Gloria Ferrer Champagne Blend Carneros Royal Cuvée Brut 2002
• Grapes were whole-cluster pressed to minimize extraction of bitter compounds. • The Cuvée was made exclusively with free-run juice. • Base wines were fermented in stainless steel tanks at 60°F to preserve delicacy. • Sixteen base wines were carefully blended to create the final Cuvée. The wine was aged for more than five years on the yeast.
Food Pairings for Gloria Ferrer Champagne Blend Carneros Royal Cuvée Brut
A wonderful medley of effusive fruit tones including ripe apple, bright cherry, strawberry and citrus mingle with hints of cream, biscuit and toast in the very complex nose of this well-developed yet vibrantly fresh sparkling wine. The lush, generous textures continue the creaminess, laced with rich lemon and apple flavors and lovely suggestions of yeast, caramel and marzipan throughout the deftly balanced and persistent finish. A complex interplay of subtly nuanced berry and cherry aromas marries with mature yeast characters and a trace of graphite in the nose of this well-developed yet remarkably fresh sparkling wine. The wine holds in exquisite balance full, round, abundant flavors of citrus, ripe apple, spice and toast with vibrant acidity that refreshes the palate throughout an extremely long finish.
