Mon Plaisir has been produced since 1987 from a vineyard located in the hills above Alexander Valley. The cool and low-yielding vineyard enhances the extracted perfume that makes Mon Plaisir a rare single vineyard designation. This year, long alcoholic and malolactic fermentations allowed us to develop even further its intense and complex bouquet, as well as a round and very "gras" mouth feel.

Tasting Notes:

Open and intense, this wine is indeed a true pleasure, display¬ing an exquisite bouquet of lemon cream, candied pineapple and honey. The palate is rich, full-bodied and creamy with beautiful fresh lemon, golden delicious apple, brioche and mineral notes. Hints of pain grille and hazelnut complete the long final mouth feel of this wine.
