Winemaker Notes

The near-ideal 2000 growing season began with moderate temperatures and rainfall conditions. Bud break proceeded uneventfully through fruit set; the clusters were subsequently ripened by several well-timed heat waves. October's cool temperatures delayed harvest substantially, allowing for fully developed aromatic and flavor characteristics in the grapes.

A superb wine for a range of small appetizer plates from marinated olives and pizzetta to seared scallops. Enjoy with seafood such as oysters on the half-shell, steamed mussels or salt cod brandade or bacalao. Seasoning affinities include toasted nuts, tarragon, fennel bulb and citrus peel.

Blend: 65% Pinot Noirs and 35% Chardonnay

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Royal Cuvée has turned into one of the most consistent buys in an upscale California bubbly, mainly due to the elegance that always marks the wine. The 2000, which is a classic blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, shows the smoothness and complexity that mark fine sparkling wine, with subtle citrus, peach, raspberry, brioche and smoky vanilla flavors.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Glimmers of lemon zest and chalk join bright scents of citrus and a rich stratum of autolyzed yeast in the invitingly fresh yet sophisticated aromas displayed by the younger of the two very special cuvee bottlings from Gloria Ferrer. Its small bubbles and vital, frothy mousse carry the wine nicely across the palate and accentuate its rich, creamy character. Its finish is long and appropriately tasty in the austere manner of very fine bubbly.

Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards, Carneros, California
Image of winery
Gloria Ferrer is the offspring of a powerful parent: Freixenet of Spain, the world's largest producer of sparkling wine. Drawn to the promise of California, Freixenet established a California winery, naming it after the wife of Freixenet's president. The winery in Carneros is one of the best stops in all of Wine Country. Visit the aging caves carved in the hillside and enjoy the sun-splashed deck while noshing on roasted almonds and sipping bubbly. Wines produced are Blanc de Noir, Brut, Brut Rose, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose.

Carneros

View all wine

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. Its close proximity to the San Francisco Peninsula and the San Pablo Bay is instrumental in controlling the climate of the area. The winds from the San Pablo Bay create a cooling effect ideal for producing wines with crisp acidity and balanced flavors.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and more recently, Old-World style Syrah. While more delicate than most wines from neighboring regions, these are firmly structured, complex, and full of flavor. Carneros is also an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne.

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
