Domaine Carneros Brut 2013
The Domaine Carneros estate is based in the region of Los Carneros, straddling the Southern parts of Napa and Sonoma counties. This region is known for its cooler climate and Pacific breeze, which is ideal for the creation of sparkling wines. Owned by the great Champagne house of Taittinger, Domaine Carneros is one of the most respected sparkling wine producers in California. This Brut cuvee is a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend which is aged for 3 years before release.
On the nose there are aromas of raspberry, cherry and lemon. On the first sip we get more lemon, combined with apple, pear and mineral notes.
