This very focused and elegant wine displays lovely notes of lime blossom, pears, and summer herbs with a hint of light toastiness. This round wine displays a palate with an array of fruit nuances of lime zest, lemon
meringue, green apple and a touch of green tea. The long finish hints of the wines aging potential.
We started harvesting on August 15. It was another stellar harvest with even ripening and moderate weather during harvest, which allowed us to pick the fruit slowly and consistently as it ripened perfectly. The varieties showed power and finesse in this remarkable vintage.
Domaine Carneros Vintage Brut is our great classic cuvée that represents the best of Carneros Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. For this particular vintage we also added just a little Pinot Gris.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Brut Cuvée is our most versatile wine for food pairing; as fine with oysters as it is with filet mignon. Our winemaker particularly loves it with cheeses or roast chicken.
