Quartet is Champagne Louis Roederer’s outpost in California’s Anderson Valley. A cool climate and well-drained soils provide the ideal conditions for Louis Roederer’s winemaking style: one of excellence, precision and freshness. The Roederer Quartet Rosé has fine, persistant bubbles. The Chardonnay contributes elegance, a floral character and a pleasantly austere freshness, which are the perfect counterpoint to the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir, which brings notes of fresh red berries.
The Roederer Estate Rosé is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. To produce the wine’s elegant salmon colour, Arnaud Weyrich, Quartet’s Head Winemaker, allows 5% of the Pinot Noir to undergo an extended maceration before secondary fermentation. As with all Roederer Estate wines, the Brut Rosé is produced from 100% estate-grown grapes. Only the cuvée (the first pressing of 120 gallons/ton) is use in the production of Quartet.
Following the lead of Champagne Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier, 10% – 20% of the Quartet Rosé is made up of premium quality oak-aged reserve wines, creating a multi-vintage cuvée in the traditional Roederer style.
Food pairing: Perfect as an aperitif but equally enjoyable with lightly grilled meat. Serve at 12°C
Decanter: 94 points – “This wine exudes class. It displays a wonderful pale pink colour with apricot and copper hue as well as tiny persistent bubbles. Aromas are delicate and refined including a combination of fresh berry fruits, toast, wild flowers and yeasty notes. On the palate it has wonderful creamy texture (two years on the lees have certainly contributed to the textural softness), attractive savoury complexity and a wonderful refreshing finish.” July 2020
Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points – “Crisp peach and red-fruit flavours combine with vibrant acidity and energizing, fine bubbles to create a balanced and rich sparkling wine. A spicy, crisp fruit character lingers long on the finish.”
