Roederer Estate's regular sparkling wines are among our favorites, and this "reserve" wine is top of the line. Superb sparkler that will go nose-to-nose with the Frenchies. Excellent yeasty, mature nose with beautiful, tiny bubbles that caress rather than assault one's palate. Wonderful, creamy mouth feel, and (unlike most California sparkling wines) some real flavor interest, with a midrange taste that reminded me a bit of kirsch. California sparklers don't get much better than this. - HK 2000-10-23
