“Delicate and pretty, with rose petal and strawberry tones accented by lemon, gingerbread and spices as this glides on the elegant finish. Drink now.”

“The new release of Roederer Estate non-vintage Brut is composed from a blend of sixty percent chardonnay and forty percent pinot noir, with ten to fifteen percent of the vins clairs barrelfermented. The wine spent a minimum of two years aging sur lattes and offers up a fine nose of lemon, apple, bread dough, a touch of almond, dried flowers and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a good core, frothy mousse, lovely balance and a long, classy finish. This is really quite lovely for the entry level bottling from the estate and a fine value. 2023-2035.”

“The Roederer Estate Rosé non-vintage Brut is a similar pale salmon color to the Rosés made at the mothership estate back in Reims. The wine this year is crafted from a blend of fiftysix percent pinot noir and forty-four percent chardonnay and was aged two years on its fine lees. Unlike the Rosés made by Louis Roederer, who use an infusion method to give the wine its lovely color, here in Anderson Valley the wine is made with a small addition of still pinot noir. The wine delivers a quite refined nose of peach, tangerine, a touch of melon, dried flowers, a fine base of soil and a wisp of dried rose petals in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, fullbodied and beautifully balanced, with a fine core of fruit, good soil undertow, refined mousse and an impressively long and complex finish. Fine juice. 2023-2035.”

“The 2015 Roederer Estate “l’Ermitage” Rosé is the new release of this lovely bottling. The wine is crafted from a cépages of fifty percent each of chardonnay and pinot noir. Four percent of the cuvée is composed of reserve wines from the harvests of 2010, 2012 and 2014. The wine includes a small percentage of still pinot noir to give the wine its lovely salmon color. It was finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter and offers up a very refined bouquet of peach, tangerine, wheat bread, a lovely base of soil tones, dried flowers, a touch of citrus peel and a topnote of gentle smokiness. On the palate the wine is crisp, complex and full-bodied, with an elegant profile, superb depth at the core, refined mousse, a lovely spine of acidity and excellent balance on the long and very classy finish. American sparkling wines do not get any better than this excellent vintage of l’Ermitage Rosé! 2023-2045+.”

“This effusively aromatic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Roederer Estate is absolutely delightful. L’Ermitage, both Brut and Rosé is a special tête de cuvée. This sparkling wine is made only from pre-selected, estate-grown grapes in exceptional years—aromatics of pink cotton candy, ripe apricot flesh and red apple peel. The palate is exquisite and refined. Candied peach, blood orange and a touch of wet chalk to finish.”
