Grape variety:  Chardonnay

Producer: Chappellet

Alcohol content: 14.5%

Origin: California, USA

Notes: Burgundian in character, our Chardonnay is made in the French style: bright fruit flavors, acidity, minerality and subtle hints of oak.  We think it is a wonderful food-friendly wine that compliments a broad range of dishes.

This wine offers a delicious combination of baked apple, pear and lemon zest aromas, as well as hints of hazelnut, baking spice and brioche. Additional layers of melted butter, brown sugar and beautiful spicy oak contribute to the complex Burgundian character of the nose. On the palate, this wine is fleshy and round, with enticing mineral, citrus, quince and pear flavors. Spice notes of clove, cardamom and toasted wood add an intriguing counterpoint to the fruit.  All the elements seamlessly integrate, creating a rich, elegant mouthfeel that is toned by natural acidity and persists long on the finish.

Food Pairing: Bay Scallops Pan Roast, Poached Salmon, Lobster
