This is an assertive, flavorful and robust wine, with a medium to full body, a mouthfilling texture and fine-beaded bubbles. A creamy viscosity and wonderful layers of butter, apple, vanilla and ginger make for a delicious palate. *Editors' Choice* (JG)
Seamless and silky, showing an almost effortless sense of complexity, with notes of lemon and pear paired with toasty brioche, fresh ginger and hazelnut details. *Top 100 Wines of 2018, Smart Buys* (TF)
First overall in the sparkling category. Louis Roederer's outpost in California's cool Anderson Valley is a stylistic chip off the old block. The blend includes a considerable portion of reserve wine that's been oak-aged, making for a rich, weighty mouthful of creamy bubbles. Malolactic fermentation is suppressed in order to preserve acidity but a healthy dosage of 12g/l adds to its girth. What this sparkler lacks in zip, it makes up in texture and concentration. Lots of baked apple and toasted cashews here. (MM)
As fresh as crunchy apples in the fall, this wine opens to beautiful richness with air. There’s toasty character from the lees aging and brighter notes of red fruit, hinting at raspberries. A clean sparkler with impressive flavor depth, this serves equally well as a refreshing aperitif or a substantial dinner partner with seafood sausage.
The Roederer Estate version is a perennial favorite among basic Brut bottlings hereabouts, and this latest version maintains its accustomed place as one of the more rewarding examples at the price. It is at once bright and youthfully fruity with comfortably joined yeast in play at every stop, and, from its careful balance and quiet complexity to its very fine and unending mousse, it is hard not to appreciate its precision and winemaking polish. Even at its winery-suggested price, it is a bona fide best buy, but it is more likeable yet when found at a discount as it often is. *One Star, Good Value*
