The Reserve Chardonnay is a fresh, vibrant wine made from fruit grown in Clos du Val’s Carneros vineyard. This Chardonnay shows aromas and flavors of green apple and pear balanced by a hint of citrus zest and vanilla. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied showing concentrated fruit and toast with good acidity culminating in a long, clean finish that is characteristic of Clos du Val style.

Production Notes
A mild winter followed by a long, cool spring season contributed to a late bud break in 2010. The cool weather continued throughout the summer until the middle of August when we had two of the hottest days in history. Even in our Carneros Estate Vineyards, home to Clos du Val’s coolest vineyard blocks, temperatures soared well above 100 degrees, causing sun-burn on western exposed fruit. These burnt berries were removed by hand at the winery during harvest, which began 10 days later immediately following another cool spell. Harvest was completed on October 13th, just before the heavy rains came a week later damaging much of our neighboring winery’s fruit. Clos Du Val wines are showing the intensity of flavor that we get from longer, cooler growing seasons, which should result in another stellar vintage.
