2013 Late Disgorged Brut

Before a sparkling wine earns the right to feature its vintage on the label, it must be aged in the bottle for three years. Our Late Disgorged Brut goes well beyond that strict requirement with a total of six years aging sur lie en bouteille - on the lees, in the bottle. The result is an enhanced, enriched edition of our acclaimed Domaine Carneros Brut Cuvée.

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

    Brioche, lychee, honeysuckle, and vanilla bean on the nose surge seamlessly to caramelized pineapple, crème anglaise, and golden apple on the palate. Supple and complex, this wine possesses an elegant balance of fullness and freshness that sails in a delightfully long finish.

  • Food Pairing

    We recommend pairing it with rich double and triple cream or goat cheeses. Perfect with just a few toasted nuts, it will also enhance simple to complex meals. Oysters, poultry and even meat dishes work well and we suggest trying it with Asian cuisine.
