Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay 2015


SKU 02085


The Copain winery is perched on a hill overlooking the Russian River Valley. Copain winemaker Wells Guthrie discovered early on that his taste in wine gravitated toward European wines in general and France's Rhône Valley in particular. So much so, he picked up and moved with his new bride to the region to learn from his heroes.. For two years, Wells apprenticed for esteemed winemaker and living legend Michel Chapoutier in France's Rhone Valley. During that time, Wells was deeply inspired by the traditions and practices of French winemaking, not to mention the European attitude that wine is an essential part of life. At Copain, he creates wines that are firmly rooted in California, yet with the sensibilities of the European wines that moved him. He is as committed to crafting these elegant, nuanced wines as he is to building a legacy that will be passed down to his daughters in the great tradition of European winemakers whose estates have been in the same family for generations.

VinousThe 2015 Chardonnay Tous Ensemble is a silky, voluptuous wine with lovely creaminess and intensity, while retaining its mid-weight personality. Baked apple, pear, white flowers and mint all open up nicely in the glass. This is a striking, value-priced Chardonnay from Copain.
