Happy Birthday to my fabulous sister filled with sparkles and light, Daphne! Everything about Daph is glitter and joy, making today the perfect day to pop some bubbles. Bubbles have been on my mind of late, as they are the way to toast the season, with one of mine and my sister’s favorites rising to the top, Domaine Carneros Le Reve Blanc de Blancs ($120).
Crafted from sustainably grown, 100% Chardonnay fruit from their lush estate in cool Carneros with rolling hillsides, sunshine-filled days, and cool, foggy nights, creating the perfect fruit for vibrant sparkling wines. With hundreds of tiny bubbles inviting you to sip and savor, opening with aromas of brioche, hazelnut, lemon blossom, and honeysuckle, leading to a well-rounded palate with incredible complexity and structure, highlighting notes of orchard and stone fruit, lemon curd, and creme brulee. Textured and rich while maintaining racy acidity and freshness, pairing with seafood and shellfish, including Daphne’s other favorite, really good caviar.
Happy Birthday, Daph! You are loved!!! #Cheers!
