Gloria Ferrer Royal Cuvée

A showcase for our estate vineyard, Gloria Ferrer has been perfecting the Royal Cuvée since we served the first vintage to the King and Queen of Spain in 1987. Royal Cuvée is a perfect balance of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that allows for the wine to retain its fruit vibrancy and develop layers of complexity from the extended aging of over four and a half years.

palate
Green and red apple flavors on the palate. The wine has a creamy mouthfeel with notes of lemon curd that culminate with a lingering full finish.
serving suggestions
The perfect accompaniment for seafood. Oysters on the half shell with a ginger mignonette or classic Maine lobster roll on toasted brioche are foolproof pairings for this reputable brut.
