harvest note

2008 was a year for quality vs quantity. After a hard winter, the valley suffered from drought followed by extreme temperatures at the beginning of the harvest. Despite the dramatic changes during the season, winemakers were rewarded with the resulting wines offering complex and concentrated wines.

tasting note

Aromas of white flowers, pear and lemon curd tempt the palate. Full flavors of white fruit, crème brûlée, spice and toasted nuts are followed by a long, silky finish.

food pairing

Delicious with double or triple cream cheeses, fish, shellfish and poultry.

“The Taittingers and I both believe that Blanc de Blancs, made from superlative vineyards, are the greatest, and longest-lived of all sparkling wines. We age our Le Rêve (French for the dream) five to six years before release. Taste the depth of flavor and extraordinarily long finish.”
