2015 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. We love this sparkling wine now, but know it has exceptional further aging potential.

Tasting Notes

A select blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, this voluminous, beautifully integrated California Brut displays all the intricacy and harmony of our Carneros estate fruit. The nose offers enticing notes of honeysuckle, marzipan, almond paste, and orange blossom. Round and full in the mouth, flavors of poached pear, key lime, coconut, and ginger ride on balancing acidity through a lingering finish.

Food Pairings

Due to the extended aging prior to disgorgement, we recommend pairing this wine with rich double and triple cream cheeses, or shellfish. Perfect with just a few toasted nuts, or even on its own.
