2016 Le Rêve Rosé

Available for a brief time each holiday season, this gorgeous Rosé is an elegant show stopper. More than any of our other sparklings, it reflects the vintage as expressed in a few distinguished blocks of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As with our Le Rêve Cuvée family, this méthode traditionnelle rosé enjoys six years of aging before release.

Tasting Notes

The alluring nose brims with a bouquet of roses, cherry reduction sauce, orangesicle, and ginger. The palate unfolds seamlessly - fresh strawberry, apricot, peaches, molasses, and a hint of ginger snap - sailing on bright acidity, finishing long and round with hallmark Carneros minerality. This wine shows its pedigree from our Le Rêve Cuvée, with elegant structure revealing itself behind the fruity entry.
