- Enjoy Until
The 2015 Lucie Chardonnay is sourced from Russian River Valley vines that are planted in coveted Dutton Ranch Vineyard’s Goldridge sandy loam soil. The fruit was whole cluster pressed to preserve maximum quality. Plenty of lemon custard, apple blossom, brioche and honeysuckle are present. The longer the wine is open, the more infectious the aroma and flavor becomes. While crisp and clean, it is incredibly rich on the palate. Barrel fermented and aged in Taransaud French oak barrels sur lie for 10 months.
