Domaine Carneros Brut 2017
This very focused and elegant wine displays lovely notes of key lime, honeycomb and lemon curd. It is round and displays hints of lime blossom, baked pear and lemon meringue, resulting in a creamy texture and a long finish.
This cuvée is the embodiment of Claude Taittinger's dream in 1987 - to make world-class sparkling wines in Carneros.
We thought 2017 would be a vintage we remembered for the huge volume of rain we received. However, just after completing our own harvest, some of the worst fires in California history broke out in Napa and Sonoma counties. While we were fortunate to have finished our harvest, everyone's lives were affected and our hearts go out to our neighbours and friends who were not as fortunate.
Aged for three and a half years in the cellar to enhance complexity and development. With proper cellaring this wine will develop further for decades - but only if you can wait to open it!
