This wine has an incredibly complex nose, with aromas of red apple, fresh baked bread, orange zest, yellow peach and strawberry, along with hints of vanilla and toasted hazelnuts. The bright acidity is completed by good structure and a long finish with lingering toasty notes.
Devaux Ranch is our estate vineyard in Carneros. It sits on 110 acres of rolling hills and is named for our founding winemaker, Guy Devaux. The vineyard is planted to all four varieties used in Mumm Napa sparkling wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Gris. Each year we create a single vineyard blend that expresses the best of that particular vintage. Although the blend is always changing, we aim to let the unique character of the vineyard shine.
This would be an excellent wine to serve with Thanksgiving dinner. It would also be a great complement to a nice cheese board.
