2014 Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs

Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs 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

On the nose, the classic Le Rêve captivates with lovely notes of honeysuckle, lime blossoms, grilled pineapple, brioche, and a hint of ginger. The palate opens up to honeycomb, yuzu, and notes of a fresh baked lemon pie. This wine displays depth and purity that leads to a long, elegant finish. As with many great wines, 2014 Le Rêve has been crafted to be long-lived and will continue to evolve for decades in the cellar. Delicious now, but there will be additional benefits for those who can wait.
