Originally created for the Reagan/Gorbachev summit meetings the 2004 Russian Cuvee is a blend of 68% Pinot Noir and 32% Chardonnay aged 3 years on its yeast. Like all of these sparklers it reveals lots of persistent effervescence tiny well-formed bubbles a light straw color and a distinctive perfume of orange rind and honeyed citrus. In the mouth it cuts a fuller-bodied mouthfeel than its siblings and displays more intensity. Even though it is made from the same blend as the Classic Vintage Brut the Russian Cuvee is much longer richer and more intense. This deep wine shows off the impressive character of this house. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.
