Winemaker's Notes:

Only the best lots of estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are selected for this cuvee de prestige. The epitone of finesse and complexity, L'Ermitage is the culmination of ten years of dedication in the Anderson Valley, proving Roederers conviction that this region is ideal for the creation of superlative sparkling wines.

About Roederer Estate:

The crisp, fresh and rich flavors of Roederer Estate sparkling wines reflect the cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley that is home to their family-owned estate's 600 acres of vineyards. This protected valley in Northern California provides the ideal ripening conditions for their 100% estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate adds oak-aged reserve wines to all their blends to create complex, dry and harmonious sparkling wines.
