Louis Roederer Vintage Rosé 2013

Rosé 2013

$129.95

Featured wine in 21st October tasting.

- Great vintage rosé from an esteemed house

- Balanced, fresh, vibrant and full of character

- Pinot Noir dominant blend (65%) aged 4 years on lees

"White fruit immediately on the nose, as well as some very strong lemon and lime notes. Some gently chalky notes, too, from the Chouilly chardonnay, which is super chalky. The palate has such focus and drive and a great, mineral core. Very long with a fresh line of acidity and peripheral, smooth flesh. Some pink grapefruit at the finish. Drink or hold." - James Suckling 

"This wine is already mature, with layers of toast over the crisp texture. There is a happy contrast between fruit and more complex, secondary flavors. This ripe, elegant wine is now ready to drink." - Wine Enthusiast 

"The Roederer 2013 Rosé has a lovely light pink color and opens with highly delicate red fruit and floral aromas. The wine is light, fresh, pure, very delicate and stimulatingly salty. Very energetic and at the same time caressing. The finish displays pink grapefruit, blood orange, and lime zest flavors. Highly stimulating in its purity, freshness and citrus character. Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon finds it less vinous than the 2012, but he thinks the 2013 has huge aging potential. Disgorged in January, tasted at the domaine in May 2018." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

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.

 

Pair with Cinnamon spiced Duck or Quail with Kumquat and Jasmine rice.
