23 Dec The final entry in our 5-wine holiday countdown: Roederer Estate non-vintage Brut Sparkling Wine!
We will stop short of saying “we’ve saved the best for last”. There will be no disparaging of the previous four in our five-wine holiday countdown as they are all darn good.
Roederer Estate’s non-vintage Brut is outstanding.
It fits…perfectly…the Pat The Wine Guy buying profile: great quality, good price and easy to find.
When all of the critics agree, it’s usually a good sign. And the critics fall all over each other in their praise of this sparkling wine. Wine Enthusiast – 92 points. Wine.com-92 points. Connoisseurs’ Guide – 90 points. Decanter – 90 points. Wine Spectator – 92 points.
It’s simultaneously rich/creamy but also has a nice acidic edge, ideal for multiple occasions: pre-functioning, during a meal (would pair very well with crab/seafood) and general celebrating.
The Roederer family has a long legacy of wine production in Champagne. They apply their expertise to their California (Anderson Valley) operation where this sparkler comes from. They are pros and it shows.
I don’t know. Maybe we did save the best for last? Try the Roederer, then you be the judge!
With that, Pat The Wine Guy wishes you and yours a fabulous holiday season and we’ll be back at you in the new year!
