Roederer Estate, Anderson Valley, Estate Bottled Rosé Brut NV

628x471This rosé brut from the Roderer Estate was recommended by Rebecca Murphy writing in the Dallas News, which she said would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Roederer Estate is in the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County, about two hours north of San Francisco, and a few miles from the Pacific Ocean.

Of this rosé she said: If Valentine’s Day says sparkling wine for you, here’s the perfect one to make your day. It’s from the California outpost of the French Champagne house of Louis Roederer, so you know they know something about making sparkling wine.

“It is a pale salmon pink colour, with oh-so-tiny bubbles rising festively in the glass. Delicate aromas of raspberries and citrus intertwine with wisps of vanilla and freshly baked brioche. Those bubbles dance on the tongue, animating strawberry, raspberry and pear flavours layered with rich yeasty, toasty notes. Serve it with a baked salmon with a butter-lemon sauce.”

Price: $22.99 – $36.99
