The non-vintage 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.
Roederer Estate is the California property of the famous Champagne Louis Roederer house. The 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 cuvée. All the grapes for the Anderson Valley wines are grown on the estate. Oak-aged wines from the estate’s reserve cellars are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuvée in the traditional Louis Roederer style.

"Sleek and luxurious, with expressive Asian pear, strawberry blossom and roasted hazelnut flavors that build richness on an opulent finish. Drink now through 2020. 80,000 cases made." -TF, 8/31/19

"This crisp, fruity and citrus-accented wine has plenty of green apple and lemon flavors, brisk bubbles and a clean, tangy finish. A flavor of fresh-baked bread and a softer texture develop with time in the glass." -JG, 12/31/19
