THE REVIEW

If you are a Kistler, Pahlmeyer or delicious Chardonnay fan in general, then you'll love Beau Vigne's Bacigalupi Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay. "This is one of my favorite unheralded producers in Napa Valley." Robert Parker
    Beau Vigne may currently be more recognized for its huge scoring Cabernet Sauvignons. However, their small production Reserve Chardonnay is outstanding and has some incomparable pedigree.
    The fruit for this sensational wine comes from the Russian River Valley's famous Bacigalupi Vineyard. These rare old vines produced the fruit that won the legendary 1976 blind Paris tasting defeating many acclaimed French wines. This event was the turning point in America's global ascent in the wine industry.
    Sophistication and poise define Beau Vigne's Reserve Chardonnay. Bright notes of citrus, floral lemon drop, lime soda, Key Lime Pie and Golden Delicious apples fill the glass. The barrel toast gives just the right amount of support without overpowering the fruit. The palate is clean and refreshing rather than fatty and fleshy.
    This is the perfect white to transition into the cooler months. Pair with fish, roasted chicken or your favorite pesto dish. Enjoy now and over the next 10 years.Read More »
