L'ermitage, Roederer Estate's special Tete de Cuvee, is a sparkling wine made only in exceptional years from pre-selected, Estate grown grapes. It is created by using the traditional French methode and adding special oak-aged reserve wines to each blend.
Fine tiny bubbles and a long lasting mousse are the usual footprints of the L'ermitage cuvee. There are great notes of tarte tatin: baked apples and buttery crust, with notes of apricot and delicate vanilla bean. The mouthfeel is creamy, expresses flavors of quince and bread crust, and has a clean and crisp, yet long finish.
