Tasting notes

Our 16th vintage of Lumière Chardonnay is our most limited production in many years. Granny Smith apples, Anjou pears, citrus blossoms, toasted hazelnuts, minerals, and a kiss of sweet vanillin French oak. Balanced by a finely detailed structure, Lumière is splendid now, but is designed to age beautifully for many years to come.

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

Movie pairing: Harold and Maude

FOUNDERS NOTES:
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.
