        Winemaker Notes

        These sweet grapes leave a memory in your mouth. This dessert wine is musky and intense. It opens with raisin in the nose and an abundance of candied fruit, while peach, apricot and kumquat drench your palate; the finish is persistent, with perfect acidity.

        Renaissance Vineyard and Winery, , California
        Renaissance
        Renaissance Winery is a nearly 400-acre vineyard founded by a group called the Fellowship of Friends who purchased the land in 1971. Uniting all the Renaissance wines from the early years under the founding winemaker to the present is the unique terroir, the taste of the spare, red soil and the over 85 microclimates that emerge in the vintages. Winemaking possibilities are endless. Each new wine is, in itself, a sleeping beauty waiting to awaken in your glass.

        Champagne

        View all wine

        Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

        With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
