Thickly moussed, Roederer’s Brut, 60% Chardonnay blended with 40% Pinot Noir, aged two years on yeast is affordable and luxurious. A gorgeous, very dry sparkling wine with aromatics of honey, raisin, apple and pear, it is rich and soft and offers both depth and length. It’s an ideal marriage of bright acidity and ripe fruit character. Wine Enthusiast 92 PointsFocused and vibrant, with aromas of creamy apple, cinnamon and hazelnut leading to complex, layered flavors of lemon custard, mineral and almond. The finish lingers. Drink now through 2015. Wine Spectator 91 Points

Wine Enthusiast #1 Top 100 Wines of 2013 97 PointsThis is an exquisite sparkling wine made from 52% Chardonnay and 48% Pinot Noir, concocted into a special blend and aged for almost six years in oak cask. After disgorgement it was given another five months to sit in bottle before release. It has such freshness on the palate, such enviable acidity, that it’s hard to believe the grapes were picked so long ago. Crisp apple dominates, with just a trace of yeastiness on the nose and palate. This is a delicious wine. L'Ermitage, Roederer Estate's special Tête de Cuvée, is a sparkling wine made only in exceptional years from pre-selected, estate-grown grapes. Carrying on the tradition of Champagne Louis Roederer in France, Roederer Estate produces its sparkling wines in the traditional French methode and adds special oak-aged reserve wines to each blend.Impeccably focused and elegant, with layers of complexity that open slowly. Floral aromas of red apple and lemon tart lead to vibrant and delicately opulent flavors of mineral, raspberry and fresh ginger. A hint of hazelnut chimes in on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

This sparkling wine is a heck of a value. A blend of 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay aged two years on its lees prior to being bottled, it offers tiny, well-defined bubbles, persistent effervescence, and fresh brioche and lemon custard notes intertwined with hints of apple skins and tangerines. Fresh, medium-bodied and crisp, this delightful sparkler sells at a realistic price. It should last for several years.Wine Advocate 90 Points
The generous, bursting fruitful character is immediately present in the aromas of this Mirabelle Brut Rose bottling. Fresh strawberry and raspberry blend with the essences of watermelon candy, berry gum drops, and red licorice. The palate is rich and expansive with bright, youthful cherry and cranberry flavors mellowed by the baked caramel and toasted vanilla notes developed over the course of the wine's life in the bottle.
