The Vintage Brut Cuvée is the signature wine of Domaine Carneros. It encompasses the widest range of estate clones and vineyard blocks of the winery’s collection. The tapestry of flavors that result, married with the inherent finesse of the cool Carneros fruit, create wines of depth and complexity. The 2014 vintage was enhanced by the three and years of bottle age sur lie in the cellar before release.
This very focused and elegant wine displays lovely notes of lime blossom, pears, and summer herbs with a hint of light toastiness. A round wine, the palate displays an array of fruit nuances of lime zest, lemon meringue, green apple and a touch of green tea.
Pairs well with seafood and meat, especially oysters and filet mignon. The winemaker's favorite is with roast chicken and a light brie
Blend: 62% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, 3% Pinot Gris
From Wine Spectator: Dynamic yet elegantly refined, with expressive Asian pear, raspberry and toasted spice flavors that build vibrancy toward a long, steely finish. Drink now through 2019
