Wine Review: This pale yellow colored sparkler has lots off streaming bubbles. It opens with a cookie dough and vanilla bouquet with a hint of lemon. On the palate, this sparkler is acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of white pepper and lemon. The finish is dry, austere, and slightly extended. Pair with melon wrapped in prosciutto or ham dishes. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: If you asked winemaker Ludovic Dervin to name the quintessential Napa Valley Sparkling wine, his answer would inevitably be Brut Prestige. Our signature cuvee, this versatile wine is sourced from more than 50 prime Napa Valley vineyards to create an infinitely elegant, gorgeously balanced wine. Delicate golden peach color, tantalizing hints of melon, spice and toasty vanilla, with a crisp lingering finish. This sparkling wine has won more medals at major wine competitions than any other wine in its class.
