Carneros Hills 2012 Chardenet Coteau Blanc boasts rich, creamy flavors of lemon and vanilla


Carneros Hills Winery 2012 Chardenet Coteau Blanc
Carneros, California

With vineyards dating back to the 1880s, Carneros is one of California's oldest wine-growing areas. Carneros Hills Winery opened relatively recently — in 2013 — on the site of the historic Buena Vista Winery. Chardenet Coteau Blanc has a nose of fresh apple, lemon zest and toasted oak, followed by rich, creamy textures of ripe citrus and vanilla on the palate.

Catch of the day: Lightly cooked crab tastes delectable with this rich Chardenet.

Rating: 14.5/20

Price: $45
