While the 2004 Chardonnay La Carriere does not display the size and power of the 2003, it possesses that extraordinary minerality, orange marmalade, and layered, full-bodied, concentrated palate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cuvee Indigene exemplifies our efforts to capture the pure es¬sence of a vineyard through the use of indigenous fermentation. This creates a focused and seamless wine, one that shows off the vineyard's mountain terroir. Fermenting the wine this way also takes 3 to 4 times longer than the conventional method of adding commercially cultured yeast. This long, slow barrel fermentation creates optimal conditions for the development of complex aromas and flavors and imparts a distinct silky texture and long finish.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of candied orange, lemon drop, dry apricot, dry fig and Mirabelle plum, interact with touches of vanilla and elements of meringue and creme-brulee to form this remarkable multi-lay¬ered and intense bouquet. Complexity, richness, "lots of gras" and concentration characterize the palate of this spectacular edition of Cuvee Indigene, promising to age gracefully.
