2014 Brosseau Chardonnay

The Brosseau Chardonnay sings with flavors of dried apple, spiced caramel and persimmon, while a sonorous acidity and pure minerality reverberate throughout the palate. The intense aromatics of delicate spice, peach blossom and key lime unwind to a tightly structured core of perfectly ripe yellow fruits and limestone. A sublime vintage from the esteemed vineyard in the heart of the historic Chalone appellation, this offering once again mirrors the character of a cru Chablis.

VINEYARD NOTES:
Located in the Chalone appellation that made history in the 1976 Paris Tasting, Brosseau is Copain’s most southern vineyard source. These old vines, reaping the benefits of the cool marine influence, are planted in a particularly rocky mixture of limestone and decomposed granite. Whole-cluster pressed into neutral oak barrels, the mature Wente clones produce one of the most mineral-driven Chardonnays in California.

VINTAGE NOTES:
The 2014 vintage started dry but abundant February rain came just in time to break the winter drought. Warm spring temperatures encouraged an early bud break that kept vineyard development ahead of schedule through the entire season. Our harvest was condensed beginning September 3rd and concluding on September 24th. For the first time, our Pinot Noir and Syrah harvest overlapped. Abundant sunshine and cool evenings created near ideal conditions for ripe and balanced wines with yields falling in the normal range.
