Winemaker Notes

For Jean-Charles Boisset, the lemon/tropical aromas of thisChardonnay are especially ALLURING, calling the taster backover and over again. The lush, créme-brulée like texture isrich, yet the wine has an elegance that makes it quiteEPHEMERAL. Finally, the long, ripe finish is delicious. It makesyou insanely INSATIABLE.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
In contrast, the 2011 Chardonnay No. 81 exhibits more wet stone, white peach, apricot and gravelly notes along with a steely backbone, good acidity and excellent freshness. This impressive, mineral-laced, linear-styled, impeccably made Chardonnay should drink well for 3-4 years.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
A beautiful Chardonnay, dry, crisp in acidity and complex in tropical and citrus fruit, peach, honey and oak flavors. The richness is balanced by a flavorful minerality, and the finish is dry. At this price, the wine can stand beside more expensive Chardonnays, which makes it a value.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

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.
