Our 2009 vintage had near perfect growing conditions, one we have referred to in the past as the "vintage of the decade." Excellent flavor concentration was apparent early in the winemaking process.
A classic Le Rêve with lovely notes of white flowers, honeysuckle, light citrus overlaid with a light toasty note. The palate opens up to poached pear, hints of ginger and toasted almonds. The creamy mouth feels leads to a long, long finish with a touch of caramel on the end.
As with many great wines, 2009 Le Rêve has been crafted to be long-lived and will continue to evolve for decades in the cellar. An inspired selection for the most memorable occasions, savor the wine on its own, pair it with fresh crab, lobster, scallops, fish or poultry, or with artisanal goat or double- or triple-cream cheeses.
