Saturday night and I have opened the 2012 Copain "Tous Ensemble" Chardonnay from Anderson Valley. A very nice example of an unoaked chardonnay.

On the nose there are apples, pineapple, passionfruit, a touch of fig, lemon balm, pie crust, white flowers and a nice minerality.

On the palate there are citrus notea, lemon, green apple, pear, saline solution, wet flint rock and mineral notes very present.

This wine is medium to full bodied and has a smooth mouth feel with medium + acidity that leads to a clean crisp long lemony finish. Your weekend can be fantastic as long as we all are nice to one another and stay safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

2011 Copaín Chardonnay "Tous Ensemble" Anderson Valley- very pure and authentic; vibrant green apple fruit, superb palate, with tremendous brightness; long, crisp finish, clearly a superior wine! #chardonnay #andersonvalley #wine #wellbalanced

Bright yellow colour. Fresh mineral nose, flowery with rather understated fruit (yellow plums, green apple) and a touch of fresh mint leaves. Subtle touch of used oak. Fresh fruit, vibrant acidity and minerality, not unlike a good Chablis Premier Cru (from a ripe year). Good length. Good value. 2013 vintage. 13,1 % abv. 25 euro ( about 28 $).

Rich. Powerful. Meyer lemon and juicy Gravenstein Apple. Remarkable how an everyday wine is holding up all these years. #chardattack #andersonvalley

Competitive tasting...

Light intensity on the nose, clean and fresh, citrus
Full bodied on the front with amazingly fresh acidity
