User Reviews for Beaulieu Bv Coastal Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

Swirl, Sniff, Sip This lovely and elegant Carneros Chardonnay reflects both a long growing season and the benefits derived from new Dijon clones in the vineyard. Medium intense green-gold color with green pear, green almond, honey and apple fruit aromas, as well as a fine, lightly nutty aroma from lees aging. Medium-bodied, with typical Carneros Chardonnay aromas, and also fine subtle vanilla oak character. Bright acidity combined with creamy richness gives this wine a lengthy finish. A wine of excellent personality. Food Ideas: An ideal companion to marinated and grilled lemon chicken or a ripe, semi-soft cheese like French Morbier or Italian Fontina. Also, try it with shellfish and pasta salads. Winemaking Grapes were de-stemmed and gently crushed, retaining 25% whole berries. After a 3-5 day cold maceration to extract color and aroma compounds, the juice was fermented in stainless steel at an average temperature of 80 deg. F. The cap was punched down several times a day during the 7-9 days of fermentation, and the wine pressed off at dryness to barrels for completion of malolactic fermentation and further aging. The wine spent 9 months in barrels of 85% French, 13% American, and 2% Russian oak (30% new barrels). Varietal: 100% Chardonnay The Place: 90% Carneros, Napa Valley and 10% Sonoma
