Tasting Notes

The Well Born Chardonnay 2018 is bright, focused and well-balanced. Lemon peel, almond, slate, white flowers and white pepper give it stunning personality. While young and showing a touch of gun flint that I associate with great burgundy, this wine blossoms with 30 minutes in a decanter. It is a wonderful example of a classically restrained, mid-weight Chardonnay. I very much like the sense of purity here.

The Producer

Bien Nacido Estate

One of the oldest cool-climate vineyards in California and home of the world’s most single vineyard designations, Bien Nacido Vineyard has been an acclaimed source of world-glass grapes and estate wine since its founding in 1973 by brothers Stephen and Bob Miller.

Meaning ‘well born’ in Spanish, Bien Nacido was planted on the historic site of the Rancho Tepusquet land grant, a plot of land that was granted to Tomás Olivera in 1837, when California was still a part of Mexico. The Olivera Family’s adobe, built in 1857, still graces the estate today.

Purchased by the Miller Family in 1969, what is now Bien Nacido Vineyard began as the shared vision of brothers Bob and Steve Miller - to develop a vineyard that would be acknowledged as among the elite vineyards of the world. Four years of hard work led to the original vineyard plantings – 300 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since then, under the Miller Family’s stewardship, Bien Nacido Vineyard has become one of the most coveted sources of cool-climate Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah in California.
