Winemaker's Notes:

This superb vintage-dated cuvée, the name of which refers to the "dream" of Claude Taittinger, is the result of nearly a decade's experimentation in refinement, blending and selection of clones from Domaine Carneros' Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc vineyards. Aged a full five years before release, Le Rêve is fragrant of honey, peaches and white flowers, with a rich, creamy texture and layers of subtle toastiness.

About Domaine Carneros:

A joint venture between Champagne Taittinger and Kobrand Corporation, partners who are perfectionists in their fields, Domaine Carneros has established itself since its inception in 1987 as one of California's finest producers of premium quality, methode traditionelle sparkling wines. The inspiration for Domaine Carneros belongs to Champagne Taittinger; the first glimmerings of the concept were shaped in the mind of Claude Taittinger in 1947. The 138 acre estate is situated in the Carneros appellation of Northern California, a 36,900 acre viticultural area which straddles the border between the Napa and Sonoma counties at their southern extremity. The estate's vineyards extend up a slope rising to a crest overlooking San Francisco and San Pablo Bay, with an elevation of 120 to 260 feet above sea level.
