#27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018
Crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavors. Fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavor.
94pts James Suckling "Extremely fresh and floral with sliced apples, stones and some white peach. Bread dough, too. Fine bead. Minimum to full body with crisp acidity and a steely finish. Hints of phenolics provide a fine texture. Vibrant acidity. About 15% reserve wine (mostly chardonnay) in this, from five vintages. 2.5 years on the lees. 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Drink or hold." Apr. 2022
93pts Wine Enthusiast "An enticing, toasty, nutty aroma leads to crisp and complex flavors in this medium-bodied wine that is braced by good acidity and a fine bead of bubbles. Subtle, mature notes complement the elegant texture." Dec. 2020
Roederer Estate Brut, the first California sparkling wine produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, builds upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking that has made Roederer champagne among the most sought-after in the world.
Roederer's winemaking style is based on two elements: ownership of its own vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuvee. All the grapes for the Anderson Valley wines are grown on the Estate.
The Roederer Estate Brut debuted in October 1988, and has since established its reputation as one of California's premier sparklers, remaining true to the heritage of excellence and style of its French forebears.
