Roederer Estate Champagne Blend Anderson Valley Brut 2011

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

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.

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!

Intense and concentrated, with rich pear, citrus, hazelnut and vanilla flavors that are focused and lively. Excellent value. Drink now through 2007.

This is an absolutely first-rate bubbly, dry, smooth and rich. Has complex flavors of peaches, limes and strawberries, accented by doughy yeast and smoky flavors. Really defines the balanced elegance and pedigree you want in a great sparkler. — S.H. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 90 Points

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.

Focused and vibrant, with aromas of creamy apple, cinnamon and hazelnut leading to complex, layered flavors of lemon custard, mineral and almond. The finish lingers. Drink now through 2015.

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

Deep toasty nose, with rich, forward fruit aromas. Complex and well balanced flavors, with soft, flavorful fruit; long, satisfying fruity finish. Great choice for the list.
