Roederer Estate Champagne Blend Anderson Valley Brut NV
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.
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!
This is one of the best values on the market today-soft, creamy and yet it has a wonderful crisp acidity to go with anything! Seafood appetizers, pates, full cheese assortments, and one of my favorite pairings: smoked salmon from the pacific northwest. Everyone loves this stuff! Cheers!

External Reviews for Roederer Estate Champagne Blend Anderson Valley Brut
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 it's one of the best nonvintage values in California.
An elegant, pale-golden color leads to subtle but refined aromas of bread dough and lime, and a tantalizing hint of - what? Mint? Raspberry? White chocolate? The same flavors commingle in the mouth. It's very dry and acidic now. A year or so might soften it.
Smooth and creamy with a rich core of creamy pear, spice and hazelnut that are deep, well focused and complex. Long, full finish.
Starts with wonderfully complex scents of dough, char, butterscotchy smoke, lemon chiffon pie and vanilla. The flavors are equally complex. Would score higher if not for a certain roughness of texture.
Rich, crisp and appealing, with floral Gala apple, cherry and caramel aromas and layered citrus, ginger and spice flavors. Drink now through 2010.
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.
Shows good intensity and balance, with baked apple, spice and appealing earthy aromas that lead to rich but crisp pear, lemon curd and toast flavors. Drink now through 2012.
