2012 Jardin d'Hiver Cuvee
In 2018, our Château was graced with a dramatic garden conservatory called the Jardin d’Hiver-a grand glass room that immerses our guests in the spectacular Carneros landscape while sheltering from the elements. In celebration we present this limited edition cuvée, a dry and richly layered Late Disgorged Ultra Brut, a style never before produced at Domaine Carneros. We produced a mere 200 cases, all of which are available only at the winery.
"The Jardin d’Hiver cuvee has a low dosage with makes it very crisp while its age gives it a wonderful richness, a juxtaposition that makes it an excellent match with rich winter dishes. The wine’s cleansing crispness plays well with heavier sauces and flavors while its toasty, creamy, caramel notes bridge beautifully with roasted, caramelized flavors in a dish." -Eileen Crane, Founding Winemaker
