Celebrate Good Times Come On!


So we didn’t save that second bottle of 1999 Roederer Brut L’Ermitage. We got some really great news today that had to be celebrated, and since it was Matt’s good news, he picked the bottle. I am now on the hunt for more of these delicious babies as Roederer does not ship to Virginia. Sigh. They did tell me when we were visiting that they hoped to be able to ship to more states soon….but since August I’ve been checking their website and no dice yet. For the moment I will stare wistfully at this picture and imagine the bubbles that once were.

  2. Hope may be on the way. The winery where I work just got a permit for Virginia this week, so don’t give up.

  3. Looks good ^_^ Is that an actual French champagne?

  4. […] I truly do.  We first bought this wine while on our honeymoon nearly three years ago.  Tasting the Roederer Estate ‘99 L’ermitage Brut was the first time I stood up and took notice of a sparkling wine.  Sure, I’d had other sparkling wines and Champagnes before, but none really struck me as worth going back to until this one.  At the time, we bought 2 bottles and a Magnum…the Magnum disappeared quickly at our West Coast wedding reception and the other two bottles went the same way in short order as we celebrated events at the WannabeWino house.  On our trip to CA last spring, I was determined to return to Roederer and get some more.  I did, though this time it was much pricier…we bought to bottles and drank the first with our fresh steamed crab legs on Valentine’s Day.  The wine cost us $60 at the winery, clocked in at 12% alcohol by volume, and had a traditional cork closure.  You can read my two previous reviews of this wine on the blog here and here.
