Louis Roederer Vintage - 2013 Brut & 2014 Brut Rosé

Two fine tasting samples from Vinunic, enjoyed over two days with some good food.

2013 Brut, Louis Roederer
This 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay blend offers up a intense, focused nose with notes of toasted bread, grilled lemons, red currants, almond paste and cap gun smoke. Very deep and fine. Still young.
The taste is tight and intense with notes of sweet minerals, smoke, white and red currants and sour dough bread. A high acidity. Very long. Young, wait 6+ years.
93p   (tasted 2020/11)

2014 Brut Rosé, Louis Roederer
I tasted this a couple of months ago and it behaved in a similar manner. At least on day one. On the second day it was even more harmonious with added notes of ripe red berries - raspberries, strawberries and red currants. Lovely.
The taste is more creamy, rich and layered. A very fine acidity. Very long. Preferred it on day two.
