2016 Le Ciel Serein Chardonnay

We call this vineyard “Le Ciel Serein” - The Serene Sky. Rolling hills of exceptional soil are the hallmarks of this site, carefully developed between 2002 and 2004 and planted with Wente clone Chardonnay. This winery exclusive Chardonnay shows a medium yellow golden hue. The nose offers grilled pineapple, golden hay, and freshly buttered toast. The palate is no less exotic, presenting cashew nut, sugar cookie, lemon curd, and vanilla pudding.

This block has a northerly orientation which enables extended hang time that translates into tremendous flavor development at relatively low sugar levels. The 2016 vintage was no exception. We harvested 2.37 tons of beautiful grapes, slightly bronzed by the sun, on the 14th of September.
