Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Finalist. Yeasty, ambrosial, tight bouquet. Vigorous bead. Creamy. lemon curd flavors are highlighted by tasty lees. A flinty, leesy style of sparkler. Has the weight for roasted chicken and the finesse for fancier fare. (May 2011)
DOMAINE CARNEROS 2006 DOMAINE CARNEROS BRUT LE REVE BLANC DE BLANCS
"Light, bright yellow. Aromas of pear, lime and anise, with toasty lees and honey accents adding depth. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering intense orchard fruit flavors and a hint of dusty talc. Closes on a nervy, dry note, with very good clarity and lingering spiciness. I really like this wine's balance and vivacity." Steve Tanzer International Wine Cellar 91 points (2005 vintage)
|Delicious with double or triple cream cheeses, fish, shellfish and poultry.
|The first and only U.S. sparkling winery with 100% of its estate vineyards certified organic, Domaine Carneros also installed the largest photovoltaic solar collection system on any winery in the world in 2003.
