Chloe is traditionally the broadest, richest Chardonnay in DuMOL’s classic collection – a true California girl, born and bred. The intrinsic power and resonance come straight from the low yielding old vines planted in shallow marine soils. The thick-skinned grapes are pressed extra slow, to squeeze out every last drop of flavor and intensity. A feast-friendly Chardonnay to enjoy year-round, not just in warm months, avoid over-chilling this when you serve it to your guests.

The 2019 Chardonnay Chloe comes from the Russian River, yet it shows an almost Sonoma Coast-like vibrancy and minerality. Deep stone fruits, brioche, honeysuckle, and flower oil notes all define the nose, and it's beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied, and incredibly textured, with a drop-dead gorgeous finish. This is another incredible Chardonnay from this estate that ranks with the crème de la creme of the vintage.
