Roederer Estate L'Ermitage Brut Rosé 2015
Fine tiny bubbles and a long lasting mousse are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage cuvée. Pale salmon color. Mineral and light berry aromatic notes. Flavors of red apple tart with bright acid wrapped in yeasty creaminess. Pinot Noir width and structure, but light on its feet. Mouthwatering finish.

"A very intense rosé with a strawberry tart and caramelized pie crust character. Full-bodied with a firmness and framing that gives a real sense of structure yet a solid density. It’s open and agile at the same time. Real presence to this." -- JamesSuckling.com, December 2023

"This effusively aromatic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Roederer Estate is absolutely delightful. L’Ermitage, both Brut and Rosé, is a special tête de cuvée. This sparkling wine is made only from pre-selected, estate-grown grapes in exceptional years—aromatics of pink cotton candy, ripe apricot flesh and red apple peel. The palate is exquisite and refined. Candied peach, blood orange and a touch of wet chalk to finish." -- Clive Pursehouse, July 2023
