What to expect


Picture this, winemaker Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon says to you, "hey, I'm going to make a Rosé in 2012 and it's going to be ridiculously good. Would you like some in about 4-5 years time?" The answer is a resounding YES. Wines from this house have been consistently good and when 'jblfizz' (on Instagram) decides to make a Rosé from one of the best vintages, it's time to invest.

We are thrilled to have the last bottles in the country. Grab some before they run out and stash a few in your cellar.  

---------------------------------------------------------------------

"This was the most gloriously ethereal and elegant champagne one could imagine, while certainly not lacking in power, line, and length; an array of flavours with nougat to the forefront, surrounded by an entrancing mist of red berries, strawberries, and raspberries. There are darker fruits to be found, a hint of vanilla and some citrus, and more from the orange orchard end of the spectrum. Truly scintillating now, but have no fear about this wine ageing for many years to come, if well kept."

Ken Gargett - Wine Enthusiast & Writer.

"A rich year with low yields and a perfectly warm summer. The nose is all chalky, oyster shell and dried berries. Plenty of powerful wild red fruit. Super focused with a very crisp, linear, acid drive. Pink grapefruit to close. A great vintage for this rosé. Drink now or hold – this has the structure to support some ageing".

James Suckling: 95 Points

About the house

About the house


Food suggestion

This house has serious pedigree and a long history of making outstanding wines. Roederer is still family owned and run and has a significant land holding of over 230 hectares allowing them to supply 70% of their grape requirements with excellent fruit. We are impressed by Louis Roederer’s increasing commitment to exploring biodynamics both with treatment of their vast vineyard holdings plus the recent acquisition of a 15 hectare biodynamic parcel from Leclerc Briant. A relatively small 3 million bottles per annum of production are exported, largely to the USA. 

Food suggestion


There are many with great vintage Rosé like this, however we are thinking, Cinnamon spiced Duck or Quail with Kumquat and some fragrant Jasmine rice.
