Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling cuvée represents the best of Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a classic sparkling wine. The term “Brut” refers to the dryness, or sugar level, of the wine: less than 15 grams of residual sugar per liter. To earn its distinction as a vintage dated sparkling wine, it is aged three years sur lies en bouteille (on the lees, in the bottle) before release, adding richness, depth and complexity. 

The 2010 harvest was marked by a cool late spring, which delayed bud break. The berry size was unusually small, however, slightly more clusters than typical, produced a near normal crop. The resulting wine is intense and elegant.

This graceful wine features a remarkably well-integrated dosage and notes of toasty brioche often found in a fine aged cuvée. Comprised of Pinot Noir (49%) and Chardonnay (51%), approximately 9% of the cuvée underwent malolactic fermentation prior to blending.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of baked apple, golden apple, lime zest, honeycomb and vanilla marry with brioche on a very round palate. The hallmark of Domaine Carneros wines, a luxuriously long finish rewards each sip.
Food Pairing Notes
Savor this vintage Brut on its own, or enjoy its pairing versatility with oysters, fish and shellfish, poultry, most Asian cuisine and even rich cheeses.
