Winemaker Notes

Gloria Ferrer has been perfecting the Royal Cuvee since they served the first vintage to the King and Queen of Spain in 1987. Royal Cuvee is a perfect balance of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that allows for the wine to retain its fruit vibrancy and develop layers of complexity from the extended aging of over 7 years.

The nose opens with bright, crisp green apple, with a touch of honey. The mouth adds stone fruit, citrus and black cherry. The acid is bright and the mouthfeel is crisp leading into a long finish with a touch of Meyer lemon zest.

The vivid acidity showcases the crisp green apple and honey notes of this special cuvée graciously. Cherry and stone fruit flavors create a lively match for spicy curries or Thai influenced dishes. The citrus components are an impeccable match for buttery Belgian waffles with orange marmalade mascarpone to berry scones served with lemon curd.

Blend: 67% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay

Wine Spectator
Deftly combines a steely crispness with rich luxuriousness, offering notes of fresh ginger, cinnamon brioche, Meyer lemon and Asian pear that unfold on the long finish. Drink now through 2018.

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. 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.

Image for Vintage content section

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.
