Roederer Estate Champagne Blend Anderson Valley Brut 2011

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A California bubbly that is full of flavor. Ripe, intense pear and spice that remain fresh and alive on the finish. Has the depth and richness to improve with cellaring through 1996.

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!

An outstanding California brut from a French Champagne producer, this offers lots of richness, depth and flavor with its well-focused pear, hazelnut, honey, fig and spice character. Displays wonderful finesse and has a long, lingering finish, where it picks up a trace of almond. A great value too.

A 60/40 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot, this sparkler is surprisingly complex with pear, melon and toast, and a fine texture.

Pale straw hue. Tart, vibrant fruity aromas. Crisp citrus and mineral flavors with a medium body and a frothy, finely beaded mouthfeel. Finishes cleanly with a zesty note. Shows finesse and elegance.

Intense, genuinely complex effort sports a lovely mix of toasty yeast and lemony fruit from its expansive aromas to its very long and very rich flavors.

Intense and compact, with a tight beam of earth, pear, citrus and mineral, offering taut acidity and ending with a dash of ginger. Drink now.

This is both fresh and substantial, striking a delicious balance between apple-skin spice, tangy lees and a briny seashell character. A festive coastal sparkler to pour with Dungeness crab.
