Enroute Chardonnay Les Brumeux 2012 750ml

Enroute Chardonnay Les Brumeux

2012 marks the inaugural vintage of EnRoute Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, ”Les Brumeux” (brew-muh). The wine is named for the fog that gently envelops the vineyards in Russian River Valley, creating the perfect climate to nurture our fruit to ideal ripeness. A discrete group of select clones and growing areas combine to produce the Les Brumeux blend. The Wente clone benefits from the warmth of the northernmost vineyard along Westside Road and contributes an oily texture and tropical notes. The Rued clone, grown in the cool climate of Green Valley, brings beautiful perfume and floral notes to the wine. The Heritage clone provides notes of pear and citrus from a vineyard cultivated in the Goldridge sandy loam along Vine Hill Road in Sebastopol.

EnRoute was founded by a family of partners that has been growing and making wine for nearly 30 years. The Nickel family, including Beth Nickel, Erik Nickel and Jeremy Nickel, together with Dirk Hampson and Larry Maguire, jointly own sister wineries Far Niente, Dolce and Nickel & Nickel. Their journey to find the best place to make the Pinot Noir of their dreams culminates at last in EnRoute: Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
