A rare bird. This Signatue Collection wine is our original 100% Dijon clone Chardonnay from the Deux Chevaux Vineyard in Yountville, which we have been producing since 2001. Very Burgundian in style, with a rich nose and full-bodied mouthfeel. 100% barrel fermented and barrel aged. Elegant, rich, lingering finish.

Aromatically expressive with notes of lemon, yellow apple, lychee, mandarin orange and toasted coconut. The medium palate weight carries the pleasant acidity, which provides great structure and mouthfeel for this wine. Flavors of honeycomb, oats and vanilla bean evolve with time and transition into subtle notes of hazelnut and buttered caramel.
The Deux Chevaux Vineyard is a 60-acre vineyard situated in the Yountville Appellation, north-east of the town of Yountville. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Chardonnay. Deux Chevaux is French for “two horses,” the namesake of Tamber Bey.
