Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut NV

Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California, United StatesIt has been a while since we have seen the Roederer Estate Brut multi-vintage sparkler, but it is simply better than ever. Set among the fog in Mendocino County's Anderson Valley, it is a sparkling California star. The owners Champagne Louis Roederer know a thing or two about making sparkling wine, and the latest edition is outstanding. The fruit is estate grown and subject to a meticulous vineyard regime. Each year oak aged wine from the estate's reserve cellars is added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuvée in the traditional Roederer style. The attack is lively with enticing pear and hazelnut dusted in complex, tasty lees. Long and intense, this is a winner. The blend is 60/40 chardonnay/pinot noir aged a minimum of two years on the lees.Tasted: 18 October 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 42.99 private wine shops AB 32.00 fine wine boutiques ON 25.00 Vintages QC 28.00 Producer: Roederer Estate Inc.Distributors: Select Wines & Spirits
