Mission Briefing

Codename:

Go, Go Grgich!

We just love an excellent Chardonnay, but when a stupendous one comes along, we really swoon. We are thrilled to report that today’s Grgich Hills Estate 2011 Estate Grown Napa Valley Chardonnay handily earns the stupendous moniker.

Year after year, Grgich Chardonnay outsells every other Chardonnay that we showcase. Always, their Chardonnays are fresh, crisp, flavorful and very food friendly. If you enjoy great Chardonnay, you might just fall in love with today’s special wine.

Enjoy now, but stock up for spring and summer.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light straw yellow color, from heart to edge, with just a touch of viscosity.

Smell:

Very aromatic, with notes of buttery brioche, sweet vanilla bean, Meyer lemon, green apple, and grilled white peach.

Taste:

Beautifully balanced, and exactly what you hope for in a Napa Chardonnay, this wine has robust flavors of Meyer lemon, white peach, caramel-dipped green apple, and a touch of buttery vanilla.

Finish:

Long, elegant, and entirely approachable, the creamy fruit flavors slowly trail off, leaving a touch of honey at the very end of the palate.

Pairing:

A classic meal of French whole roasted chicken, cooked with fresh thyme, lemon slices, and root vegetables.
