Domaine Carneros Brut Cuvée

#DOMNVBR3 | 750mL

There aren't many vintners in the Napa Valley or in California for that matter making sparkling wine. But of the few that exist, Domaine Carneros is one of the most consistent players, especially for their reasonably priced Brut Cuvée and Brut Rosé. The '07 is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay and reveals smooth fruit and fine bubbles—great for every day drinking. - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director

Domaine Carneros Brut Cuvée represents the best of Carneros pinot noir and chardonnay made into a classic sparkling wine. The appellation is 100% Carneros. The Brut was aged in the bottle for three years before release. It will continue to develop further depth and complexity as it ages. The vast majority of sparkling wine and champagne in the world is made in the Brut style. Brut refers to the dryness or level of sugar of the wine. The sugar content of a Brut-style sparkling wine is 0-15 grams per liter. Although Brut refers to the dryness of the wine, Brut-style sparkling wine and champagne is also traditionally a blend of chardonnay and pinot noir.
