Fresh white and yellow stone fruit aromas complemented by notes of wild
strawberry, fresh baked bread, vanilla and honey.


Layers of ripe peach with
subtle hints of mandarin orange combine with crisp citrus tones, leading to a
long, creamy finish.


Each harvest, the Cuvée M blend is comprised of the best grapes selected from
up to 50 separate vineyards throughout the Napa appellation. The grapes are
hand-harvested during the crisp morning hours to ensure they arrive at the
winery in pristine condition.


The individual vineyard lots are fermented separately at cool temperatures in
small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. An average
of 18 months’ yeast aging adds complexity, contributing subtle bread dough
flavors and layers of creaminess. The wine is then disgorged as a Sec style
(3.00% RS) and a dosage added back to balance the wine’s acidity. The dosage
includes a proprietary blend of late-harvest wines. It rests another three
months to fully marry the dosage liquor with the base wine.


Cuvée M displays a graceful stream of fine bubbles, and a lovely peachy color.

Food Pairing

The soft and creamy style of Cuvée M pairs really well with spice food
(Indian, Thai, etc). For dessert, pair with lighter options like fresh fruit or
angel food cake.
