Roederer Estate Brut 2000
Roederer Estate Brut, the first California sparkling wine produced by Champagne Louis Roederer, builds upon a 200-year tradition of fine winemaking that has made Roederer champagne among the most sought-after in the world.
Roederer's winemaking style is based on two elements: ownership of its own
vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or
cuvée. All the grapes for the Anderson Valley wines are grown on the
Estate. Each year, the winemaker selects a portion of the best wines for
aging in Center of France oak casks. Aged from one to three years, wines
from this reserve cellar are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage
cuvée in the traditional Roederer style, known for its body, finesse and
depth of flavor.
The Roederer Estate Brut debuted in October 1988, and has since established
its reputation as one of California's premier sparklers, remaining true to
the heritage of excellence and style of its French forebears.
