2013 Jardin d'Hiver Cuvee

In 2018, our Château was graced with a dramatic garden conservatory called the Jardin d’Hiver—a grand glass room that immerses our
guests in the spectacular Carneros landscape while sheltering from the elements. In celebration we present this limited edition cuvée, a dry
and richly layered Late Disgorged Ultra Brut, a style never before produced at Domaine Carneros.

A defining feature of this remarkable vintage is in the even growing of the grapes. We began to harvest on August 15 and enjoyed moderate harvest conditions, which allowed us to pick the fruit slowly and consistently as it achieved the perfect ripeness. It was a larger than normal yielding harvest of very fine quality.

  • Tasting Notes

    This cuvée’s unique blend and extra aging brings a layered creaminess and complexity to the senses while its low dosage makes it very crisp. On the nose this wine opens with stunning minerality, which is complimented by aromas of lychee, macadamia nut, and crème brûlée. The palate highlights flavors of lemon curd and key lime pie. A long lingering finish invites you to enjoy another glass.
