Medium gold in the glass, the nose oﬀers lemon curd, citrus zest, honeycomb, pear pie, toasted brioche, ginger and other baking spices. The dosage is well integrated, providing intense ﬂavor with citrus and baked pear carrying through from the nose. The structure is that of a thoroughbred, graceful and built to go the distance for years to come. This is our ﬁnest expression of Estate grown Blanc de Blancs.
The blend of the 2008 Late Disgorged Le Rêve is 100% Chardonnay selected from an array of ﬁve diﬀerent estate grown clones with a particular focus on the densely ﬂavored Wente clone, which we grow on all of our ranches.
Food Pairing Notes
