June 2022 95 Points, Top 100 Wines of the Year Wine & Spirits

“The Roederer team in Champagne are rosé specialists, and they have brought their talents to bear on the fruit of their Anderson Valley estate, where Arnaud Weyrich makes this wine. It’s the sixth release since L’Ermitage Rosé was launched in 1999, a sparkler that gains its color from a small portion of pinot noir still wine, the grapes macerating through an extended cold soak, then finishing their fermentation off the skins to capture the fruit rather than the tannins. The 2013 is a mouthwatering wine, refreshingly brisk, integrating its delicate red fruit with savory-saline notes of green olive that add complexity. Graceful enough to enjoy on its own, it’s built as a wine for food—especially a main course, like lobster grilled in its shell.”

“Classically styled and expressively vibrant, this bubbly opens to flavors of baked apple, roasted hazelnut, clove, nutmeg and other spices. The finish fans out, building a lingering richness. Drink now through 2023.”

“Graceful and vibrant, with detailed strawberry, quince and spiced cinnamon flavors that expand and take on richness on the long, crisp finish. Drink now.”

April 2022 94 Points

“A delicious rosé that comes across dry, with baked strawberry-pie character, in a subtle and attractive way. Some peach, too. It’s full and very layered. Fine bubbles at the end that melt into the wine. Clear and beautiful. 56% pinot noir and 44% chardonnay. Drink now.”

“This is primarily an excellent, light red wine, offering dried strawberries and herbs with stone and flint undertones. It’s full-bodied with tightness and layered mid-palate with an crisp, energetic finish. Fine bubbles at the end. 50% chardonnay and 50% pinot noir. Drink or hold.”
