The 93 POINT, WINE SPECTATOR RATED, 2012 “LE REVE” (by Domaine Carneros), SOLD OUT IN TWO HOURS when sold for a holiday wine special back in December. If you end up scrolling all the way down, you’ll see our original email stating that we had the last 14 six-packs and that was true. Yesterday, while making an order from the same specialty broker we asked, “any chance you got any more Le Reve?”
After a brief pause, they said, “looks like we had 17 more six-packs come in this week.” Now there was no way of telling if more was on the way, but we didn’t want to miss this price and offer it once again to our savvy/esteemed bubbles fans, so…we brought in EIGHT more 6 PKS which arrived today!
If you love your bubbles, than this one you need to SPLURGE on and score one of the BEST DEALS of LAST YEAR and maybe one of the BEST DEAL of THIS YEAR…already!
Wine is in stock and ready to pick-up and/or ship today!

EMAIL FROM DECEMBER –
Last email (today), but this is a SPECTACULAR SPARKLING WINE DEAL(S) that we just couldn’t wait any longer to share! On Thursday, we were making an order with of our esteemed wine brokers and we asked “anything else we should know about?”
There was a slight pause on the line which was then followed up by “This is weird. Le Reve just popped up on special and there are only 11 six-packs available!”
Without hesitation we quickly replied…”SOLD. LOCK IT UP. PUSH THE ORDER NOW SO WE DON’T LOSE IT!”
This was awesome score, such good news, because this SPARKLING WINE is one of the BEST IN CALIFORNIA which is made at Domaine Carneros, a Taittenger winery! Problem was there were only 260 CASES PRODUCED and it received 93 POINTSfrom WINE SPECTATOR and just because it is ordered…doesn’t mean you’ll receive it!
Friday morning when the big red delivery truck arrived, we were like RALPHIE from The Christmas Story, waiting for that back door to open and see if we got all 11 six-packs, or as in Ralphie’s case, that “Red Rider BB GUN!” Guess what? We did!
WHAT IS LE REVE?
“Le Rêve is a highly respected tête de cuvée – our winery’s finest Sparkling wine and frequently named America’s Best Sparkling. French for “the dream,” Le Rêve is crafted from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay, making it a pure expression of Domaine Carneros.”
HOW DOES IT TASTE:
A classic Le Rêve with lovely notes of white flowers, Meyer lemon, poached pear and a hint of grilled pineapple. e palate opens up to honeysuckle and crème brûlée. e full mouth feel leads to a very round and long finish. Delicious now, but there will be additional flavor benefits for those who can wait. 11.8% ALC
