Buttload of buttered toast, pecan, marzipan, and some overwhelmed golden pear. Delicious in small doses.

Pear and green apple on the nose, almond butter, and caramel glazed toast on the palate. Beautiful.

Nose has oxidized red apple, warm ginger, butter croissant, light apple cider notes and toasted hazelnut.

Palate has buttered lemon mousse, green apple peel, pear flesh, dried ginger, crushed granite and faint carmel, warmed.

A very nice bottle, but not the same level as our last, a stunning 2005.

Founded in 1982, Roederer Estate sparkling wines reflect the cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley, home to their family-owned estate's 600 acres of vineyards. Tiny bubbles, nice mousse with toasty fruit aromas for this blend of 52% Chardonnay & 48% Pinot Noir. Flavors of apple and nutty pear, biscuit notes, creamy, great mouthfeel. Lingering finish ending with spicy mineral notes. Smooth and crisp!

Great bottle of champagne, bright fruit, not to high acidity with lovely minerality.
