2012 Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs

Le Rêve is a highly respected tête de cuvée - our winery’s finest Sparkling wine and frequently named America’s Best Sparkling. French for “the dream,” Le Rêve is crafted from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay, making it a pure expression of Domaine Carneros.

The summer months, which are the heart of the growing season, were dominated by a persistent marine system that provided morning fog until mid-day. The combination of cool temperatures and ample crop load produced plenty of “hang-time” and allowed maximum ?avor development. We brought in the last of the Chardonnay on September 22. This remarkable vintage showed power and ?nesse.
