A great Rosé champagne must be made from very ripe grapes – sometimes difficult to obtain in the Champagne climate. As a result, Louis Roederer has chosen to invest in one of the earliest Champagne crus villages, Cumières, for which the steeply-sloping, shallow clay and limestone soils face south and benefit from additional light reflected from the river Marne, enabling great phenolic maturity to be achieved. In these select terroirs, Louis Roederer applies the precision wine-making methods required to craft a saignée rosé. The Chardonnay is from the north facing slopes in Chouilly, bringing bright and fresh notes. Light, golden pink in colour with fine, delicate bubbles and aromas of red fruits, cocoa and dried flowers. On the palate there is an immediate concentration of flowers and blood orange, bringing a sensation of luxurious richness as well as tangy freshness.
