Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut Rose NV
Wine Enthusiast: Rated as Excellent, extremely well made and highly recommended. "Almost as pale as a brut, with a touch of salmon color, and deeply flavored, this Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend has subtle, inviting flavors of cherries, strawberries, orange zest, vanilla and freshly baked brioche. It’s very fine in the mousse, with a silky mouthfeel. Really marked by elegance and structure." Dec 2009
Winery: "The Roederer Estate Brut Rosé is full and round with smooth flavors and fine persistent bubbles. The extra measure of Chardonnay contributes elegance and austerity, which balance nicely with the delicate fruitiness of the Pinot Noir."
Wired For Wine: "Deeply flavored, elegant, fine mousse and a silky mouthfeel"... Where do we sign?? This Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Brut Rosé is the perfect enhancement to any meal. Pour your first glasses of fine bubbles and prepare to be wowed as you enjoy them with bite-sized potato latkes with smoked salmon, caviar and tarragon crème fraîche. Holy delicious Batman! The tantalizing red fruit, citrus peel, vanilla and brioche notes in this beautifully structured California bubbly will match handsomely with everything from fish to shellfish, pork, and even seared tuna and rare lamb. Have at it! We will be reserving several bottles for Thanksgiving day. Roast turkey with shallot gravy and oyster stuffing is what's on the menu. Talk about your happy holidays... A classic French bouillabaisse loaded with big chunks of lobster might just cause a stampede for seconds, so make sure you prepare enough. Prosciutto-wrapped pork loin with roasted apples is a fantastic homage to fall, and made for this Brut Rosé. Open another bottle and serve up a mature French Brie with sea salt and olive oil crackers. For those craving something sweet, make it tart cherry croissant bread pudding with crème anglaise. Was it Willy Nelson who said "I can't wait to get on the Roederer again"?
