  • Quartet Anderson Valley Brut Roederer 12% 75cl
    Jean-Claude Rouzaud, then president of Champagne Louis Roederer and fifth generation descendant of the founder, selected the 580-acre Anderson Valley vineyard and winery site in 1981. Rouzaud, who has since handed down the family tradition and position to son Frdric Rouzaud, believed that estate-owned vineyards were essential to ensure top quality wine, and had searched California for ideal growing conditions throughout the course of several years. There are four distinct vineyards on the estate - hence the name Quartet - from which all the grapes are sourced. The estate covers 500 acres in total. The Anderson Valley is 125 miles north of San Francisco and just a few miles inland from the rugged Mendocino coast thus giving it a similar cool climate to Champagne. The grapes used are the same as used in Champagne - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

    60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir

    Wine Making
    Roederer's winemaking style is based on two elements: complete ownership of its vineyards and the addition of oak-aged reserve wines to each year's blend or cuve. All the grapes for the wines are grown on the Estate. Oak-aged wines from the Estate's reserve cellars are added to the blend, creating a multi-vintage cuve in the traditional Roederer style. Only the cuve (first pressing of 120 gallons/tonne) is used; no premiere or deuxieme taille. The fermentation takes place in high-grade stainless steel tanks at 65 degrees Fahrenheit. No minimal malolactic fermentation is used in order to ensure that the wines age well and retain the fresh, somewhat austere style that is one of the characteristics of Roederer wines.

    Tasting Notes
    Crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut flavours. It is fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavour.

    Described by Robert Joseph as one of the most beautiful vineyards on the planet the rolling hills, sweeping vistas, bluffs and stands of gum trees create a spectacular backdrop. The name originates from an aboriginal word meaning red earth and applies directly to the iron rich red soils of the region. These are classic central Victorian wines, dense, powerful but with a uniquely fine and balanced structure and a marked tannic backbone that allows them to age beautifully. The young but already renowned winemaker Loic Le Calvet studied his craft in Bordeaux but was tempted away to coax the best out of these unique and now fully mature vineyards. Taltarni also have vineyards in Tasmania which contribute to the production of their flagship sparkling wines including the signature Brut Tach Ros.

The vineyard is planted with 40% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 21% Pinot Meunier. The Henners name derives from Lawrences French ancestry.
