Roederer Estate Champagne Blend Anderson Valley Brut 2011
Offers lots of richness, depth and flavor, with its well-focused pear, hazelnut, honey, fig and spice character. Shows wonderful finesse and a long lingering finish, where it picks up a trace of almond. A great value.Add winemaker's notes
Three and a half glasses
One of the best sparkling wines in this price range. I always get a taste of caramel apple with Roederer. Great value.
This lively champagne helped us usher in the New Year, 2209. It was ebullient and effervescent, very much like the lively company I shared.
A bit overly ebullient in the glass; mousse is good, but perhaps a tad coarse. Good apple-pear nose and attack with excellent, clean acidity on the palate. Bubbles continue for a reasonable period before dissipating. Some sweetness on a medium finish. Overall, quite a good bubbly for the twenty dollar range.
Pale yellow color in the glass. Notes of green apples with just a touch of mineral. Fine mousse. There is an acidic undertone but it is not overly prominent. This wine was dry but not exceptionally so.
Excellent "everyday" sparkling wine. It has the structure and yeasty overtones of a more expensive bottle. Goes well with everything from your cheese course to pizza to meatloaf!

A delicious California sparkler with rich and toasty aromas up front, and a follow-up that features focused and complex lemon, grapefruit, herb, green apple and pear flavors. it’s bright and clean on the finish, quite refreshing. Drink now through 2002.
Smooth, rich and creamy, with spicy pear, fig, melon and honeysuckle flavors that are fresh and lively, ending with a tasty burst of ripe fruit. Drink now.
Sleek and impeccably focused and balanced, with floral apple, cinnamon and anise aromas and crisp yet supple lemon tart, cherry and spicy hazelnut flavors. Drink now through 2015.
One of the finest domestic sparklers, with a wonderful aroma of dough and spice; engaging green apple notes wrapped in a creamy, toasty package; elegant and refined.
Presents the French mystique with California touches; one of the best bubblies $20 and under that gives the illusion of being above $20.
Intense and concentrated, with rich pear, citrus, hazelnut and vanilla flavors that are focused and lively. Excellent value. Drink now through 2007.
