Sparkles!!!


My man sure can pour himself a glass of Champagne and look handsome doing it! Actually, this isn't Champagne, but a super good bottle of 1999 Domaine Carneros, La Reve. 

I had never had this wine before, so I looked up a little info on it. 

It's 100% Chardonnay as Blanc de blancs tend to be :)

It got 91 points from Wine Spectator for those of you who care and I quite agree with their assessment. "Bright and tangy, with a toasty, lemony quality that leaves the palate refreshed. The finish is long, with a distinct mineral edge. Elegant, graceful and harmonious."

Much different from Champagne though, much more fruity and lower acidity, at least according to my palate...

As I tend to drink more than one glass of sparkler...I prefer Les Reves!

Best followed by Silvio Jermann's Dreams I suppose.
