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!

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. 80,000 cases made. -TF Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. N.V. Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut 3000ml

Roederer Estate’s Brut is reliably open and delicious, this year’s cuvée bursting with concentrated apple flavor. It’s clean and dry with a long, delicate finish enhanced by the barrel-aged reserve wines that winemaker Arnaud Weyrich blends in. Its bold flavors and vinous texture would be great with cracked crab.

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.

Sweet scents of golden delicious apples and pear carry through this finely balanced wine, ripe yet modulated by a clean, yeasty freshness. It makes a refreshing and light aperitif, or a match for fish, even white salmon sashimi.

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.
