Domaine Carneros Le Reve Blanc de Blancs 2008
Le Reve ("The Dream") is Domaine Carneros' masterpiece. A prestige cuvee made from almost 100% Chardonnay grapes, Le Reve is wonderful to drink now and will also age well. This is arguably America's greatest sparkling wine.
On the eye: Fine bubbles and straw-yellow in color.
On the nose: Aromas of baked apple, lemon and melon.
On the palate: Crisp flavors of apple and lemon with some mineral notes.
As with most Blanc de Blancs, Domaine Carneros Le Reve is a perfect aperitif.
