Roederer Estate Brut Rose
The Roederer Estate Rosé is full and round with smooth flavors and a fine, persistent mousse. The extra measure of Chardonnay contributes elegance and austerity that balance nicely with the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir.

There’s ample red-apple flavor at the center of this wine, lingering with a light touch, and hints of spicy orange and ripe peach. That sweet fruit finishes clean, with a gentle sweep of acidity, balanced and long. For scallop sashimi.
Keenly fruity and redolent of fresh Rainer cherries in both scent and taste and enriched with a well-measured complement of toasty autolysis throughout, this lovely Brut Rosé is charged with a very fine and sustained, marvelously mouthfilling mousse, and, for all of its considerable fruity volume and yeasty complexity, it is uncannily graceful and light on its feet. It has the richness to stand up to fairly flavorful entrees ranging from the likes of salmon to roast duck to pork cutlets finished with a creamy sauce but,at the same time, it is so polished and neatly balanced as to be equally satisfying without food.
Founded in 1981, Roederer Estate is nestled in Mendocino County’s fog-shrouded, Anderson Valley. As the California property of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking. Roederer's unique winemaking style is based on two elements: complete ownership of its vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuvee to create complex, dry and harmonious sparkling wines.
The crisp, fresh and rich flavors of Roederer Estate sparkling wines reflect the cool 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. The blending team is comprised of the winemakers from the California property as well as from Champagne Louis Roederer, ensuring that Roederer Estate remains the most French of the California sparklers.
