Domaine Carneros by Taittinger 2014 Ultra Brut - $45

This bottle represents a unique category within the sparkling wine world: Ultra Brut. It’s drier than Brut, which is historically the max on the dry end of the sweetness spectrum of Champagnes and other sparkling wines, and wines labeled Ultra Brut are increasingly becoming more popular worldwide as producers begin to experiment more actively with minimizing sugar content in their bottles. We’ll spare you the technical talk on this subject and just share some tasting notes for this bright, crisp, and super dry California bubbly: lemon zest, wildflower, and passionfruit.
