This gift features our...
2018 Estate Pinot Noir: Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir begins in our four sustainably farmed Estate Vineyards, which are all located within four miles of the Château. We grow eleven different clones of Pinot Noir and each one contributes its unique flavor profile and personality to make this compelling blend which is truly a mosaic of our Carneros terroir. This full bodied Pinot packs a full range of red and darker berry flavors and a vibrant acidity from beginning to end.
2017 Le Ciel Serein Pinot Noir: We call it “Le Ciel Serein” and it just might be the most picturesque ranch in Carneros. This site was selected for its rolling hills, diverse exposure, and exceptional soils. Developed between 2002 and 2004 it has been carefully planted to a wide variety of pinot noir clones. Year after year it has proven itself by consistently delivering lush, aromatic, and exciting pinot noir.
2018 Avant-Garde Pinot Noir: Domaine Carneros Avant-Garde Pinot Noir features a delicate note of rose petal followed by sweet cherries, pomegranate, warm oak, and baking spice. It was created to be the vanguard of the vintage, heralding the distinctive bright berry qualities of the Carneros Region. The fruit for this wine is sourced from all five Domaine Carneros vineyards in the rolling hills of Carneros.
