We recently introduced the newest member of the EnRoute family: EnRoute Chardonnay, Les Brumeux. We pride ourselves in our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, but we have to admit that the area also makes a fantastic Chardonnay.
Sensory Evaluation: The 2012 EnRoute Chardonnay, Les Brumeux opens with crisp and flinty aromas of peach, orange blossom, citrus and subtle notes of pineapple. These fruit-dominated aromas slowly give way to floral and mineral notes with citrus zest. Upon entry, beautiful creaminess and stone fruits evolve into warm, toasty oak with an oily texture that coats the entire palate. The wonderfully bright and lively acidity keeps the mouthfeel balanced and leads to a mouthwatering and refreshing finish.
The complete winemaker's notes can be found here. If you're interested in acquiring this limited vintage, please contact us at (707) 944-2412.
We also noticed the 2012 EnRoute Chardonnay has been making its rounds on Instagramand Twitter – if you get a chance to taste Les Brumeux, snap a photo and tweet us with your thoughts at @EnRouteWine!
