2013 Royal Cuvée Magnum

2013 Royal Cuvée Magnum

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 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that allows for the wine to retain fruit vibrancy and develop layers of complexity from the extended aging of five years.
from $63.75 - $85

Tasting Notes

Aromas of light citrus and red apple with a touch of brioche in the background lead into an explosion of green and red apple flavors on the palate.

The wine has a creamy mouthfeel with notes of lemon curd that culminate with a lingering full finish.

Food Pairings

The eloquent mixtures of ripe apple and citrus, with a touch of lemon curd on the finish, are the perfect accompaniment for seafood. Oysters on the half shell with a ginger mignonette or classic Maine lobster roll on toasted brioche are foolproof pairings for this reputable Brut. The clean, crisp acidity pairs equally well with young, ripe triple cream cheeses or robust blue cheeses with honey.

The 2013 growing season began with an early spring that was warm and dry. This beautiful weather continued on through bloom and fruit set was excellent. With the beautiful weather the vines set a very high number of heavy grape clusters. We set new records for our vineyard crew for tons picked in a day, and for our winery for tons pressed in a day. Without any heat spikes or significant rain, all of the fruit was picked at optimal maturity, and it came to the winery in excellent condition to produce outstanding wines.
