    Winemaker Notes

    Pale color. Perfumed aromas of lime blossom and nutmeg. Strong mousse. Ripe and rich but quite lively, with harmonious balancing acidity giving the flavors good definition. Finishes ripe, long and generous, with excellent cut.

    Diebolt-Vallois
    Established in 1959 in the village of Cramant, this family-run domaine has 22.5 acres of vines, primarily in the Côte des Blancs, where chalky soil provides the perfect home for Grand Cru Chardonnay. One of the most highly respected producers in France, Jacques Diebolt is a passionate and outgoing winemaker. Together with his wife, Nadia Vallois, daughter, Isabelle, and son, Arnaud, he produces magnificent Blanc de Blancs Champagnes.

    Diebolt-Vallois Champagnes are classic and refined, creamy and balanced, with fine, elegant bubbles. Their two top wines, Fleur de Passion and Cuvée Préstige, are some of the best values in Champagne today.

    Santa Maria Valley

    View all wine

    A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely east to west starting near the coast, allowing Pacific Ocean air to funnel through and cool the vineyards. This allows grapes to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, this creates an ideal environment for grape growing.

    Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has proven quite successful in the region as well. Many vineyards here are owned by growers who sell their grapes to wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottle from different wineries. Bien Nacido is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.

    Chardonnay

    View all wine

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
