Beaulieu Vineyard Chardonnay Coastal Estates 2011 750ml

Beaulieu Vineyard Chardonnay Coastal Estates

Yellow-gold color. Strong, fresh apple-citrus aromas with a hint of vanilla. Medium full- bodied, with creamy texture and round, succulent, juicy flavors, this vintage reveals ripe apple fruit combined with hints of green almond and pear in the finish. Moderate acidity heightens the wine's approachable softness.

BV Coastal Estates wines come from select vineyards along California's Central Coast, where diverse conditions enable the winery to source each wine from a site where it develops its most intense varietal character. They then enhance this intensity in the winery with carefully chosen winemaking methods, for wines of high quality expression at an exceptional value.

When Georges de Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, he joined the ranks of northern California's early winemaking pioneers, including Augustin Haraszthy, Charles Krug, Gutave Neibaum, H.W. Crabb, Jacob Beringer and George Yount.

Just as the nascent wine industry began to thrive, however, it took some hard knocks from the Great Depression and the first infestation of Phylloxera. And when Prohibition became the law of the land, in 1919, most wineries were forced to cease production. Beaulieu Vineyard, however, not only remained open, but increased its business fourfold as de Latour produced sacramental wine.

In 1938, de Latour traveled to France and returned with famed viticulturist and winemaker André Tchelistcheff, who is widely considered to have initiated Napa Valley into the wonders of modern winemaking. Tchelistcheff-or "the Maestro" as he came to be affectionately called-introduced such industry-wide standards as cold fermentation for white wines, malolactic fermentation for red wines and the aging of red wines in small, French oak barrels. His work at Beaulieu Vineyard and his guidance throughout the valley as a consultant contributed more to the quality of California wine than any other individual.

Ideal with fresh Dungeness crab, soft cheeses like Camembert and roast halibut steaks.

Why does the 2011 BV Costal cost $7.97 and the 2010 BV is $10.99?
