In tasting Roederers 2008 Brut Rose, I am certainly reminded of the belief stated in their press releases that “a great rose Champagne must be made from very ripe grapes, which, they go on to explain, is the reason why this cuvee is always predominantly informed by the steep, shallow-soiled, south-facing, waterside slopes of Cumieres. Certainly what has been extracted from the two-thirds Pinot here colored via saignee is an essence of ripe, juicy fresh red currant and red raspberry laced with lemon and orange rinds and perfectly set off by close to ten grams of residual sugar. A faintly sweaty tang and subtle suffusion of chalk add interest and slight grain of tannin invigoration to a lusciously refreshing but still very much fruit-dominated finish. I wouldnt want to rule out some additional depth of flavor emerging over the next couple of years, but it would be a shame to miss out on this cuvee in its exuberantly fresh-fruited youth.

Still young and fruity, this is a wine with impressive potential. For now, enjoy the palest of rose colors, bright red fruits, and crisp and lively acidity. In the next several years, this will deepen and mellow, so keep and don’t drink until 2017. - Cellar Selection
