Gloria Ferrer Royal Cuvee

2005 Royal Cuvée

Our Royal Cuvee is a prestige bottling that showcases the superb quality of the grapes grown on our 335-acre estate vineyard in Carneros. The structure and mouthfeel of this wine have evolved over successive vintages as these impressive vineyard blocks have matured. Made only from the first pressing of hand-picked grapes, this classic Brut blend of two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay offers the delicacy and exuberance of perfectly ripe fruit well-integrated with complexities derived from over five years of aging on the yeast. The inaugural vintage of "Royal Cuvee" was first served to King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain, during their visit to California in 1987.

TASTING NOTES

Ripe stone fruit medley and citrus intermingle with toast, butter and yeasty aromas on the nose of this well-developed yet vibrantly fresh sparkling wine. Creamy textures with hints of butterscotch and almonds support delicious flavors of pears, apples and lemons. The elegantly structured and long creamy finish is simply irresistible.
