2016 CRU 9 “AS EVER” RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY CHARDONNAY
If you’ve been reading my emails this year, you already know how I feel about Cru 9. It’s absolutely one of the best new discoveries for us this year, and with a quality-to-price ratio that you simply will not believe. The 2016 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is created from a secret vineyard source that also sells to several high-end producers, but due to a non-disclosure agreement, the fruit source needs to be kept secret. One taste, however, will tell you everything you need to know. At under fifty per bottle this wine competes with the best $50 Chardonnays that I’ve tasted.
With just 4 barrels produced, you can almost taste the attention to every minute detail that went into producing this wine. It was aged for 11 months sur lie, a French term meaning literally ‘on the sediment’, the sur lie style plays a large role in contributing to this wine’s rich, opulent texture. Notably Cru 9 also gives back and helps support two nonprofit women shelters, Rudy’s Place in CA and House of Hope in IA. Every time you buy a CRU 9 bottle, you also help level the playing field for survivors of human trafficking, domestic abuse, and homelessness.
