Louis Roederer Vintage Rose is made from a blend of 65% Pinot noir and 35% Chardonnay. It is an incredibly juicy Champagne, where the Pinot Noir shines through with delicate strawberry and raspberry notes and an almost minty/herbal freshness. The palate is complex with spicy and savoury notes, cocoa beans and lovely fresh fruit notes before the saline finish kicks in. It is a wonderful wine, very gastronomic, but fit for any occasion.

Champagne Louis Roederer was founded in 1776 and has been owned by the same family since 1819. It is one of the few privately-owned Champagne houses left and is free from interference from multinational companies and hedge funds that are more interested in the bottom line than the quality of the Champagne. The house has substantial vineyard holdings (240 hectares), which helps control quality, consistency and price as there is less reliance on buying grapes from growers on the open market. 90% of the vineyards are classed as either Grand or Premier Cru and come from superb sites in the Montage de Reims, Vallee de la Marne and Cote des Blancs. Farming is increasingly being done biodynamically.
