External Reviews for Domaine Carneros Champagne Blend Carneros Brut
A rich, complex, concentrated wine, with pretty black cherry, spice and creamy, toasty scents that fold together nicely. On the finish the flavors linger, giving it an added measure. Drink now through 2008.
Appealing aromas of Gala apple, toasted almond and vanilla lead to focused, creamy Asian pear and spice flavors that finish with a vibrant crispness. Drink now through 2012.
Beautifully focused and refined, with Gala apple and raspberry aromas and flavors that are crisp yet layered, with creamy lemon and lime notes and a finish that lingers with mineral and a hint of yeast. Drink now through 2012.
Earthy, yeasty, doughy aromas turn rich, with complex layers of earth, pear, apple, honey and yeasty notes, finishing with a long, smooth, creamy aftertaste. Drink now through 2007.
Yeasty and breadlike, with a fine bead. Creamy and elegant, with citrus and pear flavors. Lots of finesse and complexity here; comes close to impersonating Champagne.
Smooth, rich and creamy, with layers of fig, vanilla, pear and hazelnut, gaining depth and complexity. Finishes with a touch of anise. Drink now through 2005.
A touch coarse and earthy, but enough rich pear, honey and toasty notes pour through to keep it interesting. Ready now.
