Winemaker Notes

With a pale lemon hue glinting with gold on the meniscus, the nose runs the gamut from white-petaled flowers, apples, and pears, to citrus peel, piecrust, and clotted cream. The palate is replete with notes of lemon curd, tarte Tatin, marzipan and just a hint of fennel. Its creamy texture is balanced with bright acid and lingers on the finish to create full-bodied yet refreshing experience

Coming from the old vines beside the estate and the first release for the cuvée, the 2018 Chardonnay Carbone was barrel fermented (no malolactic) and aged roughly 10 months in 20% new French oak. A Chablis-like nose of lemon curd, salted citrus, tart pineapple, and sappy white flower notes all just jump from the glass, and it's racy and vibrant on the palate, with more salinity, yet still packs plenty of richness and depth.

Stones and sliced cooked apples with straw and green-melon undertones. Full-bodied, tight and chewy. Extremely dense, yet bright. No malo gives it the edge. Tastes like traditional Chablis. Yes. Drink or hold.

COMMENTARY: In recent years, the Coombsville AVA has become a top-quality, emerging grape-growing region. The 2018 Favia Carbone Chardonnay is an excellent example of a bright and racy style. TASTING NOTES: This wine sits on the edge of acidity and crispness. Its aromas and flavors of green apples, chalk, and citrus should pair it well with a bucket of steamed clams. (Tasted: September 26, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

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.
