Excellent balance and great finesse. Delicate apple and lemon characters, soft and fresh on the palate,with citrus and fresh honey characters on a long finish. It is well-balanced with little acidity-an elegantand very complex wine.
Wine Maker Notes
Roederer Estate wines are made with just the cuvée pressing; no première ordeuxième taille is used. Thewines for the dosage and disgorging liquor added to the L’Ermitage were chosen from five different winesto find the best balance and complexity. As with previous vintages, the blend is specially crafted to increasethe wine’s ability to age. After disgorging, the L’Ermitage is aged at least six months in the bottle beforerelease.
L’Ermitage suits wonderfully with chicken and cream sauces, smoked salmon and crab, as well as fettucinewith prawns in a sparkling butter sauce.
