2010 Late Disgorged Le Rêve
Late Disgorged Le Rêve is a testament to patience. Aged nearly ten years sur lies en bouteille (on the lees, in the bottle), the limited-production bottling is an opulently layered masterpiece born of the crème de la crème of our broader Sparkling wine portfolio.
Medium gold in the glass, this wine immediately announces its gravitas. The nose is rich and deep, its layers endlessly unfolding: toasted brioche, honeycomb, macadamia, with lemon meringue, lime zest and a hint of ginger. On the palate, richness and depth are on full display with sumptuous crème brûlée, key lime pie and a touch of flinty earthiness. Additional aging awards this tête de cuvée with power, focus and drive that culminates in a marvelously long, elegant finish. This is our finest expression of Estate grown Blanc de Blancs.
Ideally suited to the grandest occasions, enjoy this elegant wine on its own, with expertly prepared shell?sh, or with rich, creamy artisanal cheeses.
