Notes From The Winemaker:
Fine bubbles and creamy finish are the usual footprints of the L’Ermitage wine. Aromatics of hazelnut, brioche and flint create a mysterious and layered first contact. Mouthfeel is inviting quince jelly aromas and bright acidity with layered texture. Dosage is balanced with the acid and structure brought by the reserve wines from cask.

Roederer Estate wines are made with juice from just the cuvée pressing; no première or deuxième taille is used. The concept of the vintage L’Ermitage is the same one that is used in Champagne: only the best of the vintage is selected. These are exceptional wines that create a “noble” blend that allows for longer aging, which produces a fine wine with elegance and finesse.

The wine for the reserve dosage added to the L’Ermitage 2013 was aged five years in a French oak cask. Following disgorgement, L’Ermitage 2013 was aged an additional five months on the cork prior to release. Disgorged in June 2019.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points & #42 on top 100 of 2020 - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"A panoply of subtle aromas and delicate flavors wrapped in a silky, slightly crisp texture give this medium-bodied wine a great sense of elegance. Fresh ginger, biscuits, toasted almonds and mild cherry nuances fill the palate. Best through 2025." Jim Gordon (12/1/2020)

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 L'Ermitage Brut is the current release of L'Ermitage and was disgorged in June of 2019. 2013 was the beginning of a long period of drought, and winemaker Arnaud Weyrich feels that it brings this vintage "concentration, phenolics and texture—this wine has body." The nose is open and inviting, golden apples mingling with toast, mushrooms, honey and crushed stone. The medium-bodied palate, with eight grams per liter dosage, has pure fruits tactfully accented by earthy, toasty notes. It's energetic but rounded, supported by a finely beaded mousse, and it finishes long and layered. 3,500 cases were made." - Erin Brooks (10th Sep 2020)

93 Points - Wine & Spirits Magazine:
“L’Ermitage is a selection of the estate’s top fruit of the vintage. The 2013 is 52 percent chardonnay and 48 percent pinot noir, with four percent barrel-aged reserve wine from the 2011 vintage. It’s mouthwatering and dynamic, with layers of flavor, both fresh apple and more mature notes. An elegant, satisfying sparkler with dimension, it’s fit for a plateau de fruits de mer.” - Josh Greene (Oct 2020)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Luscious and creamy, with succulent baked pear, caramelized nut and vibrant lemon flavors that take on richness and polish on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 4,136 cases made." - TF (Oct 31, 2020)
