Domaine Carneros Brut 2016

12% abv

This very focused and elegant wine displays lovely notes of key lime, honeycomb and lemon curd. It is round and displays hints of lime blossom, baked pear and lemon meringue, resulting in a creamy texture and a long finish. There is a theme of brightness and concentration running through the ’16s. The winemaking team strived to capture the energy and spirit of the vintage as they went about blending.
51% Chardonnay 47% Pinot Noir 2% Pinot Gris. Aged for three and a half years in the cellar to enhance complexity and development. With proper cellaring this wine will develop further for decades – but only if you can wait to open it! The fruit for this wine is sourced from all five Domaine Carneros’ organic-certified vineyards in the rolling hills of Carneros.

Carneros is a cool climate appellation at the southern extremes of Sonoma Count. This world premier winegrowing region is influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean and a combination of summer fog, warm days, and a long growing season Obtaining its AVA status in 1983, Carneros was the first wine region in California to be classified by its climate characteristics rather than political boundaries – the Pacific Ocean, the Coast Mountain Ranges and the San Francisco Bay.

Domaine Carneros was established in 1987, a joint venture between Champagne Taittinger and Kobrand Corporation – one of the foremost players in the U.S wine industry. This impressive venture was a fulfilment of Claude Taittinger’s dream after he visited the Carneros region and realised its potential to produce world class sparkling and still Pinot Noir wines.

All the wines from Domaine Carneros are made from 100% Carneros fruit. When founding Domaine Carneros, the intent was to focus specifically on sparkling wines. However, the Pinot Noir fruit produced on the Domaine Carneros estate vineyards was of such high quality that a still wine was produced. 1992 saw the inaugural vintage of the highly acclaimed Famous Gate Pinot Noir.
