On the nose, our classic Le Rêve captivates with lovely notes of ginger, crème brûlée, toasted coconut, and citrus zest. The palate opens up with pear, yuzu, brioche, and notes of a fresh baked lemon pie. This wine displays depth and purity that leads to a long, elegant finish. As with many great wines, our 2015 Le Rêve has been crafted to be long-lived and will continue to evolve for decades in the cellar. Delicious now, but there will be additional flavor benefits for those who can wait.
2015 started with an early bud break, and continued to an early harvest, the second earliest in the history of Domaine Carneros, on July 31st. The light yields of this vintage resulted in a concentration of flavors and complexity in the fruit.
Food Pairing Notes
Savor this vintage of Le Rêve on its own for the most memorable occasions. Our winemaker suggests pairing it with a creamy four cheese pasta and seafood, linguine with clams, or triple-cream cheeses.
