Medium gold in the glass, this wine immediately announces its gravitas. The nose is rich and deep, its layers endlessly unfolding: toasted brioche, honeycomb, macadamia, with lemon meringue, lime zest and a hint of
ginger. On the palate, richness and depth are on full display with sumptuous crème brûlée, key lime pie and a touch of flinty earthiness. Additional aging awards this tête de cuvée with power, focus and drive that culminates in a marvelously long, elegant finish. This is our finest expression of Estate grown Blanc de Blancs.
The blend of the 2010 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
Ideally suited to the grandest occasions, enjoy this elegant wine on its own, with expertly prepared shellfish, or with rich, creamy artisanal cheeses.
