Louis Roederer - Brut Rose 2012Champagne
Country of OriginFrance
- Grape TypeChardonnay
- Grape TypePinot Noir
On the palate, the wine is soft and smooth yet also piercingly fresh. A well-integrated wine with excellent body, pleasant freshness, a long length and delicate mouthfeel. The body softens gradually and coats the palate with a velvety smoothness underpinned by a pleasant salinity and delicate hints of tannin from the flesh and skins of the Pinot Noir grape. The finish is fresh, long and very persistent.
It is a fantastic pairing with fish such as salmon and tuna; meat including lamb, veal, guinea fowl, wood pigeon and pheasant; and also soft cheeses such as Chaource and Brillat-Savarin. It can also be served with red fruit-based desserts that are less sweet, such as a red fruit zabaglione or a red fruit gratin.
