Roederer Estate Sparkling Wine Recommended by A Little Gourmet Everyday

Roederer Estate Sparkling Wine Recommended by A Little Gourmet Everyday

The theme for the February Food Bloggers Los Angeles Meeting was Chocolate and Bubbles.  I ran out of time to make any sweet treats so I brought my favorite sparkling wine.

I thought for years I didn’t like champagne.  Then I tried a very expensive champagne and thought I only liked very pricy champagne.  Then a few years ago I stumbled across  Roederer Sparkling Wine.  You can buy it all over town for a price range of $18.00-$23.00 and it is delicious.  More delicious than many sparkling wines or champagnes double, triple, and even quadruple it’s price.  This is an easy way to add A Little Gourmet to your Everyday.  I have a bottle chilling at all times.

Here are some notes from the winemaker:

The Roederer Estate Brut is crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavors. It is fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavor.

Champagne/Sparkling Wine Recommendations

  • Jaume Serra Cristaliino Brut Cava by Eating RulesJaume Serra Cristalino Brut Cava ($7 “but tastes like $20+”) — Andrew Wilder of Eating Rules
  • NV Presto Prosecco Brut ($10-$12), a “price performer” — Alison Ashton of Nourish Network
  • Brut Roederer Estate Mixed Vintage ($20) — Jennifer Daskevich of A Little Gourmet Everyday
  • Colbert Eco Brut (sugar-free organic sparkling wine; $25) — Caren Magill of The Fit Habit
  • Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvée ($10.99). “When serving mimosas there is no need to buy expensive bubbly, but naturally you don’t want to serve your guests headache-inducing sparkling wines or champagne either. The Brut Cuvée is Barefoot’s most traditional bubbly and tastes of green apple and jasmine with hints of kiwi and peach flavors which bubble up for a crisp finish and, in my opinion, make a delightful Mimosa,” said Priscilla Willis of She’s Cookin’.


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
