Roederer Estate Brut Vintage L'Ermitage 2003

Roederer Estate Brut Vintage L'Ermitage 750ML 2003           
Sku: 050032

Roederer Estate’s sparkling wines are produced using only Estate grown grapes from the winery’s own vineyards. Carrying on the tradition of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, special oak-aged reserve wines are added to each blend. The multi-vintage Anderson Valley Brut debuted in 1988 to great acclaim., followed by the Brut Rosé and Roederer Estate’s L’Ermitage.

Tasting notes
Excellent balance and great finesse. Delicate appleand lemon characters, soft and fresh on the palate, with citrus and fresh honey characters on a long finish. It is well-balanced with little acidity-an elegant and very complex wine.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Feb 2012)
The 2003 LErmitage emerges from the glass with a rich tapestry of dried apricots, hazelnuts, spices, dried flowers and orange zest. This is a fairly oxidative, burnished style, with considerable depth and textural volume. I would prefer to drink the wine over the next few years, while the fruit retains its energy. The 2003 LErmitage is 52% Chardonnay and 48% Pinot Noir with the addition of 4% reserve wines from the 1999 vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.
 Wine Spectator 94 points (Oct 5 2011)
Sleek and elegant, with apple blossom and spiced ginger aromas that lead to rich yet delicate flavors of baked pear and crème brûlée, mixed with crisp citrus. Finishes with a vibrant, mineral-laced acidity. Drink now through 2016.—T.F.

Wine maker notes
Roederer Estate wines are made with just the cuvée pressing; no première ordeuxième taille is used. The wines for the dosage and disgorging liquor added to the L’Ermitage were chosen from five different wines to find the best balance and complexity. As with previous vintages, the blend is specially crafted to increase the wine’s ability to age. After disgorging, the L’Ermitage is aged at least six months in the bottle before release.

Food pairing
L’Ermitage suits wonderfully with chicken and cream sauces, smoked salmon and crab, as well as fettucine with prawns in a sparkling butter sauce.
