Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut Sparkling Wine (1.5L)

SKU #480026 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The current release of the NV Estate Brut is made up mainly of fruit from the 2015 vintage. It is a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir and was made with about ten grams per liter dosage. Disgorged in October of 2018, it has a fresh, open nose with pure fruit expression: crushed apples, pears and lemon peel mingle with touches of stone, flowers and toast. The medium-bodied palate offers a lovely dichotomy of toasty fruits with uplifted citrusy, minerally accents with a finely beaded mousse, and it finishes long and ultra fresh.

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)

Outer quote mark I would happily drink this wine every day if there weren’t so many other wines in the world to taste. Its wonderful play of creamy yet kinetic textures, the custardy, limey flavours, and its impeccable focus all add up to one of the best ways possible to greet 6pm after a long work day. Roederer Estate was, in my opinion, the first California sparkling producer to achieve complexity in its wines – especially in the estate’s prestige cuvée, L’Ermitage. The Brut (sold as Quartet in the UK) is generally 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir. (KM) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Delicate and svelte, with apple puff pastry and floral citrus flavors accented by snappy mineral and fresh ginger notes. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark More than a bit reminiscent of a bright and lively Blanc de Blancs, this fresh-as-can be Brut very much inflects to its majority percentage of Chardonnay and is long on insistent, always complementary yeast with an especially fine, equally insistent stream of tiny bubbles. From its fruit and its autolysis to its dosage and cleansing acidity, it is a wine that shows excellent integration and balance, and, if neither as layered nor as complex as its cousins made with extended tirage time, it is a buoyant, exceptionally well-crafted sparkler that capably delivers the goods at a noteworthy price. *Good Value* Inner quote mark (12/2020)

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.
