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
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.
Rich, crisp and appealing, with floral Gala apple, cherry and caramel aromas and layered citrus, ginger and spice flavors. Drink now through 2010.
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.
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.
Fresh scents of wheat and cider apples emerge out of the creamy, leesy richness of this wine. chill it for poached prawns.
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.
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.
