Wafting from the glass with notes of pear, raspberries and honeycomb, mingled with hints of white flowers and brioche, Roederer’s 2014 Brut Vintage Rose is medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, with fine concentration, brisk acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. Long and penetrating, this is a fabulous cuvee that punches well above its weight, and it comes warmly recommended.
Drink Date: 2020 – 2040
A Rose of superb energy, which still combines great aromatic finesse with a unique strength of character, a blend of saline freshness and a lovely plump body.
THE ENERGY OF OUR ESTATE OF “LA RIVIERE”
A snapshot of a year, this Rose comes from 35 small staggered plots on the warm terroirs of our La Riviere estate planted with Pinot noir, and the cooler limestone soils where the Chardonnay thrives.
A ROS? OF INFUSION
Born mostly from our vines in Cumieres, this Rose 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.
AN EXCEPTIONNAL FRUITINESS
Intense and fresh, our Rose 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.
