Roederer Estate Brut Alexander Valley Sparkling Wine Review by Billy
Palate: tiny tight bubbles that prickle rather than sparkle. Strong acid core with citrus rind flavors at the back of the tongue.
Finish: lingering floral and citrus notes.
Overall: I paid $24 for this California sparkling wine at a local wine shop. The structure is very well done and the complexity and elegance of the nose rounds out the simplicity and tightness of the palate flavors.
