Sonoma-Cutrer The Cutrer Chardonnay 2002
A fresh, elegant lobster salad is an excellent pairing with the rich flavors of The Cutrer. Remove the cooked meat from the lobster and slice the tail into medallions; gently spread the medallions into a half round on a bed of butter lettuce, placing one perfect claw on the side. Dress sparingly with light oil, lemon juice, The Cutrer and a touch of Dijon mustard, balanced with a little sugar, salt and pepper. The leanness of the salad complements the full flavors of this special Chardonnay. Other main course suggestions are grilled western veal chops or a simple chicken breast sauté with a sauce of The Cutrer, butter and freshly minced tarragon.

The winery is known for crafting world-class expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir by marrying traditional Burgundian winemaking methods with their own California innovation. Few wine producers in the world have such a singular focus and commitment to growing, crafting, and marketing their wines. This is evident as Sonoma-Cutrer has been named the #1 Most Requested Chardonnay 24 out of 29 years by the Wine & Spirits Magazine.
