Leave it to Domaine Serene to take on a new wine project and produce a home run. One of Oregon’s leading wineries, Domaine Serene has focused on crafting world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for more than two decades. Noting the increasing trend in the market to produce great sparkling wine, Domaine Serene’s founders Grace and Ken Evenstad created a separate winery space to only focus on producing sparkling wine sourced from estate vineyards.
I had the great fortune to try their new sparkling wine a few days back and was captivated by the new wine. The wine was aged for at least four years prior to release. Their M.V. Domaine Serene ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Sparkling Wine (WWB, 93) is seriously good and is a 500 case production wine that is sourced from the Mark Bradford, Côte Sud, Gold Eagle and Triple Crown Vineyards. There is a racy acidity to this wine that really impresses and a wonderful mouthfeel. While this is only their first wine produced, they will produce more wines in the future, including multiple vintage sparkling wines.

M.V. Domaine Serene ‘Evenstand Reserve’ Sparkling Wine- Weighing in at 12.1% alcohol, this is the first sparkling wine bottling that Domaine Serene has ever made — and the Evenstads have hit a total home run with their beautiful new wine. On the nose there takes on good musty character with wild mushroom and brioche that connect with bright green apple and kumquat aromatics that build in the glass. Bright and compelling, the wonderful effervesce impresses. The generous mouthfeel really entices as the wine unveils white truffle, Gravenstein apple, lemon curd and Challah bread notes on the palate. This was tasted over more than an hour, switching from Champagne flute to Pinot Noir glass and it is quite obvious that this rich sparkling wine is best enjoyed in a Pinot Noir glass. Enjoy this fantastic bottling over the next decade or more. Drink 2019-2029
