Gloria Ferrer Carneros Cuvee sparkling wine

2001 Carneros Cuvée

The Carneros Cuvée is our Tête de Cuvée. It represents the best fruit from our 335 acres of estate vineyards as well as our winemaking expertise in the art of blending. This special Cuvée is only produced in a select vintage year. Our 2001 vintage is a blend of (53%) Pinot Noir and (47%) Chardonnay, offering a synthesis of effusive ripe fruit expression with superb structure and finesse. With over 10 years en tirage and a minimum of 6 months on the cork, this decade-old wine is remarkably fresh, rich and complex and represents the ultimate statement of our house style.


A rich and complex nose offers ripe apples and asian pears that lead to bright berry fruit aromas interlaced with a hint of yeast and toasted brioche. On the palate, this wine is creamy and vibrant with complex layers of baked apple and citrus with perfectly balanced acidity intermingling in a very elegant, vibrant and enduring finish.
