With 95 points from Decanter and able to draw upon a 200-year old tradition of winemaking excellence, it is no surprise that many people consider Roederer's Quartet Brut to be America's greatest sparkling wine.

An elegant, multi-vintage benchmark cuvée that is a must buy for any fan of sparkling wine, this is genuine top-drawer Champagne quality at a snip of the price!

The brainchild of the fabulous Louis Roederer Champagne house, the winery is nestled in Mendocino County’s cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley, which offers the cool climate and well-drained soils that are ideally suited to the Louis Roederer winemaking style - all about body, finesse and depth of flavour.

About the wine

Quartet is crisp and elegant with complex pear, spice and hazelnut notes on the nose. In the glass, it has a very fine mousse and is fresh and lightly fruity with great finesse and depth of flavour. This is a sparkling wine that stands out for its sheer quality - Champagne quality with delicious ripe fruit and flavours.

The winemaking approach used is based on the ownership of vineyards and the addition of oak aged reserve wines (5%) to produce a multi-vintage cuvée (of up to five vintages) in the traditional Champagne Louis Roederer style. These reserve wines, which have been selected from the best parcels of each harvest, are used to create extra complexity and are matured slowly for up to five years in large oak casks which are specially imported from France.

The blend comprises 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir – the opposite proportions from those used in Champagne Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier. Only the cuvée (first pressing of 545 litres/ton) is used, gently pressed from the pulp with minimal skin contact. Fermentation at 18°C in high-grade stainless steel tanks with no malolactic fermentation ensures the wine ages well and retains the fresh Champagne Louis Roederer style, even after a minimum of two years on its lees.

About the winery

Roederer Estate winery is nestled in Mendocino County’s cool, fog-shrouded Anderson Valley. As the Californian outpost of Champagne Louis Roederer, Quartet builds upon a centuries-old tradition of fine winemaking and has established a reputation as one of California’s premier sparkling wines.

Jean-Claude Rouzaud, former president of Champagne Louis Roederer and sixth generation descendant of the founder, selected the 235 hectare Anderson Valley vineyard and winery site in 1982. He believed that estate-owned vineyards were essential to ensure top quality wine, and had searched California for ideal growing conditions for several years.

About the vineyard

The Anderson Valley offers the cool climate and well-drained soils that are ideally suited to the Louis Roederer winemaking style. The region’s proximity to the ocean gives rise to a gentle cycle of warm days and cool nights, allowing grapes to mature slowly on the vine and develop full varietal character. To achieve an optimum balance of acids and sugars in the estate’s grapes, Rouzaud introduced an ‘open lyre’ trellis system for training the vines on moveable wires, providing more exposure to sunlight than traditional trellising methods.

There are four distinct vineyards on the estate – hence the name Quartet – from which all the grapes are sourced.

"The fruit flavors are apparent, fresh and lively in this medium-bodied, beautifully balanced brut. Light pear and pineapple aromas are followed by richer pear and citrus flavors, and subtle hints of baking spices, almonds and a nice earthy touch emerge."

17.5/20 - Jancis Robinson
"Cheese, dairy and yeast. Very stylised, very confident. Odd at first, but increasingly appealing. An acquired taste, perhaps, but clearly very well executed."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
