is clean, fruity, and fresh, with a note of orange. Revealing a lovely, fresh texture as well as great finesse and elegance, it’s inviting now and should have a good life ahead of it over the next 15 or so years. However, it may not be the longest-lived of the Louis Roederer wines.

The 2016 Brut Rosé is charming. Soft and inviting, the 2016 will drink beautifully right out of the gate. Readers will find a beautifully perfumed, gracious Rosé. The 2016 is not the richest or most complex vintage Rosé Roederer has released lately, but it is impeccably balanced and very easy to enjoy for its sensual personality. If I have one critique, is that the dosage feels a bit high.
