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.
Easy to drink. Great bang for the buck!

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.
External Reviews for Roederer Estate Brut Rose
Iandrsquo;ve always liked this wine, and itandrsquo;s one of the best sparking wines made in the U.S. Theyandrsquo;ve got a great stock of reserve wine from Anderson Valley. Those reserves add richness to the brisk acidity and ripe apple flavors. With the creamy mousse on this, Iandrsquo;d like a Paive Vecchio or a Parmigiano to lighten it up.
Light yellow. Pear, orange zest and smoky lees on the nose. Offers flavors of melon and fresh orchard fruits, with a honeyed nuance and a spicy overtone. Refreshingly dry and precise, with firm closing grip and lingering bitterness.
A rich version, loaded with spicy cinnamon notes. Bold apple aromas, with a whiff of yeast, lead to complex, layered pear, crandegrave;me branducirc;landeacute;e and baked apple flavors that linger. Drink now.
Itandrsquo;s tricky to make sparkling wine in the California heat, but itandrsquo;s easier if the heatandrsquo;s moderated by Mendocino fog. Roedererandrsquo;s sparklers remain among the finest in the state.
Fully ready to drink now, this dry brut shows the classy elegance of a fine Champagne. The Chardonnay contributes white peaches and apples, while Pinot adds a subtle note of cherries with spicy, yeasty nuances. At 80,000 cases, itandrsquo;s a notable achievement.
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.
Rich and youthful, with delicate aromas of green apple and lime that lead to full flavors of baked pear and toasty anise, laced with cinnamon. The finish is clean and crisp, with a hint of mineral. Drink now.
Winemaker Notes The Roederer Estate Rosé is full and round with smooth flavors and fine persistent bubbles. The extra measure of Chardonnay contributes elegance and austerity, which balance nicely with the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir. Winemaking As with all Roederer Estate wines, the Brut Rosé is comprised of 100 percent estate grown grapes. Oak-aged wines from the Estate's reserve cellars are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuvée in the traditional Roederer style. Only the cuvée (first pressing of 120 gallons/ton) is used; no premiere or deuxieme taille. The wine is then fermented at 65 degrees Fahrenheit in high-grade stainless steel tanks. Five percent Pinot Noir is added for color prior to secondary fermentation; no malolactic fermentation is used. Oak-aged reserve wines from the Estate's cellars make up 10 to 20 percent of the Rosé cuvée. Technical Information Appellation: Anderson Valley Aging: Aged a minimum of two years on the yeast Wine Alcohol: 12% pH Level: 3.0 Residual Sugar: 1.2% Number of Cases Produced: 3,000 cases
