The Roederer style has become drier as the fruit has become riper and this finely balanced Champagne is a fine example. Tautly textured and with great freshness allied to the mineral fruitiness, this wine just hints at tannins as it moves towards maturity. (RV)
The Cumières signature that is always found in the Louis Roederer vintage Brut Rosé is very much apparent in this excellent 2014 version, as this village always produced a riper interpretation of the grape and which works so beautifully in Rosés. The cépages this year is its customary blend of 70% Pinot Noir from very chalky vineyards in Cumières and 30% Chardonnay from the village of Cuis in the Côte des Blancs. Twenty percent of the vins clairs this year are aged in larger oak casks prior to blending and bottling. The wine offers up a beautiful young bouquet of tart strawberries, peach, sourdough bread, a touch of caraway seed, a beautiful base of chalky soil tones and a discreetly smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a fine core, excellent soil signature, elegant mousse and a very long, very pure and classy finish. This is approachable today, but it will really be a waste of bottles to not give it a few more years of bottle age prior to really drinking it with abandon!
Rapierlike acidity creates a mouthwatering frame for flavors of steeped peach and raspberry fruit, lemon pastry cream and Marcona almond in this harmonious rosé Champagne, which is racy and finely knit, with lovely hints of licorice, saline and orchard blossom riding the satiny mousse on the long finish.
