Hand-selected from premium vineyards in Russian River Valley, the 2006 Calcaire exemplifies the
crisp, fresh fruit flavors that make cool climate Chardonnay so appealing. Brilliant, silver-straw yellow in color, this Chardonnay exhibits generous citrus-laced aromas of apple blossom and pear, nutmeg and crème brulée. In the mouth it is creamy and rich, with ripe pear and apple fruit a splash of refreshing lemon and lime. Although ready to drink now, the vibrant acidity of this wine will reward additional cellar aging.
This barrel-selection cuvée comes from some of the Russian River Valley's most sought-after
Chardonnay vineyards. Cooled by Pacific fog, the Russian River Valley's extended growing season
makes it one of the world's ideal terroirs for nurturing extraordinary Chardonnay.
Lite, lovley, nice finish, with a slightly chilled glass to hold the right temp, perfect.
