Mission Briefing

Codename:

Tiny Bubbles

Just released: Roederer Estate’s brilliant, top scoring 2006 L’Ermitage is reason to celebrate. Widely considered California’s top luxury bubbly, it’s made only in years where quality is near perfect. Nearly perfect indeed, with ratings in Wine Enthusiast of 97pts & Wine Spectator 93pts - it’s the top scoring sparkling wine in America right now. One would expect to pay $100-$200 a bottle for this quality from Champagne. Think of this wine as California Cristal. The only problem is that it will sell out in one day, so if you want NYE to pop like a King (or a Krug), you need to step up right now.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pale straw with tiny bubbles.

Smell:

Exotic scents of hazelnut, butter cookie, meyer lemon oil, fig, orchard fruit, and toasted bread.

Taste:

Dense and complex ripe orchard flavors with a nutty, toasty richness.

Finish:

Creamy but with lemon acidity, toasty apple, pear, and nougat. Flavors linger on the palate for nearly a minute.

Pairing:

Raw oysters. Need we say more?
