    Roederer is one of the best when it comes to California sparkling wines. Their Anderson Valley estate sparking is fantastic, but the L'Ermitage is even a step up from that. This wine is only made in certain vintages that are decidedly great with added reserve wine, 2006 and 2007 in this particular bottling. It has fine bubbles and flavors of hazelnut, citrus and toast. Delicious!

    Before I became the Domestic Buyer in the Hollywood store, I was the Champagne liaison and everyone who knew me back them will tell you how obsessed I was (and still am) with it. And even though I like to think that I never did, I'm sure I probably made statements here and there about how all other sparkling wines made throughout the world are inferior to Champagne. But every know and then I have a bottle of bubbles that knocks my socks off and makes me eat my own words. I've always been a huge fan of Roederer Estate, even saying it's the closest domestic producer to Champagne, and the 2011 Roederer l'Ermitage Brut is stunning! The aromatics explode out of the glass with fresh quince and white stone fruit and subtle hints of chalkiness. The palate comes alive with mouth tingling vibrancy and bright acidity. Subtle layers and a nutty, elegant finish hint to the wines aging potential.​

    L'Ermitage is the top of the line for Roederer Estate in Anderson Valley, and this wine is a stunning example of what can happen when Champenois culture and artistry meets California terroir. As is the case with all Roederer Estate wines, only the first pressing is used, but L'Ermitage is a cut above, with only the best base wines of a particularly exceptional vintage, with oak barrel aged reserve wines added to the mix. The result is a sparkling wine of extreme distinction and complexity, with a fine beaded, broad palate. A wonderful balance is struck here between sensuous, rich texture and clean, saline minerality, and the finish is persistent.
