The 2006 Louis XV Brut Rosé Millésimé is almost the same assemblage as the white, with 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but it gets its marvelous color from the 6% of red Pinot Noir from 40-year-old vines cultivated in the single vineyard La Forêt in Les Riceys. The wine displays a beautifully intense and slightly cloudy/milky pink color. The pink Louis XV is intense yet pure and complex on the nose, with toasty mocha, nougat and concentrated yet chalky/mineral flavored red fruit and paté de fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a round, intense, almost smooth but elegantly pure, dry and fresh, perfectly balanced, structured and charmingly vinous Rosé Champagne with a dominant Pinot Noir character at the moment, although its freshness and tight mineral elegance is driven by the Chardonnay part. The finish is intense yet finessed, with vibrant red currant flavors, very fine tannins, good grip and impressive length. Wild strawberries, raspberries and cherries emerge in the aftertaste. This is a gorgeous food Champagne but you can also meditate with it. I guess I have rarely had better Rosé Champagnes. - Stephan Reinhardt

Named after the French king who first said that Champagne had to be bottled (thereby allowing the bubbles to be retained), this dry rosé is rich, beginning to mature and full of ripe red fruits. Hints of toast and almonds... Named after the French king who first said that Champagne had to be bottled (thereby allowing the bubbles to be retained), this dry rosé is rich, beginning to mature and full of ripe red fruits. Hints of toast and almonds add an extra dimension to the wine's complexity. It is ready to drink.
