2016 Copain "Tous Ensemble" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (Elsewhere $25)

SKU #1351053 Jeb Dunnuck

 Made from 100% Chardonnay, the 2016 Chardonnay Tous Ensemble is a juicy, clean, crisp expression of Chardonnay. From the Cloud Landing and Carneros Hills West vineyards, its classic bouquet of lemon curd, rose petal, salty minerality, and earth all give way to a medium-bodied, fresh, lively, Chablis look-alike that will drink nicely for 3-4 years.  (6/2018)

Vinous

 The 2016 Chardonnay Tous Ensemble is delicate and understated, with lovely orchard fruit and floral character. This is an attractive, entry-level Chardonnay from Copain. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later given its mid-weight structure. (AG)  (4/2018)

K&L Notes

From the winery: "Perched on a hillside overlooking the bucolic Russian River Valley, Copain specializes in vineyard designate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Founded in 1999, Copain, meaning ‘friend’ or ‘buddy’ in French, embodies our philosophy that wine enhances life’s most joyous occasions, and is an experience best shared with friends and family. Sourced from cool climate vineyards in Mendocino County, the Anderson Valley and the Sonoma Coast, the Copain portfolio consists of three distinct collections—Tous Ensemble, Les Voisins, and the vineyard designate wines. Founder and winemaker Wells Guthrie has long been inspired by the wines of France’s Rhône Valley and apprenticed with renowned vigneron, Michel Chapoutier in 1996; Guthrie describes himself as a 'California winemaker with a European sensibility…' and the resulting restrained, elegant wines have become Copain’s signature style."

Aww so fresh and so clean! The 2016 “Tous Ensemble” Sonoma Coast Chardonnay delivers a snappy, juicy and vibrant experience that will surely make any chardonnay lover happy. Tous Ensemble refers to a classic blend of fruit sourced from select vineyards throughout Mendocino County. The Tous Ensemble goes through full malolactic fermentation but isn’t buttery or creamy in the slightest. Pretty aromatics of jasmine, white blossom, hazelnuts and lemon zest mix with lively acidity. Overall this a great food friendly chardonnay that will get the party moving in the early hours..
