Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate winery is nestled in Mendocino County's cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate winery builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking.  Roederer Estate's sparkling wines are produced using only Estate-grown grapes from the winery's own vineyards. Carrying on the tradition of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, special oak-aged reserve wines are added to each blend. The multi-vintage Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great acclaim, followed by the Roederer Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate's tête de cuvée, L'Ermitage.  Roederer Estate's brand website can be found at www.RoedererEstate.com.

Brut NV Magnum $45 (4/5) – Surprising how much difference a magnum can make. Like the standard NV but with a richer, creamier texture. Still hast the baked bread and green apple components.

Very much the Roederer house style. Typical baked bread, yeast and dough aromas. Nice bright, tart flavors with green apple and dough.

This really is good, and amazing value for the price. Pale straw in color, abundant mousse, small bead. Aromas of brioche and meyer lemon. Palate of apples, toast, and a firm, nutty edge. Just terrific.

Tasted in 750 ml and magnum bottles on same day. The 750: Very lively in the mouth, with aromas and flavors of yellow delicious apples, hazelnut, and toast. Creamy mousse, fine bead. The magnum: tastes very different due to longer time on the lees--much creamier and toastier, a very rich version of the brut in the smaller bottle.

This estate-grown blend of chardonnay and pinot noir gains added richness from oak-aged reserve wines. The reserves broaden the texture, contributing almond tones to the clean, fresh apple and pear flavors. A festive aperitif, this delivers far beyond its

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 92Fully 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.Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 92Broad in texture, layered with tart apples and sweeter baked apple flavors, this has a clean freshness that lasts. A touch of leesy spice hints at its complexities... This is a distinguished California sparkler, presenting the cool Anderson Valley at its best.

Clean and refreshing, with vibrant spicy pear, ginger and a touch of pineapple, finishing with a hint of citrus. Concentrated and youthful, this wine may benefit from short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2009. 7,840 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1999 Roederer Estate L'Ermitage 750ml
