Louis Roederer : Rosé Vintage 2010

Champagne - Rosé - 12° Louis Roederer Louis Roederer 2010 3049/10
  • Parker : 92
The bouquet of this Rosé Vintage 2010 of the Champagne House Louis Roederer is very expressive. Wild red berry aromas are followed by floral notes and sweet and spicy fragrances of lemon zest. The nuts and cocoa hints evoke the ageing in oak barrels. It is precise and pure on the palate. The attack is crunchy and riped thanks to a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Pinots Noirs, exposed to the south of Cumières are accompanied by the almost acidulous freshness of the Chardonnay, exposed to the North of Chouilly. The Rosé Vintage 2010 is a rich an fleshy champagne which releases the ripeness of the fruit. With its bright effervescence and its first impression of freshness, it suavely opens up on almost exotic notes, mixed with the pure minerality of the Chardonnays.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 vintage was not suitable to produce a Cristal or a Vintage, but it was good enough to create the rich and full-bodied 2010 Rosé Vintage; this Champagne blends truly ripe and concentrated Pinot Noir from south-facing, wind-protected plots on clay and chalk soils in Cumières with the freshness, elegance and finesse of Chardonnay from north-facing vineyards in Chouilly (Côte des Blancs). Since we are looking for round and silky tannins, we need to have ripe fruits, says Lécaillon. That's why he produces his Pinot like red wine, which means high density plantings (10,000 to 12,000 mass selection vines per hectare), short pruning, leaf removal already ten days after the flowering, sorting table, cold maceration with 5-10% of the stems and a very reduced extraction. After ten days, the must is racked and blended with the juice of Chardonnay. The idea is to 'acidify' our Pinot Noir, which has a ripe fruit with soft and silky tannin,s but a low acidity, explains Lécaillon. The resulting blend (65% Pinot and 35% Chardonnay) was partly raised in large oak casks and 20% underwent malolactic fermentation. The 2010 is round, dry and elegant, with a silky texture, and ripe and intense fruit flavors. It has a fine grip and stimulating freshness in the finish. This is an excellent Rosé.
