The Bon Vivant Chardonnay, as its name implies, is in a class by itself. Each year, as we taste through our cellar, certain barrels rise to the top. It could be their sense of decadent power, or their graceful precision and minerality that draw us to those barrels. Consequently, each time we revisit these special barrels, the blurry image of the final composition begins to take form. Ultimately, in the end, it is our yearly masterstroke: our most complex and layered wine. With a full spectrum of ripe fruits, layers of floral aromas are gilded with the brilliant spice from new oak. The Bon Vivant Chardonnay is a true masterpiece from our La Belle Promenade Vineyard.

Tasting Notes
Each vintage the Bon Vivant Chardonnay is hand selected from our most exciting barrels in the cellar; this 2022 vintage is nothing short of OUTSTANDING. On the nose pronounced aromas of crème brulé, white peach, lemon, wet stone and a touch of lovely reduction set the stage. On the palate, flavors of lemon, tangerine, peach skin and vanilla are delightfully framed by age worthy acidity beautiful medium bodied texture and a lengthy finish. This wine is full of power and life!
