The La Belle Promenade Chardonnay is a unique portrait of the same vineyard each year. By design, it has the most symmetry, balancing the mineral, saline, and lemon-like tones of the rocky sections of the vineyard with just enough of the richness from the decomposed sections of soil. Consequently, the La Belle Promenade Chardonnay consistently reflects the vineyard’s balance year after year.

Tasting Notes
This wine transports us to a vibrant pastry bakery, where the intoxicating scents of powdered sugar and brûléed marshmallow mingle with alluring notes of pie spice and the enchantment of blooming spring florals and jasmine tea. Flavors of luscious yellow orchard fruits, and tangy mandarin intertwine seamlessly rich golden honey. Racy acidity paves the way to a captivating roundness 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
