Roederer Estate L'Ermitage Brut Anderson Valley Chardonnay Blend 2011

$47.99

Dry and nicely mature, this complex wine is always among California's best bubblies. It combines great balance, tiny bubbles and some very interesting flavors that make it as appealing as a well-cellared white Burgundy at its peak. Hints of toast, butter and almond fill the aroma, and lemon, crisp apple and baking spices fill the palate. It has lively acidity that's softened by a good sense of body. Wine Enthusiast

Roederer is my favorite CA sparkling winemaker, and this was my first vintage Champagne. Delicious! Finely balanced.

I thought it was not that good. Definitely tasted like it was from the U.S. A bit fruitier than the non-vintage. Julie really liked it.

Acidic and bright. Crisp citrus and fewer bubbles than the ‘12. A very good sparkling

This was really good, I think my favorite under $50. Soft bubbles, nice notes of toast & yeast. Very drinkable.
