Winemaker François Cordesse Notes
In Bennett Valley we can judge what kind of winter we are going to have on November 1st. If we don’t have rain it will be a dry winter which was the case in 2007. Spring and summer followed this trend with warm weather and low humidity that resulted in only a small percentage botrytis in our Chardonnay grapes. e caramel aromas which are usually imparted through botrytis were achieved in 2007 by using a high toast level in our French oak barrels.
