The 2021 My Favorite Neighbor Chardonnay bursts from the glass with aromas of Meyer lemon, yellow apple, Asian pear and just a hint of pineapple. Underneath the fruit lies complex base notes of flint, vanilla, nutmeg, and cardamom. Surrounding all these aromas is an open sensation of freshness, like a wave crashing upon the shore. That saline component is mirrored on the palate, complemented by juicy, mouthwatering acidity and a long mineral finish. Rounding out the palate are flavors of crème fraiche and toffee offering balance and the desire for just one more sip. 

A homage to Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure Winery became an obsession for Eric Jensen. Stephan is a close friend and mentor to Eric. For the entire first year they were friends, each time Stephan called he would refer to himself as Eric’s “favorite neighbor”, as if there was any doubt about who would be calling with such a thick French accent! The title was a self-fulfilling prophecy and in 2006 Eric crafted a Cabernet-based wine to honor his friend Stephan and his Bordeaux roots. 

Sourced from exceptional vineyard sites around Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and south to Edna Valley, this wine is cultivated meticulously by the farmers who have become his favorite neighbors. With their dedication to the land, Jensen is able to craft a world class wine without any shortcuts or compromises. 2019’s abundant winter rain and a long, moderate growing season allowed for extended hang times and exceptional fruit quality

The 2021 MFN Blanc Chardonnay is very ripe in style with scents of banana chip, apple pie, jasmine, allspice and brown sugar. The full-bodied palate is packed with ripe, spicy fruits and plenty of refreshing acidity, and it finishes long with a satiny, mouth-coating texture. It's an old-school style reminiscent of Napa that fans of ripe, oaked Chardonnays will enjoy.
