We use several different vineyards for our Chardonnay as our production has become sizeable through the years. It seems that every vintage, we add at least one vineyard while sometimes relinquishing a previous site. By sourcing from many terroirs, some cool and some warmer sites, we are able to consistently produce the flagship, award-winning Chardonnay we are so famous for.
At Forgeron Cellars, we are so excited that our 2006 Chardonnay is the closest we have ever come to a traditional Burgundy! Assertive aromas of green apple and peach lead to a mouthful of dense and creamy flavors. Layered and full bodied, yet fresh with pear, citrus and mineral notes outlining its fruity character. This wine is very satisfying from start to finish, built in the Forgeron Cellars tradition.
For the ultimate experience, this longs to be enjoyed with some delicious seafood. Try our 2006 Chardonnay with delectable coconut prawns, seafood fettucini with halibut, scallops and clams or something as simple as a rich bowl of clam chowder and crusty bread. Just make sure you have plenty of this Chardonnay on hand. It’s so tasty, you will want another glass or two!
