Vaunted for its heady aromas, Genevrières is our top Chardonnay from winemaker Pierre Morey. We offer two great vintages: 2010 and 2005. The 2010 vintage requires cellaring; this vintage (2005) is ready to drink now.

  • Decadent. Apple-laced crême brûlée in a glass. A rich, powerful Chardonnay likely to please those who love a full-bodied white. The plush nose offers caramel, apple, peach and vanilla. Gobs of apple and cream on the palate, with a toasty finish that nevertheless retains some green apple bite. This wine will make you crave lobster.

    Food pairing: Lobster

  • The complex, moderately intense nose suggests wet earth, white truffles, earthy minerality, butter, sweet baking spice, cider and something savory. Wonderfully layered, complex, and balanced, the palate shows minerality, orange, lemon, toasted hazelnut, and butterscotch flavors. There’s a lovely creaminess, along with a satisfying weightiness, savory qualities, and an almost chewy texture. Drinking beautifully now!

    Food pairing: Poultry and seafood in sauce
