2012 Le Reve Blanc de Blancs Bottle

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.

Tasting Notes

A perfect Le Rêve with lovely notes of white flowers, Meyer lemon, poached pear and a hint of grilled pineapple. The palate opens up to honeysuckle and Crème brûlée. The full mouth feel leads to a very round and long finish. Delicious now, but there will be additional flavor benefits for those who can wait.
