Roederer Estate Brut Rose NV

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the best Bruts made in America. Combines the opulence of new world fruit with the finesses of French winemaking. Roederer Estate Brut is made from 100% estate grapes grown in Northern California's cool Anderson Valley. In true Roederer style, this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is selected from their reserve wines and is oak aged. Light gold with coppery tinges, the Roederer Estate Brut is unusually complex for a California sparkler. Beautifully balanced, the wine has a creamy mouth feel and long, elegant finish.

Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate winery is nestled in Mendocino County's cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate winery builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking.  Roederer Estate's sparkling wines are produced using only Estate-grown grapes from the winery's own vineyards. Carrying on the tradition of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, special oak-aged reserve wines are added to each blend. The multi-vintage Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great acclaim, followed by the Roederer Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate's tête de cuvée, L'Ermitage.  Roederer Estate's brand website can be found at www.RoedererEstate.com.

Really good Brut from Anderson Valley. Light, crisp, good acidity balanced with just a hint of sweetness along with nice fruit and subtle toastiness.

We drank this celebrating the Holidays with Lou, Pete, Rich, and Jim. An impressive sparkling wine at this price point; all the better to buy and drink more for special occasions! In terms of tasting notes, the others have summed it up well.

    Toast, fine bubbles. A hint of black cherry. Great company.

    This is a very good sparkling wine -- creamy, toasty almonds with tight small bubbles that last a long time in the glass. This is a fantastic value for the price.

    I've found this to be always a wonderful bubbly, and really a steal for the price. It's got a lot of what Roederer Estate's L'Hermitage vintaged bottlings offer, except perhaps this shows a seam when the L'Hermitage is seamless. Still, it's nicely put together with fruit and finesse, and a touch of creaminess. We served this as the toasting wine at our wedding reception and heard our guests enjoyed it as much as we do.

    A pale, platinum gold color and clean scent of Asian pear introduce this cool, Anderson Valley sparkler. Crisp pear flavors meld with chamomile through a mineral-tinged finish, the wineandrsquo;s supple texture growing richer with air. For any roast fish, consider Chatham cod served over braised fennel.

    A very delicate and refined bubbly, with a richly doughy, smoky aroma and complex, nuanced flavors of raspberry and lime. It has a detectable dosage of sugar, but itandrsquo;s one of the best nonvintage values in California.

    Complex minerality runs through this sparkler, tinged with sweet vanilla and strawberry flavors, but not overtly fruity. With light richness and firm acidity, itandrsquo;s suited to poached prawns.

    An elegant, pale-golden color leads to subtle but refined aromas of bread dough and lime, and a tantalizing hint of andmdash; what? Mint? Raspberry? White chocolate? The same flavors commingle in the mouth. Itandrsquo;s very dry and acidic now. A year or so might soften it.

    Michel Salgues, winemaker at this Mendocino County outpost of Roederer, is intent on refining the concept with which he started, and this release is the best yet. The wine impresses immediately with aromas of yeast and toast, with a refreshing element of sea-breeze. The flavor interest is balanced, if not excelled, by finesse, achieved by a nearly perfect fruit/acid balance traceable to ripening the grapes ideally in the Roederer-owned vineyards. If youandrsquo;ve ever been dubious about sparkling wine, try this one.

    Crisp and refreshingly minerally, offering tart Gala apple and lemon aromas and focused flavors of yeasty citrus and anise. A hint of cherry lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2013.

    Creamy, soft and mellow, this sparkler is filled with ripe apple flavors and savory lees. It finishes pleasantly sweet, to serve as an aperitif.
