Winemaker's Notes:

The color of the 1999 L'Ermitage is a nice yellow with golden hues highlighting the tiny bubbles and long lasting foam. On the nose there are subtle notes of quince jam and honey intermingled with licorice and white flowers. The palate is creamy with soft floral and honey accents. The 1999 L'Ermitage is a lively and elegant wine with an excellent balance of fruit and acidity.

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.
