Default Looking for my perfect rose

What about red pierre the climber.

Or as near as possible. My first rose project...

Needs to have as many of the following attributes as possible, in order
of importance:

* Available in UK
* A climber, to trail along mini trellis on top of fence - 1 meter up,
1 meter along each way.
* A classic, deep red English valentine rose (Google the classic red
'Mr Lincoln' for desired appearance).
* Small, tight country cottage size flowers. Anything oversized or
overblooming is not the ticket in an English garden! Understated is the
keyword ; )
* An overpowering classic rose pong.
* A tollerant plant considered easy to look after.
* A popular rose with history that can be Googled for help.

Not too much to ask for, lol!
