- Wine Tasting Note by KS, February 2010

83% Dijon Clone, 17% Wente
WOW! Vintage after vintage this is THE Oregon Chardonnay to beat. Look out below when I’m drinking it, because expletives will be a droppin’! If more Oregon producers made Chardonnay like this, California would be in serious trouble. Crisp apple and pear fruit, with a bit of creamy crème brulee and little notes of Spanish olive-oil. The texture is supple and the finish persistent. This is (with Calera Mt. Harlan), one of our two best domestic chards at any price.

A touch of gold to the eye. A bit of apricot to the nose. Beautiful expressive chardonnay fruit on the palate. Light bodied, crisp and balanced with some apple and light oak on the back palate. A dry finish that stays with you in the nicest of ways.
- wine tasting note by JN, May 2009

Spicy and high toned in the nose with apple, nutmeg, and a little smoky yeast. The mouth is crisp and elegant but really persistent and long at the same time. The same spiced apple notes from the nose follow through nicely into the mouth. This is a very sexy chardonnay which is clearly not from California.

Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 2017 
Characteristics: Joseph Drouhin 2009 Chassagne-Montrachet | 13% | From the renowned vine clad village of Chassagne-Montrachet in the Côte des blancs in the south of the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy and the tranquility of the 2009 vintage, this combines the charm of calm with the verve of Chassagne. Mid slope vineyards ensure the best of every vintage and this is no exception. Fragrant and florid even down to its flavorsome impact on the palate, this is a pure and shining example of not only the angelic power of Chassagne-Montrachet but the clear interpretation when fostered by the hands of Drouhin –an elegant house nonpareil. Despite all its creamy cedar and blossom, verve and texture, the minerality of Chassagne-Montrachet comes through clearly suggesting I have pulled the cork at a lovely time in its development. A deft balance makes quite the impression and perhaps it is for 12 months in (25% new) oak barrels. For table talk, the Drouhins tell us how the name Chassagne comes from "cassanos" a Celtic word used for a place where oak trees grow while the "rachet" means a poor, dry, infertile soil, “a paradox when thinking of the richness of the Chassagne-Montrachet wines!” I can only imagine what this might express on a Fruit or Flower day –such a marvelous wine here and now.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, April 22, 2014 (Leaf)

"A generous and elegant wine. Light golden colour. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate".

Tablas Creek Cotes de Tablas Blanc 2017 
Characteristics: Tablas Creek 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc, Paso Robles | 24% Viognier, 30% Marsanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, 6% Roussanne | An organic estate wine from northern Rhône varieties Firm and fragrant –quite mineral in an upright structure| 100% stainless steel but on its lees until bottling lending a wonderful breadth and mouthfeel through the finish. Granache Blanc was never before seen or planted in the states before Tablas Creek brought it over and pioneered the variety from their nursery. Melon, orange, firm apricots and peaches, a gentle fragrance but certainly reflected on the palate. A truly elegant daresay French scope on a gifted, Biodynamically dry farmed plot of American soil –and an incredible wine.
