93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The iconic Quartet (UK label) blend of Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Noir (40%) with two years in contact with the lees. From fog-shrouded Anderson Valley this shows supreme elegance, balance and poise. Pale straw colour. Attractive notes of citrus fruits, fresh dough, cashew nuts, star fruit, Mirabelle plum and fresh biscuits on the nose. The palate dry with a lovely creamy texture, amazing finesse and sophistication, followed by an assertive and refreshing finish. (DVJ) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark An enticing, toasty, nutty aroma leads to crisp and complex flavors in this medium-bodied wine that is braced by good acidity and a fine bead of bubbles. Subtle, mature notes complement the elegant texture. (JG) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The NV Estate Brut is scented of sour lemon, almonds and biscuits with flinty touches. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and creamy with bright, lemony character and a long, mineral-driven finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (7/2022)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Brisk and festive, this is simply fun to sip. Sleek and graceful, unfurling with an array of strawberry, orange zest and brioche flavors that finish with a refreshing lift. (TF) Inner quote mark (6/2022)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The current release of Roederer Estate non-vintage Brut is composed from its customary blend of sixty percent chardonnay and forty percent pinot noir, with only a small percentage of the vins clairs going through malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for two years-plus sur latte and was finished with a dosage of twelve grams per liter. The wine offers up a deep and complex nose of apple, white peach, fresh-baked bread, a complex base of soil tones, a hint of smokiness and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied and complex, with a superb core of fruit, lovely mineral drive and cut, frothy mousse and a long, well-balanced and quite classy finish. The addition of reserve wines in the blend here give it more complexity than probably any other non-vintage Brut produced in California. This is very good juice. Inner quote mark (9/2021)

Jancis Robinson

After tasting the Roeder Estate Anderson Valley Brut Sparkling Wine, it’s hard to believe that it is a domestic sparkling and that it only costs $21.99! What sets this domestic sparkling apart from the rest is how dry it tastes. I always have a problem with how high the dosage levels are in domestic sparkling wines but not with the Roederer Estate Brut. The nose is bright and lively with fresh pear, tangerine and clean bread yeast notes. And while the palate is friendly and accessible with riper pome fruit and clean melon flavors, this domestic brut finishes precise and focused.
