Domaine Carneros "Le Reve" (by Taittinger) Brut Sparkling Wine 2013 (Carneros, CA)
Producer Notes: This classic Le Reve displays lovely notes of toasted brioche, honeysuckle, yuzu, citrus blossoms and a hint of ginger. The palate opens up to honeycomb and lychee. The full mouth feel leads to a very round and long finish. Delicious now, but there will be additional flavor benefits for those who can wait.
Wine Spectator, 94 Points: “Luxurious yet structured, with roasted hazelnut, fresh ginger and cinnamon roll aromas opening to plush and vibrant baked apple, lemon tart and mineral flavors that play out on the long finish. Drink now through 2021."
Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points: “This is made entirely from estate-grown Chardonnay and given additional time in bottle: a Blanc de Blancs of great finesse and quality. Velvety texture supports an impressive palate of hazelnut, marzipan and brioche, with lasting notes of ginger and honey."
