Roederer Estate L'Ermitage Brut 2017
Fine tiny bubbles and a long lasting mousse are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage cuvée. Rich aromatics of butter pastry and Asian pear. Broad entry, clean mouthfeel. Quince freshness and texture. Soft and gentle finish. A L’Ermitage release from a warmer vintage with power and richness.

"Delightful citrus notes with yellow apple, faint white flowers, sourdough, brioche and a hint of hazelnut. Full-bodied with a very delicate and fine bead, and crisp acidity. Beautiful finesse with an amusing transparency and freshness to it. Very refreshing, too. Fine bubbles. Structured. Drink with meat." -- James Suckling, December 2023
"7 Stellar Sparkling Wines to Pop This Valentine's Day" | Robb Report
Roederer Estate "is often hailed as one of the most consistent producers of fine California sparkling wines by many of our colleagues. The 2017 vintage is no exception; it is straw colored in the glass with persistent mousse and perlage. Aromas of freshly baked bread, lemon curd, and caramelized pineapple pave the way for flavors of candied apricot, white peach, and Bartlett pear with a zing of zesty brightness in the finish.” -- Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jenssen, Feb. 2024
