Flambeaux, Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, 2019

Sale price£87.00


The Flambeaux Sonoma Coast Chardonnay expresses a wonderful balance of rich, ripe fruit with a hint of minerality. Hints of butterscotch crème brûlée lend a gentle frame to pear, honeysuckle, and lemon curd with a pleasing tang of clean slate. The long, nuanced finish invites more sips. The Flambeaux Sonoma Coast Chardonnay comes from two world-class vineyards owned by the Sangiacomo family, one of Sonoma County’s original—and leading—grape-growing families. Located near the Petaluma Gap, the Roberts Road Vineyard is characterized by cool temperatures and coastal fogs. The block is planted with the Dijon clone 95, a variety ideally suited for even the coolest climates and which adds a sparkling minerality and a green apple component to the blend. The Kiser Vineyard is situated farther inland in southwestern Sonoma and is planted with the Wente clone, a cultivar that contributes bright acidity balanced with the concentrated and weighty stone fruit flavors.
