2010 Équinoxe Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes

Équinoxe Chardonnay is available EXCLUSIVELY to Wine Society Members and those on our Email Wait List.

Many factors contribute to the majesty of this wine: low yields, old vines, cool micro climate, cool fermentation and aging in the finest, most nuanced, French oak barrels. Severine cared for the 2 barrels like her own children and crafted a Chardonnay that is both feminine and structured. This is a wine that merits cellaring.

Pairings

With the many different layers of this wine, we like to pair it with a simple dish. Pan fried trout or halibut with a side of vegetables works perfectly and allows this wine to show you everything it has to offer.
