California Wine, Anderson Valley
About Roederer Estate Vineyard Wine
Founded in 1981, Roederer Estate Winery is nestled in Mendocino County's cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the California outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Roederer Estate Winery builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking. Roederer Estate's sparkling wines are produced using only Estate-grown grapes from the winery's own vineyards. Carrying on the tradition of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, special oak-aged reserve wines are added to each blend. The multi-vintage Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great acclaim, followed by the Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate's tête de cuvée, L'Ermitage.
Roederer Estate Winery Brut
This crisply elegant multi-vintage wine dazzles with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavors. Fresh and lightly fruity, with great finesse and depth of flavor.
Roederer Estate Winery Brut Rosé
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.
Roederer Estate Winery L'Ermitage Brut
L'Ermitage has excellent balance and great finesse. This vintage shows delicate apple and lemon characters, soft and fresh on the palate, with citrus and rich honey characters on a long finish. It is well balanced, with little acidity-an elegant and very complex wine.
