Le Rêve

Le Rêve, or The Dream from French, seemed appropriate for this magical, dreamy afternoon. Clearly from the ring-on-finger, this was a post engagement shot where everyone could take a deep breath and relax a bit before getting excited all over again as to what exactly happened just a few moments ago. We brought this exquisite Cali Sparkling Wine which we had been saving for a truly special occasion – what could be more special?

Le Rêve,  is a luxury Blanc de Blancs cuvee originally inspired by Taittinger’s Comtes de Champagne.  Blanc de Blancs means “white of whites” or white wine made from white grapes.

Eileen Crane and Claude Taittinger believe that the finest sparkling wine in the world is Blanc de Blancs made from Chardonnay grapes.  These wines have greater finesse and ageability and Le Rêve is no exception.   The Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs is generally 100% Chardonnay (with a  small percent of Pinot Blanc in some years).  Aged a full 6 years prior to release, Le Rêve drinks beautifully upon release and continues to develop for years in the cellar.

Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs has repeatedly been rated “The Best Sparkling Wine in America.”
