Roederer Estate Champagne Blend Anderson Valley Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

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!

Fully ready to drink now, this dry brut shows the classy elegance of a fine Champagne. The Chardonnay contributes white peaches and apples, while Pinot adds a subtle note of cherries with spicy, yeasty nuances. At 80,000 cases, it's a notable achievement.

The holidays are upon us, Celebrate with this incredible California sparkler. Brightly acidic, yet plush and refined with hints of sweet lemon, lime, hazelnut and wholesome vanilla notes. Clean and crisp, the bubbles, small and clear, dance to the top of your fluted glass all the way through to its almond and spicy finish. This is the standard for all French-inspired California champagne. Try it in place of Chardonnay for your ham or turkey holiday dinner. The impressions it leaves will astound!! Happy Holidays.

One of the questions that comes up every year during our Fall tastings of new sparkling wines is which producer leads the pack when it comes to basic, non-vintage Bruts.

Is there a better sparkling wine is the world at this price? Owned by Louis Roederer Champagne, this estate is located in Mendocino County's cool Anderson Valley. A blend of 70 percent Chardonnay and 30 percent Pinot Noir, it is a dry, lively, well-balanced nonvintage sparkler with persistent bubbles and lots of character.
