Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Vintage 2014 in Deluxe Gift Box
From the Maker:
A snapshot of a year, this Rosé comes from 35 small staggered plots on the warm terroirs of our “La Rivière” estate planted with Pinot noir, and the cooler limestone soils where the Chardonnay thrives.
Born mostly from our vines in Cumières, this Rosé benefits from a long and soft infusion of the Pinot noir that allows the extraction of the juice and ripeness all the while preserving this great saline freshness.
Intense and fresh, our Rosé Vintage exudes small, acidic and finely crunchy red fruits. There is flesh and fullness, an expression that is always tactile and greedy. Great freshness, balance and lightness are its attributes, projected in a beautiful satin envelope and a saline perception.
About the Maker:
In 1845, Louis Roederer acquired 15 hectares in the Grand Cru vineyards of Verzenay. The idea—which was quite unusual at a time when grapes had little value—was to become a wine grower in order to master the entire process of creating his vintage wines. Ever since, every Louis Roederer vintage originates exclusively from our own vines, which is rare indeed in the Champagne region. The quest for a diversity of terroirs, crus, parcels, and grape varieties in the vineyards (or climats to use the Burgundian expression) was rapidly integrated by the House of Louis Roederer. A groundbreaking strategy was implemented, which involved buying specific parcels selected for their capacity to produce distinctive wines. This strategy is still a core component of the House’s continuing development.
