2014 Royal Cuvée

2014 Royal Cuvée

A showcase for our estate vineyard, Gloria Ferrer has been perfecting the Royal Cuvée since we served the first vintage to the King and Queen of Spain in 1987. Royal Cuvée is a perfect balance of Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that allows for this unique sparkling wine to retain fruit vibrancy and develop layers of complexity from the extended aging of five years.

Tasting Notes

Earthy aromas and toasty brioche greet the nose. Aromas of baking spice and flavors reminiscent of warm apple pie meld together to please all aspects of the palate.

Red apple and D’Anjou pear flavors give way to citrus notes of mandarin orange and Meyer lemon. Fruit flavors linger in the finish.

Food Pairings

The nuttiness of a farro salad with crisp apples, pomegranate seeds, and squash brings all the flavors of the Royal Cuvée together in harmony. Try spice roasted grapes and a creamy Saint Andre on your cheese platter. Caramelized scallops will play with the richness expression of the wine.
