The Roederer Estate Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. For color, the winemaker prepares a small portion of Pinot Noir wine with extended maceration and adds about three to five percent to the blend before secondary fermentation, imparting a subtle salmon tinge. Both the blend and addition of the small amount of red wine create a charming wine of discreet finesse.
91 Points Wine & Spirits: There’s lovely precision to the light strawberry notes in this wine, a clean parallel to its pale pink color. The finish is spicy and gentle, with a creamy undercurrent that lingers on fruit. Chill it for prawns.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast: From the yeasty, strawberry-tinged aroma to the brisk, doughy mouthfeel through to the honeyed, complex finish, this is a fine wine. It feels beautiful, clean and stimulating, just as a sparkling wine should.
90 Points Wine Spectator – Editors’ Choice – Expressive and festive, backed by good structure. Aromas of strawberry and ginger bread lead to crisp, plush red apple and spice flavors.
