Premier Cru

Our Battonage Chardonnay is composed in a classical Burgundian style. Fresh fruit flavors of pear and apple are complemented by light notes of buttery toasted oak, underlined by a distinctive mineral character. It was aged on the lees in small French and Hungarian oak barrels, resulting in a Chardonnay that has an elegant freshness, vivid acidity, and a long, harmonious nish.


This stunning vintage has received the following accolades:
90 point Gold Medal from the Beverage Tasting Institute's World Wine Championships 
89 Point rating from the Wine Enthusiast
Gold Medal from the Denver International Wine Festival
Silver medal from the Chardonnay du Monde
