The Vintage Brut Cuvee is the signature wine of Domaine Carneros. It encompasses the widest range of estate clones and vineyard blocks of the winery's collection. The tapestry of flavors that result, married with the inherent finesse of the cool Carneros fruit, create wines of depth and complexity. The 2014 vintage was enhanced by the three and years of bottle age sur lie in the cellar before release. This very focused and elegant wine displays lovely notes of lime blossom, pears, and summer herbs with a hint of light toastiness. A round wine, the palate displays an array of fruit nuances of lime zest, lemon meringue, green apple and a touch of green tea. Pairs well with seafood and meat, especially oysters and filet mignon. The winemaker's favorite is with roast chicken and a light brie.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
