  Clos du Bois didn’t start small and build up like many other wineries - it started with a bang. When it produced its first vintage in 1974, it already had 520 acres under vine in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. When Frank Woods was coming up with the name for his winery, he thought of “Woods Winery,” obviously named after himself, but his children had something else in mind. They were taking French at the time, and instead of “Woods Winery,” they thought of “Clos du Bois,” which loosely translates to “enclosure in the woods.” Obviously the name stuck, and Clos du Bois was born. Since then, Clos du Bois has come a long way. From 520 acres, the winery has expanded to 925 acres of their own, along with many partnerships with other wineries. Instead of partnering with a few, large vineyards, the winery works with many small- and medium-sized growers across numerous appellations. Most of the grapes it purchases from other vineyards are from Sonoma County, but some come from Coastal California as well. Erik Olsen, their current winemaker, joined in June 2003, and has since taken those grapes and made them into very well-received wines. Read less

I found this to be very astringent, not pleasing at all.

Fruity, acidic and not much else. I like a creamier flavor in chardonnay.

Nice luminous yellow. Typical CA chardonnay. Lots of oak and butter, but a nice tinge of acidity that really brings out the flavors. It makes me lust for a big, creamy pasta dish. A good wine, in spite of the anti-california-chard trend that is sweeping the wine world.

Delightfully light and fruity. I am not so good that I can tell what fruits, but I taste honey, light acidity, maybe apricot jam? I don't really know, just really tastes great with a good aroma.

Our Classic Sonoma County Chardonnay exhibits ripe fruity flavors of pear, crisp green apple, vanilla and toasty caramel. A medium-bodied wine, approximately 70% is barrel-fermented to integrate fruit and oak flavors.

Long, intense flavors dominate this barrel-fermented wine. Aromas of buttered toast and fall fruits make this a fine Chardonnay.

Wine Tasting NotesAromas of apple blossom, pear and sweet lemon drop are complimented by toasty oak, spice and a buttery nuance imparted from the malolactic fermentation and barrel aging. The flavors reflect the aromas and are bright and juicy with rich ripe apple and pear. A rich smooth mouthfeel and silky texture lead to a medium-long finish.
