Winemaker Notes

Fine tiny bubbles and a long lasting mousse are the usual footprints of the L'Ermitage cuvee. Delicate aromas boast hazelnut, pastry, and pear. Mouthfeel is very pure, focused freshness wrapped in yeast creaminess. Lemon curd and nutty characters play together to give a very European tasting experience.

Blend: 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir

COMMENTARY: Roederer Estate L'Ermitage is one of the world's top sparkling wines. In tasting through the years, I have always found the wines to exhibit superb balance and breed. TASTING NOTES: The 2011 L'Ermitage by Roederer Estate shows precise green apple and mineral aromas and flavors. The wine's palate is finely structured. Pair its crisp finish with fresh salmon sashimi with a light accent of lemon zest. (Tasted: April 4, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

Dry and nicely mature, this complex wine is always among California's best bubblies. It combines great balance, tiny bubbles and some very interesting flavors that make it as appealing as a well-cellared white Burgundy at its peak. Hints of toast, butter and almond fill the aroma, and lemon, crisp apple and baking spices fill the palate. It has lively acidity that's softened by a good sense of body. Editors’ Choice

Wine Spectator

Opulent and lush, but elegantly complex, with vivid fresh ginger, cinnamon roll and red berry aromas opening to rich, seamless apple and almond flavors that unfurl on the long finish. Drink now.
