Winemaker Notes

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.

Wine Enthusiast
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.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
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.

Domaine Carneros, California
Domaine Carneros Winery Video
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.

California

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
