Domaine Carneros Vintage Brut is our great classic cuvée that represents the best of Carneros Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. While our Carneros vineyards always produce superb fruit, in 2010 the Chardonnay was the star. Hence this cuvée features a higher proportion than usual of this varietal (58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir).

The 2010 harvest was of normal size although the season was late and cool with a delayed bud break. In late August a brief, but intense heat spike, pushed the fruit to ripeness. The grape clusters had unusually small intense berries.

This powerful, yet elegant wine, shows off an array of citrus flavors, tropical fruit (including pineapple and passion fruit), and a hint of toastiness. Our 2010 Brut cuvée has been aged a full three years in our cellar to enhance complexity and development. With proper cellaring, this wine will develop further for decades.
