Food Pairings for Forgeron Cellars Chardonnay Columbia Valley
The hot days and cool nights of the Columbia Valley produce grapes of exceptional flavor -- the hot days inspire the development of complex sugars while the cool nights yield crispness and acidity. Rated “Excellent/Exceptional” by the Washington Wine Report, this blend of 94% Chardonnay, 6% Orange Muscat, aged in a blend of new and used French oak, boasts crisp flavors of Granny Smith Apple and Bartlett Pears (also grown in the Columbia Valley). The low alcohol and high acidity make this a perfect wine to enjoy with seafood, pasta and chicken dishes. Founded in 2001 on the site of a former blacksmith’s shop, Forgeron (French for, yes, “blacksmith”) is the magical laboratory of Marie-Eve Gilla. Perhaps one of Washington’s most pedigreed winemakers, Gilla mixes parts of her early experience in the vineyards of Burgundy with over 22 years of expertise earned in Washington wineries such as Argyle, Covey Run, Gordon Brothers and Hogue Cellars. Gilla’s winemaking skills have earned her a bevy of positive press and make her a winemaker you can count on for consistency, quality, and always, a little bit of surprise.
External Reviews for Forgeron Cellars Chardonnay Columbia Valley
At Forgeron Cellars, we are so excited that our 2006 Chardonnay is the closest we have ever come to a traditional Burgundy! Assertive aromas of green apple and peach lead to a mouthful of dense and creamy flavors. Layered and full bodied, yet fresh with pear, citrus and mineral notes outlining its fruity character. This wine is very satisfying from start to finish, built in the Forgeron Cellars tradition.
