Domaine Carneros
Le Reve

The famed house of Champagne Tattinger in Reims, France are the principal owners of this estate.  Eileen Crane is the CEO and founding winemaker of Domaine Carneros. She was chosen in 1987 by owner Claude Taittinger to build the winery and grow the brand. Her greatest accomplishment is creating and maintaining Le Reve, the Tête de cuvée frequently named America’s Best Sparkling Wine. Le Reve, which means “the dream” in French, is the winery’s cherished Blanc de Blanc style sparkling wine produced from 100% estate fruit in Carneros. This sparkling wine has a persistent fine mousse with fresh buttered bread aromas opening to bursts of white stone fruits and lemon meringue. Enormously complex and vibrant.
