When we selected our small parcel in the heart of Carneros 33 years ago, we knew it was destined to produce great wines. Our 2017 Ultra Brut, 2018 Estate Brut Cuvée, and 2019 Brut Rosé embody the depth and breadth of our six estate vineyards translated through masterful winemaking. Fill your flute with our Château favorites!
2017 Ultra Brut: Ultra Brut is a rare style of sparkling wine that is rarely produced. Very dry and brisk, it is a contemplative wine that appeals to the true aficionado. Hailing from the stellar 2017 vintage, this latest expression includes intriguing aromas of fresh cut flowers, key lime, ginger, and honeydew melon.
2018 Estate Brut: Our Estate Brut is a small cuvée comprised only of grapes grown in our own vineyards. The newest release features notes of poached pear, crisp apple, yuzu, honeydew melon, and lemon sorbet with a toasty finish that lingers on the palate, begging for another sip. This winery exclusive has been aged to perfection yet will enjoy additional evolution in the cellar over the next decade.
2019 Brut Rosé: A favorite among our enthusiasts, this wine expresses great balance while emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics. On the nose, the 2019 vintage welcomes the senses with aromas of potpourri, watermelon, honeysuckle, grilled peaches, and oranges. Flavors of tangerine, wild strawberry, peaches, marzipan, and mandarin evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day through the long, silky finish.
