2015 Louis Roederer Brut Nature Rosé Champagne / Philippe Starck
This cuvée is 50% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay and 13% Pinot Meunier. The aromas remind you of a patisserie in the south of France. The delicate toasty aromas are intermixed with spring field flowers. This is an energetic Champagne that marries citrus oils with minerality and exotic red spices. The richness and complexity is accented by detailed flavors of raspberry coulis and mandarin orange. The intense levels of fruit are backed by firm acidity and tension. This memorable Champagne over-delivers with plenty of personality and substance.
