Winemaker Notes

L'Ermitage, Roederer Estate's special Tête de Cuvée, is a sparkling wine made only in exceptional years from pre-selected, estate-grown grapes. Carrying on the tradition of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, Roederer Estate produces its sparkling wines in the traditional French methode and adds special oak-aged reserve wines to each blend. L'Ermitage debuted with the 1989 vintage.

Blend: 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir - 4% aged reserve wine.

COMMENTARY: The 2005 L'Ermitage has been consistent in the few times I have tasted it. One of the lighter, though by no means shy, vintages over the years, this wine shows excellent balance and breed. TASTING NOTES: This wine is playing on the border of freshness and complexity. Its ripe apple and hints of earth in the aromas makes it refreshing and enjoyable in the finish. Enjoy its elegance as a bubbly to start the evening, and the 2005 could easily be the star of the night. (Tasted: April 4, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
A lovely combination of rich opulence and crisp, refined fruit. Aromas of sweet apple, brioche, fresh ginger and stony mineral lead to layered flavors of lemon, cinnamon and subtle caramel.

Wine & Spirits
Winemaker Arnaud Weyrich composed this racy vintage of Roederer Estate’s tête de cuvée from a near-even blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, along with some oak-aged reserve wine from the 2003 vintage. It tightens from a ripe, sunny, apple skin aroma toward a lime-green streak of acidity, scents of kelp and autumn leaves bringing savory dimension to its focused structure. It’s clean and bright enough for shellfish right now, but should be more delicate and versatile with another year or two in bottle.

Roederer Estate, North Coast, California
Video of winery

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.

North Coast

View all wine

Encompassing the grape-growing regions located north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Sonoma, and Solano. Napa and Sonoma get all of the attention, but there are a few other counties producing great wine in Northern California. Two notable examples are Mendocino and Lake County, the northernmost winegrowing regions in the state. These AVAs are very different, both from their neighbors to the south and from one another.

Mendocino benefits from the cooling fog of the Pacific Ocean and is able to successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. There is a significant focus here on organic viticulture. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Sauvignon Blanc are the dominant varieties. Both regions are excellent sources of high-quality but affordable California wines in a wide range of styles.
