Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Belle Terre Chardonnay opens with inviting aromas of Meyer lemon zest, ripe stone fruit and sweet vanilla spice. The wine is medium-bodied with juicy fruit flavors of pineapple and lemon underpinned with a very subtle toasted almond note. The well-structured wine is balanced by a line of racy acidity leading to a mouthwatering, lengthy finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An outstanding wine is the 2015 Chardonnay Belle Terre Vineyard. This wine, which gets the full monty of malolactic fermentation, offers up notes of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango, has the telltale honeysuckle, crushed rock minerality and a fresh, medium to full-bodied style. It’s a beauty and fairly priced. Drink it over the next 2-4 years.

Sonoma County, California

Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, some believe that Alexander Valley Cabernets truly rival the best from Napa Valley and many of the heavy-hitter producers have largely invested here.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel thrive here. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have also been discovered and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.

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.
