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
Rich, crisp and appealing, with floral Gala apple, cherry and caramel aromas and layered citrus, ginger and spice flavors. Drink now through 2010.
Sleek and well-defined, with a mix of mineral, fresh earth, lemon, herb and green apple. Fresh, crisp and mouth-cleansing. Drink now.
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.
It's tricky to make sparkling wine in the California heat, but it's easier if the heat's moderated by Mendocino fog. Roederer's sparklers remain among the finest in the state.
A rich version, loaded with spicy cinnamon notes. Bold apple aromas, with a whiff of yeast, lead to complex, layered pear, crème brûlée and baked apple flavors that linger. Drink now.
A pale, platinum gold color and clean scent of Asian pear introduce this cool, Anderson Valley sparkler. Crisp pear flavors meld with chamomile through a mineral-tinged finish, the wine's supple texture growing richer with air. For any roast fish, consider Chatham cod served over braised fennel.
Complex minerality runs through this sparkler, tinged with sweet vanilla and strawberry flavors, but not overtly fruity. With light richness and firm acidity, it's suited to poached prawns.I've always liked this wine, and it's one of the best sparking wines made in the U.S. They'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, I'd like a Paive Vecchio or a Parmigiano to lighten it up.
