K&L Notes

Beaulieu Vineyard is a historically significant winery in California's Rutherford AVA that has been producing wine for more than a century. During Prohibition, it managed to obtain a contract to supply sacramental wine to churches (increasing their business fourfold), meaning it was able to remain in production between 1920 and 1933 when the Volstead Act was repealed. This makes Beaulieu one of the longest continually operational wineries in the United States. Winery note: "With its perfect balance of creamy opulence and bright acidity, our 2014 Reserve Carneros Chardonnay shows off our finest vineyards in the Los Carneros region. Lush aromas of white peach, exotic tropical fruit, crème brûlée, honeycomb and white flower lead to round, fruit-intense flavors that flow across the palate. Barrel fermentation and sur lie aging enhanced the wine’s rich texture and flavor complexity while integrating vanilla and oak spices that linger on the finish."

    California Chardonnay sometimes gets a bad rap. And yes there are some pretty appalling examples out there. This wine from BV however takes a classic flavor profile, that has taken the wine world by storm over the last few decades, and delivers a faithful rendition with notable balance and length. It's a rich wine with plenty of tropical fruit, baked apple pie and creamy notes. But there is also a nice saline component, a core of bright acidity, the oak is well judged and not overbearing. This is going to make a lots of classic CA Chardonnay drinkers happy especially at our super sharp pricing.
