2013 L' Ermitage by Roederer Estate Brut Sparkling
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 méthode traditionelle and adds special oak-aged reserve wines to each blend. L’Ermitage debuted with the 1989 vintage.
Fine bubbles and creamy finish are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage wine. Aromatics of hazelnut, brioche and flint create a mysterious and layered first contact. Mouthfeel is inviting quince jelly aromas and bright acidity with layered texture. Dosage is balanced with the acid and structure brought by the reserve wines from cask.
