David created the Jeanne Marie label to offer great value California wine by utilizing the many contacts he has in Napa and Sonoma to source the finest grapes available. Producers such as Caymus, Lewis Cellars and Miner Family provided grapes and helped with the winemaking for earlier cuvees. The wineries that are currently used wish to remain anonymous, but the quality has remained very high.
Jeanne Maries Chardonnay is medium bodied and elegant, with ripe melon and citrus flavors. A touch of minerality and lively acidity keeps this wine fresh and focused. A well balanced Chardonnay, this wine is just right. Not too much oak, not too buttery, and just enough ripe green pear and yummy caramel notes to round it out, this lip smacking Chardonnay is terrific for the price.
