Roederer Estate Brut Rosé NV

Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California, United StatesIt's been a while, but I'm always surprised by its bright, lively character whenever I come back to this wine. The Roederer connection significantly affects this multi-vintage blend of 56/44 pinot noir and chardonnay. The light salmon colour springs from a small portion of pinot noir (3-5%) with extended maceration added to the blend before the secondary fermentation in the bottle. In addition, a small amount of oak-aged reserve juice goes into the Anderson Valley wine, adding another layer of complexity. This first press wine has no malolactic fermentation, keeping the wine fresh and pristine in the Roederer style. Expect fresh red fruit with precision bubble work and elegance galore. At 11 grams per litre of residual sugar, it has an added charm for some. It is also food-friendly and ready to go.Tasted: 03 March 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
