Delivery Details

Louis Roederer Philippe Starck 2012 Vintage Rosé Champagne is much awaited and is fruity and textured with a remarkable depth and typical 'Pinot' characteristics.

The grapes are grown exclusively in the Coteau de Cumieres. A small proportion of the domaine's Pinot noirs are harvested separately and undergo a few days' cold 'infusion' without alcohol fermentation before being incorporated into the Brut Nature Blanc juices. 

Philippe Starck is a French designer known since the start of his career in the 1980s for his interior design and products including everything from interior design to household objects to boats to watches, with industrial and architectural designs,  and including one of our favourites the Phillipe Starck chair.

2012 was one of the most challenging and complicated years ever experienced in Champagne. However, difficult conditions often lead to great things... The low yields, due to the unpredictable weather, combined with continental conditions towards the end of the season, gave unusual levels of maturity, resulting in rich, full-bodied and structured wines worthy of the greatest vintages in Champagne.
Orange hue with salmon pink tints and a patient, even effervescence. Spicy aromas of Sichuan pepper combined with sappy and floral notes of violet and gentian. Toast and mocha on the nose resulting in an elegant and concentrated bouquet. After aeration, intense fruity notes start to emerge along with concentrated notes of wild raspberries. The palate is fruity. The Pinot noir offers an intense fruitiness and a tight and juicy structure complemented by ripe, almost sweet tannins. The fruit and texture display remarkable depth and are starting to show a typical 'Pinot' character.

It all began in 2003… this exceptionally sunny year, which was problematic for our northern vineyards, revealed—for the first time—certain vineyards with remarkable potential in the heart of the Louis Roederer estate.

Located on the calcareous clay soil hillsides of Cumières, Hautvillers, and Vertus – rich in hard, coarse sandstone – these parcels had no difficulty in resisting the heat and drought in the summer of 2003. In fact, the vineyards produced aromatic, intense, and balanced grapes. The resulting wines are characterised by an optimal aromatic maturity, a creamy texture, and a vibrant freshness. This encouraged us to carry out a series of bottling trials. The wines were fine-tuned in 2003, 2004, and 2005, which culminated in the selection of the first 2006 vintage, which in turn led to the creation of the 2009 – another beautiful sunny year.
