2010 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
Bonneau to go
Built in the Burgundian style, today’s gold medal-winning (S.F. Chronicle International Wine Competition) 2010 Bonneau Winery Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is an elegant, refined and truly delicious wine.
French in style, this wine drinks very smoothly - despite the higher alcohol content. In fact, the wine is so smooth that you’d think that the ABV was far lower.
With easy fruit, soft minerals and a very appealing mouthfeel, this fresh - and refreshing - wine is one that we’d recommend as a cocktail wine. Enjoy it on the porch or patio, with a wide assortment of lighter snacks. Be sure to include good friends and loved ones for best results!
Lovely golden hues, with perfect concentration of color, from core to glistening edge.
This wine leads with citrus, dried straw, pineapple, fuji apple and subtle spice. As the wine warms, it reveals additional aromas of delicate white peach, vanilla, nutmeg and guava.
Balanced with tart and sweet flavors that juxtapose toasty and earthy flavors. Citrus, green apple, white pear and white peach take the lead. These are beautifully balanced against hazelnet, limestone and subtle white flower petals.
Clean, fresh and light with lingering fruit that gradually leads to a soft minerality. At the edge of the palate, tannins very gradually take hold, adding a bit of a kick at the very end.
Enjoy this wine with Brie and asparagus, or a lightly battered white fish.
