“If you have a friend that says, "I only drink white Burgundy,' use this to shut them up. There's no comeback. Lime and lemon zest, posh butter, roasted mixed nuts, nectarines, dried herbs, pineapple juice and pears. Elegant, lively, refined. A complete and utter showstopper.”

what producer says
Named for Joe's mother, the matriarch of the family, Nancie Chardonnay is made from a quartet of cool, Sonoma County vineyards: one is an old vineyard on Sonoma Mountain, one lies off of Westside Road, the third is in Bennett Valley, and the fourth is our old-vine, dry-farmed, estate Chardonnay vineyard. Sonoma Mountain is influenced by cool ocean breezes, rocky soils, and high elevation. The third is a Russian River Valley property bearing 30+-year-old vines that grow a wine both rich and mineral in texture. The fourth and newest to the blend is a unique parcel nestled in a hillside in the cool Green Valley. The wine is aged for 10 months in oak barrels with 20% being new French oak.
