Roederer Estate Brut is made from 100% estate grapes grown in Northern Californias cool Anderson Valley. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the Brut also contains the ingredient essential to the Roederer style - oak-aged wines from the winerys reserve cellars.
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.
"Thickly moussed, Roederer’s Brut, 60% Chardonnay blended with 40% Pinot Noir, aged two years on yeast is affordable and luxurious. A gorgeous, very dry sparkling wine with aromatics of honey, raisin, apple and pear, it is rich and soft and offers both depth and length. It’s an ideal marriage of bright acidity and ripe fruit character."
"70% Chardonnay; 30% Pinot Noir. Our first pick of the bunch among current crop of non-vintage brut bottlings, this intense, genuinely complex effort sports a lovely mix of toasty yeast and lemony fruit from its expansive aromas to its very long and very rich flavors. It is impeccably balanced, quite creamy in feel and is enlivened by an endless stream of tiny, pinpoint bubbles. And if all this were not enough, it comes with the very real bonus of being widely available."
"Sleek and impeccably focused and balanced, with floral apple, cinnamon and anise aromas and crisp yet supple lemon tart, cherry and spicy hazelnut flavors."
