95 points, “Round and lush; chamomile, spiced apple, and acacia blossom wind through this opulent wine. Orange peel and white peach streamline the elegant ﬁnish.” – The SOMM Journal
Cuvaison’s Chardonnay 2016 is brimming with fleshy peach and mango, crunchy green apple, elegant oak spices and honeysuckle. Although it all sounds opulent, lush and larger than life, as if daubed with sweeping brush strokes, the canvas for this artwork is pulled tightly onto a delicate frame, and it’s painted with intricate detail and control. Serve alongside roasted chicken stuffed with lemon and herbs, or with rich creamy dishes, buttery fish or mild curries with nutty sauces.
Established in 1969 by a fourth-generation winemaking family from Switzerland, Cuvaison was one of the pioneers that shaped a new era of winemaking in Napa Valley, one that focuses on vibrancy and vineyard terroir. Their winemaker Steven Rogstad has had a long and illustrious career that has seen him cross paths with Saintsbury, La Crema, Clos Pegase, Rombauer, Dominus, Duckhorn, Spottswoode and Viader in various capacities, so this Carneros estate is in the safe hands of a cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir expert.
