Wine & Spirits Review Rated 94 The Ferrer family created Royal Cuvee to serve King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain when they visited California in 1987. Blended from many of the best lots at the family's Carneros estate, it's quite impressive thanks, in part, to a long season that delivered ideal ripeness. Two-thirds pinot noir and one-third chardonnay, it feels ripe in the best sense, bold in its fruit, with an impression of a juicy Bartlett pear, its fragrant nectar dripping down your chin. Yet it's fully dry and completely harmonious, the mousse fine, the delicate acidity giving it a bright, weightless length. It's not trying to emulate Champagne; rather, it's compelling in another way: delicious and true to place, it captures Californian sunshine in a bottle.
Wine Tasting Notes The wine opens with green apple, citrus and honey on the nose. This continues into the mouth adding black cherry and brioche with Asian pear. The mouse is fine textured and creamy. Light mineral character and Meyer lemon continue into a long crisp finish.
