Tasting Notes
Delicious aromas are reminiscent of a pastry bakery filled with powdered sugar, brûléed marshmallow, nutmeg, clove play with blooming spring florals and jasmine tea. Flavors are replete with yellow orchard fruits, mandarin, raw honey, and jasmine. The palette rushes with racing acidity followed by a hint of round and nutty complexity that will only add to personality with age.
94 Points, International Wine Report: "The 2021 La Belle Promenade Chardonnay presents a lovely glistening light lemon core with a watery rim. Sweet and spicy on the nose, with elements of grilled cinnamon and sugar white peaches, crushed volcanic rock, dried thyme, and dried pineapple. Round and full on the palate, with balanced acidity levels and a fruit-forward and toasted hazelnut finish that completes the wine." - Jeremy Young

100% La Belle Promenade Vineyard | Chehalem Mountains AVA | 700 - 800’ Elevation | Northeastern & Southwestern Exposure | Volcanic Soils, Jory & Nekia | Planted to Mixed Pinot Noir Clones | La Belle Promenade Vineyard is planted to 36 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Grüner Veltliner and Aligoté. It sits on top of volcanic soils, with the western portion of the site consisting of a thick layer of fractured basalt. Due in part to its high elevation, this site allows for great diversity in concert with our other estate vineyard, Flanerie.
