Le Reve

Domaine Carneros (Taittinger)

Le Rêve Brut Sparkling Wine 2013

Always 100% Chardonnay, the 2013 ‘Le Reve’ is a tour de force from this storied Carneros house. The mousse here is highly refined. Salted biscuit aromatic tones grab your attention with Meyer lemon zest and shades of wild mushroom and toasted hazelnuts all take shape in the glass. The silly mousse is downright incredible. Bright kumquat zest and sourdough bread tones mingle with macadamia nut and suggestions of white truffles on this complex palate. This is salty and savory California sparkling wine at its best. Beautifully textured, with great length, this stunning new bottling will enjoy a very long life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2035- 95

Domaine du Grand Montmirail

Gigondas

An amazing wine that I regret not purchasing more magnum bottles when I had the chance to drink now and age. Had the 2017 vintage of Le Coteau De Mon Reve. Intense nose of framboise, raspberry, blackberry, olive, anise, ground pepper, violets, forest floor and dark chocolate that ran true on the palate. Full bodied and rich, very smooth long finish. — 6 months ago

A bit pricey for Cali bubbles but this stuff is legit! If you're going to shell out for something like La Reve or J Schram give this some serious consideration. — 4 years ago
