Tasting notes

Our 17th vintage of Lumière Chardonnay is a bigger richer style due to extended barrel aging which brings a different level of oak integration and impact than in past years. The nose opens with apple blossoms, ripe golden apple, marzipan, hazelnut, and toasty oak. On the palate are rich concentrated flavors of brioche, more golden apples, pineapple, cinnamon, toasted almond and citrusy vanilla. Lush and supple, a gem for chardonnay lovers.

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

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.
