GRAPES: 100% Chardonnay.
Le Rêve is a highly respected tête de cuvée - the winery’s finest Sparkling wine and frequently named America’s Best Sparkling. French for “the dream,” Le Rêve is crafted from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay, making it a pure expression of Domaine Carneros.
VINEYARDS: Located in the heart of the Carneros region, Domaine Carneros stands alone as the only sparkling wine producer using exclusively Carneros grapes. The Carneros Appellation is the first American Viticulture appellation to be defined according to climate rather than along political lines. Almost all of the grapes for Domaine Carneros wines come from our own estate vineyards.
TASTING NOTES: A classic Le Rêve with lovely notes of toasted brioche, honeysuckle, yuzu, citrus blossoms, and a hint of ginger. The palate opens up to honeycomb and lychee. The full mouth feel leads to a very round and long finish. Delicious now, but there will be additional flavour benefits for those who can wait.
