2012 CUVAISON Chardonnay Carneros Napa Valley


750 ML

11 in stock


Our Estate Chardonnay is a carefully crafted blend of wines from 44 distinct blocks in our Carneros estate vineyard. Each block is vinified separately, using classic yet minimal winemaking techniques such as barrel fermentation, French oak aging and partial malolactic fermentation, all in harmony with the vintage. When blended, the Estate Chardonnay gracefully reflects the layered characteristics of Chardonnay to be found across our estate.

Wine Enthusiast – 88 Points

This longtime Carneros producer sources from dozens of its own blocks to put together this estate Chardonnay. Intense in floral aromas as well as peach and lemon, it’s dusted only slightly in clove and a light barrel imprint. Bright on the tongue and on the finish, it’s a food-friendly wine that will complement. VIRGINIE BOONE
