The 2014 growing season that produced such stunning pinot noirs in our vineyards performed no less a miracle in our chardonnay vineyards. The two Dijon clones 76 and 96 that grow side- by- side in our vineyards melded into a truly extraordinary chardonnay after 10 months in new French oak barrels. A tour de force of tropical fruit and spice flavors, we believe our 2014 Enchanteuse will be a landmark Oregon chardonnay — a wine for true chardonnay connoisseurs everywhere. 45 cases produced. $125

The somewhat warmer 2015 growing season provided our Dijon Clone 76 and 96 vines with extra energy that enabled our vines to produce chardonnay grapes of stunning flavor and intensity. Even a few weeks in barrel produced a wonderful wine of extraordinary chardonnay flavors and body. We believe our 2015 Enchanteuse will establish a new benchmark for chardonnay from Oregon – a powerful Bourgogne-style chardonnay with remarkable breadth of flavors and a perfect balance of fruit and structure. 50 cases were produced. $125
