Member Review by LuisRuben:

Good solid chard, have not had it in a while, but I remember it from Diamond Backs. Not big on white though.

  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

a little too buttery for me but a good value to drink with an oily fish like salmon or black cod.

A great Chardonnay. Perfect with a Cesar salad or chicken

This is a medium bodied wine, with ripe fruity flavors of pear, crisp green apple, vanilla and toasty caramel. Approximately 70% of the wine is barrel fermented, to integrate fruit and oak flavors. Partial malolactic fermentation adds a rich texture and buttery component on the palate. Sonoma County Chardonnay is aged in the barrel for 6ndash;8 months before bottling. Perfect for sipping alone or with fish, chicken or lighter pasta dishes.

This white has nice, ripe flavors of peaches and tropical fruits, and good oak. Rich and creamy, this Chard offers lots of pleasure at a good price.
