Domaine Carneros Taittinger Brut 2010
Domaine Carneros Taittinger Brut 2010


Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 Brut Cuvée is the signature wine of Domaine Carneros, representing the best of Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a classic sparkling wine. The term "Brut" refers to the dryness or sugar level of the wine; less than 15 grams of residual sugar per liter. To earn its distinction as a vintage-dated sparkling wine, this wine is aged three years "sur lies en bouteille" (on the lees, in the bottle) before release, adding richness, depth and complexity. This wine is disgorged with a low dosage, just under 0.9%, balancing it just perfectly and making it delicious to enjoy on its own.

This powerful yet elegant wine shows off an array of citrus flavors, tropical fruit (including pineapple and passion fruit), and a hint of toastiness. It is racy on the palate and long on finish.

Critical Acclaim

  • WS90
    Wine Spectator - "Sleek and precise, with lemon, blanched almond and mineral aromas and a beam of raspberry, citrus and flint flavors that slowly builds richness."
