"Vibrant and refined, with elegantly rich Asian pear, brioche and strawberry blossom accents that take on polish and richness on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2022. 30,660 cases made. -TF" (WS)

"After three years in bottle, this sparkling combines 50% Chardonnay with 40% Pinot Noir and a touch of Pinot Gris. Earthy mushroom and muddled lime, lemon and apple flavors highlight a smooth, structured palate of ample length and rounded weight. -Virginie Boone" (WE)

Winery Notes:
The Vintage Brut Cuvée 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 that are enhanced by a minimum of three years of bottle age sur lie in the cellar before release.
