About This Wine
Roederer Estate exudes French flair in California’s Anderson Valley.
Champagne Louis Roederer has been crafting fine sparking wines in the Champagne region of France for more than 200 years. Roederer's unique winemaking style is based on two elements: complete ownership of its vineyards, and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year’s cuvee. The approach virtually guarantees wines of the highest quality.
The Roederer philosophy has guided the development of Roederer Estate, located 125 miles north of San Francisco near the Mendocino coast. Since 1982, Roederer Estate has been quietly developing its own vineyards and crafting fine wines from the Anderson Valley.
Roederer Estate’s Anderson Valley Brut debuted in October 1988, followed by the winery’s first vintage cuvee, L’Ermitage, in 1993. The current Brut release, which marries multiple vintages with oak-aged reserve wines, is another in a long line of crisp and elegant wines from Roederer’s acclaimed Anderson Valley vineyards.
Champagne is a sparkling wine produced by inducing the in-bottle secondary fermentation of the wine to effect carbonation. It is produced exclusively within the Champagne region of France.
