Ultra Brut is a lower dosage, so drier/tart. Lemon, passion fruit.

The 2010 Ultra Brut is Domaine Carneros' driest sparkling wine, 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. The mousse is fine and persistent. It has aromas and flavors of yeast and citrus. It's crisp and bright with ample acidity. This would pair with a variety of foods.

The dryness of the extra brut really shows the fruit character. That fruit shines through wrapped in a saline and mineral package with great acidity. Cuts through food like a knife. I want more of these.
