The Roederer Estate Brut is crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavors. It is fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavor.
Connoisseur's Guide 91 points - Sleek and charming, with yeasty apple torte and floral cherry aromas and rich, crisp flavors of lemon curd, spicy vanilla and fresh ginger. Drink now.-T.F.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Thickly moussed, Roederer’s Brut, 60% Chardonnay blended with 40% Pinot Noir, aged two years on yeast is affordable and luxurious. A gorgeous, very dry sparkling wine with aromatics of honey, raisin, apple and pear, it is rich and soft and offers both depth and length. It’s an ideal marriage of bright acidity and ripe fruit character.
ROEDERER ESTATE BURT ANDERSON VALLEY
"70% Chardonnay; 30% Pinot Noir. Our first pick of the bunch among current crop of non-vintage brut bottlings, this intense, genuinely complex effort sports a lovely mix of toasty yeast and lemony fruit from its expansive aromas to its very long and very rich flavors. It is impeccably balanced, quite creamy in feel and is enlivened by an endless stream of tiny, pinpoint bubbles. And if all this were not enough, it comes with the very real bonus of being widely available. GOOD VALUE" Connoisseurs' Guide 91 Points
