Jeanne Marie Chardonnay is a beautiful California Chardonnay with a beautiful label! David Gordon has been the wine director at Tribeca Grill, the famed New York City restaurant, since it opened in 1990. Owned by restaurateur Drew Nieporent and actor Robert DeNiro, Tribeca Grill features a dynamic wine program with a list of over 1800 selections and is a Grand Award winner from the Wine Spectator. David created the Jeanne Marie label (named after his wife) to offer great value California wine by utilizing the many contacts he has in Napa, Sonoma and the Central Coast to source the finest grapes available. Producers such as Caymus, Lewis Cellars and Miner Family provided grapes and helped with the winemaking for earlier cuvees. The wineries that are currently used wish to remain anonymous, but the quality has remained very high. These are delicious everyday wines to enjoy at home or by the glass at restaurants.
Jeanne Marie Chardonnay is 100% Central Coast fruit, 80% stainless steel, 20% barrel fermented. The wine aged 10 months in oak barrels. It is medium-full-bodied with balanced flavors of vanilla, orange blossom, pear and apple. Toasty oak adds to the long, silky finish.
Enjoy Jeanne Marie Chardonnay with salmon, pan-roasted chicken, mushroom dishes, and shrimp off the grill.
