2016 Estate Single Vineyard Sparkling Bottle

2016 Estate Single Vineyard Sparkling

We are thrilled to showcase our Estate Vineyard for our third Single Vineyard Sparkling release. Starting with the 2014 vintage, we have selected fruit from a single vineyard each year that truly exemplifies its site, wholly and vividly. Our Estate Vineyard, first planted in 1987, comprises the rolling 100 acres surrounding our Château. Planted with 66% Chardonnay and 33% Pinot Noir grapes, this vineyard has been with us since the beginning and annually contributes several vineyard blocks to our tête de cuvée Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs.

Tasting Notes

The wine opens with a refined, delicate nose of lime zest, honeysuckle, and lemon grass, with just a touch of toast. In contrast, the palate possesses a serious density and drive; flavors of key lime, blanched almonds, white raspberry, and Asian pear linger in a long finish. Even in its youth, this wine shows beautiful complexity and integration. It will age gracefully if you have the patience to wait. Only 530 cases were produced.
