Winemaker Notes

The Reserve’s commanding entry of ripe Asian pear, juicy red apple, lemon curd and marzipan flavors set the scene for the real show-stopper of this wine: the hedonistically rich texture that fills the palate with voluminous flavor and leads them slowly into a long, lingering finish.

JS 94
James Suckling
Beautiful white with sliced apples and minerals and hints of vanilla and cream. Some biscuit. Full-bodied, very focused and tight with a driven finish. Extremely long and lively. Bright acidity kicks in at the end. Lovely now to drink, but will improve with age.
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck

Starting with the 2017 Chardonnay Reserve, which was all barrel fermented and aged, it has a medium-bodied, clean, crisp style as well as lots of lemon-laced fruits and subtle floral notes. Coming mostly from the Hyde Vineyard in Carneros, drink it any time over the coming 2-4 years.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Chardonnay Reserve is sporting loads of toasty oak to begin with underlying baked pears, apple pie and allspice notes plus a touch of pineapple upside down cake. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers loads of spicy apple and pear flavors with a lively backbone and oak-kissed finish.

Robert Mondavi  Winery Video

Born to a French family in Morocco and raised in France, Genevieve’s formal wine education began under the tutelage of the legendary “three fathers” of modern enology—Jean Ribereau-Gayon; his son, Pascal Ribereau-Gayon; and Emile Peynaud—with whom she studied at the University of Bordeaux, France. After receiving her National Diploma of Enology 1974, she returned to her family’s vineyards in Corsica and France, which she managed from 1974 to 1977. Concurrently, she also owned and operated her own enology laboratory in Provence and served as consulting enologist to many French chateaux in the mid-seventies. Drawn to Robert Mondavi Winery’s philosophy in winemaking and winegrowing, Genevieve moved to the Napa Valley in 1978. She recognized in Robert Mondavi her father’s holistic approach to quality. “It starts with the earth, the legacy of what she had received from her ancestors and what she was going to leave for the future generation,” she says. “We must work to maintain the land, to grow so that we all live in symbiosis: the earth, the vines, the people—care creates quality.” From 1978–1979, she fully absorbed this philosophy, working at Robert Mondavi Winery as a lab enologist and an assistant enologist. Deeply interested in the winemaking revolution taking hold in the state, Genevieve continued exploring California for the next decade, holding several consulting positions. Genevieve’s connection to Robert Mondavi returned in 1989, when she became Director of Production at Opus One Winery. Then, in 1997, she came full circle as the Director of Winemaking at Robert Mondavi Winery.

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

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.
