Roederer Estate L'Ermitage Brut 2004 LD

Add To Cart

Disgorged January 2020 after nearly 15 years on the yeast (178 months to be precise), the wine expresses the full range of aromatics that is typical of a Late Disgorged méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine: The pressure is low at opening showing, a reminder of its age and ensuing slow loss of carbonation. It makes for a very gentle and delicate effervescence on the tongue. Aromas of brioche and then flint welcome you. The first sip reveals bright acid and quince jam aromatics. Mushroom, clove and anise seed follow. As the wine warms in your glass, more aromatics of caramelized crust and honey develop. It is a mouthwatering experience as the acidic core of the wine lingers and keeps the wine vibrant.

L’Ermitage vintage 2004 was the 14th release of the Tête de Cuvée made by Roederer Estate. It was introduced in Fall of 2013 and garnered incredible press, including ranking No. 1 of the Top 100 best wines of the year by Wine Enthusiast magazine.

"Golden apple, quince and pie crust followed by hay, dried chamomile leaves, aged comte cheese and blanched almonds. Full-bodied, creamy and fine beads with refreshing acidity. Beautiful structure with depth and length. Layers of zesty flavorsome notes on the mid-palate and in the finish. Salted butter at the end." -- James Suckling, December 2023

"A bubbly of opulence and dimension, this is boldly structured yet light on its feet, with expressive baked pear and green apple flavors highlighted by roasted hazelnut and crème brûlée accents." -- Tim Fish, June 30, 2024
