Wine Spectator, September 2016
A luxurious sparkler, with toasty brioche, mineral and lemon brûlée aromas and rich, complex flavors of crisp apple and raspberry, showing accents of fresh ginger and spice. Drink now through 2017. — T.F.

The 2009 Roederer Estate l’Ermitage Brut is super fresh and bright on the nose. It’s surprisingly mineral-laden, with chalky notes that gorgeously underscore the crisp golden apple, gardenia, lemon curd, and ripe pineapple aromas. On the palate, it is all about texture - the bubbles are soft and velvety and create a plushness in the wine that is supremely enticing. All this adds to the natural creaminess of the wine. Flavors of stone fruit, toasted granola and drawn cream are persistent but the wine never feels overbearing and it has electric acidity. Pleasurable on its own though equally nice as a foil to a wide range of foods (ideally, a great match to shellfish!), enjoy now through 2022.

L'Ermitage debuted with the 1989 vintage.
