Domaine Carneros's finest Blanc de Blancs blend, it is made entirely from estate-grown fruit. This 2007 is distinguished by complex layers of pear compote and ginger spice—round, soft and still well-toned in acidity. As it ages expect more of the almond-hazelnut undertones to take center stage, a delightful accompaniment to fruit desserts, creamy French cheeses or salty shellfish.
