Copain 2012 Tous Ensemble Chardonnay
Smells so light and breezy. Green apple and lemon notes are inviting. A traditional French Chardonnay which is quite different that so many you will find in Napa Valley. Well manicured. Impressive structure in something that seems so light. It’s ridiculously delicate but lasts remarkably long. The great contrast makes for a wonderful experience. It’s easy going and great for a warm afternoon or lunch on the patio.

Winemaker Notes: “Fermented completely in stainless-steel tanks, our Tous Ensemble Chardonnay is bright and refreshing, balancing citrus fruit with stony minerality. Tangerine and lemon peel aromas lead to a smooth and well-textured mouthfeel with vibrant acidity and gentle flavors of citrus and pear.”
