Clos du Bois Chardonnay Alexander Valley Reserve 2007
Clos du Bois Sonoma Reserve Series wines are barrel-selected cuvees that represent a small, rigorously limited share of the winery's production of a given variety. Winemaker Erik Olsen seeks out exceptional vineyards throughout Sonoma County, then individually selects the finest barrels to produce wines that stand as testaments to the region's unique terroirs. From the cool, fog-bound environs of the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast, to the volcanic hillsides of Alexander Valley and the sun-baked slopes of Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County's diverse soils and microclimates find their true expression in these handcrafted wines.

Brilliant silver, straw yellow in color, this aromatic Chardonnay explodes with scents of Mandarin citrus, ripe pear and lime, with jasmine and spice overtones. The palate is bright and juicy, with refreshing flavors of ripe pear and citrus. The wine's lush, well-integrated oak and smooth, creamy texture were achieved by aging sur lie for eight months before bottling.
