Cristal’s Sexy California Sister Winery — Did you know that Roederer Estate in Anderson Valley is the sister winery of Louis Roederer in France?  In France, their top Champagne is Cristal, but in California their flagship Sparkling wine is their L’Ermitage – this wine right here, which they only make in exceptional vintages.  Their winemaking style helping guide their success is based upon two very important elements; complete ownership of their vineyards with meticulous farming, along with oak-aging their Reserve wines.  L’Ermitage spends and impressive 5 years in oak casks, which lends to their style of body, finesse and depth of flavor.   With 95 and 97 Point scores from two of the Country’s top critics, this is a truly stunning vintage of L’Ermitage. At under $50, this is simply one of the greatest sparkling wines produced in the New World.

Highly Recommend a Case for Entertaining, Holidays, and Gifts…

From Wine Enthusiast, “Luxurious and layered, this nicely mature wine has a broad range of complex aromas and flavors, from fig to mushroom to butter and baking spices that ride a supple texture and linger for a long finish. The very fine bead, plush texture and a creamy richness that verges on sweetness are practically irresistible. Best through 2025.” 97 Points, Cellar Selection

From The Wine Spectator, “Extravagant, yet balanced and refined, with lush, crisp brioche, fresh ginger and spice, roasted hazelnut and Asian pear flavors that fan out on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2020.” 95 Points


Louis Roederer is one of the most iconic names in Champagne with more than 200 years of traditional winemaking.  In the early 1980’s they discovered that the Anderson Valley, just North of Sonoma, was ideally suited for grapes used to make sparkling wines.  The area has a cooler climate with well-drained soils, and the close proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides a gentle cycle of warm days and cool nights, allowing the grapes to slowly mature and develop full flavors.
