Winemaker Notes

Sunny yellow straw in the glass with concentrated aromas that amass with lemon verbena, pineapple and paper whites. On the tongue, the flavors come in waves of mango, mint, thyme and sugar & cinnamon toast. A long lemon meringue pie finish with a touch of lime peel for complexity.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chardonnay Graton’s Choice is a bold, concentrated Chardonnay with loads of beeswax, honeysuckle, tangerine oil and tropical fruit. It is rich, full-bodied, and probably closest in style to some of the Chardonnay Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer have made at Marcassin Estate on the Sonoma Coast. This is a beauty to drink over the next 3-4 years.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A rich yet delicate style, with a trim offering of spicy oak, key lime, lemon and green apple notes that hold their focus, ending with a clean, zesty aftertaste.

Chasseur, California
Chasseur Winery Image
Chasseur Wines is dedicated to small lot, hand-crafted wines in the old French tradition with emphasis on vineyard designates. Our small size (presently about 2,700 cases) allows complete control over the winemaking process, therefore, enabling us to produce the finest wines the fruit has to offer. We are pursuing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay's final and possibly finest frontier, Sonoma's 'West County'. Still in its renaissance this area is composed of the western edge of the Russian River Valley and beyond, known as the 'true' Sonoma Coast. This area is in and around the townships of Sebastopol, Freestone and Occidental.

Our goal is to be among the pioneers to develop the potential of this area. Please explore our web site to learn more about how we make these wines from grape to glass. We offer all these wines, especially the smaller lots which may not make it to the retail shelf or the restaurant wine list through the winery.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
