Tasting notes

Stillwater Creek vineyard, a cooler site in the Frenchman Hills, gives us all we need to make Lumière. Featuring more bright fruit than its peers, this white exudes notes of lemon, citrus blossom, citronella, white peach and hazelnut, underscored by a kiss of toasty oak. Intense and pure, boosted by a racy structure. An elegant, well-balanced chardonnay reminiscent of cool site White Burgundy, Lumière is delicious now, but we’ve found it to age beautifully for a decade or more. 

Food pairing: Dungeness crab with lemon butter dripping off your elbows. Period. 

Movie pairing: Harold and Maude

Ah, Lumière. We love crisp, clean chardonnay produced in cooler sites and aged with judicious oak influence, such as we've enjoyed from producers in villages such as Chassagne Montrachet and from California producers like Stony Hill. Lumière is our attempt to deliver that kind of chardonnay experience. Best enjoyed with little pieces of Dungeness crab all over your face and lemon butter dripping off your chin. First produced in 2005, the older vintages are drinking beautifully still.
