2009 Roederer Estate L'Ermitage Brut
USA, Anderson Valley , Roederer Estate
Chardonnay, Pinot noir
Very delicate salmon colors are the trademark of the L’Ermitage Rosé. The aromatics are of peach pie and clove spices. Mouthfeel is full of energy with bright acid and cranberry notes, a mid-palate width brought by the pinot noir and the creaminess from the 7 years of aging on the yeasts. The finish is long and delicate with layers of fruit and spices.
This wine’s clean raspberry freshness is underlined by a salty tang and the yeasty scent of rising bread. Mouthfilling with a gentle, persistent mousse, it feels complete and integrated, a rosé to pour with Dungeness crab.
