As with many great wines, 2006 Le Rêve has been crafted to be a long-lived classic. Generous aromas of buttery, yeasty brioche, white flowers, stone fruit, honeysuckle, pear, quince, fig and lime make for a seductive overture. The wine's rich, round palate with its notes of white fruit, crème brûlée and toasted almond lingers through an extraordinarily long, silky finish.
Delicious with crab, lobster and scallops, poultry dishes, goat cheese and double or triple cream cheeses. This
wine is destined to be a long-lived classic, capable of aging gracefully for 15 years or more.
"Made entirely from Chardonnay, it shows real delicacy and richness, with a mousse as smooth as fine satin. Flavorwise, it's enormously rich, suggesting oranges, limes, honey, vanilla, toast and the sweet, yeasty doughiness of a brioche pastry. Really gorgeous, a worthy followup to the fabulous 2005 La Rêve."
"Sleek and refined, with floral Asian pear and white chocolate aromas, offering crisp yet supple flavors of baked apple, brioche and cinnamon, finishing on a creamy, vibrant note."
