Point Rouge Barrel Selection Cuvée Translated from the French: red dot

Point Rouge
Estate Chardonnay

Point Rouge and Cuvée Indigène are barrel selections drawn from our four estate Chardonnay vineyards, delivering an expression of excellence that celebrates the skill of the winemaker and surpasses the notion of terroir. They are the only wines in our portfolio that are not vineyard-specific, harkening back to our early days as winemakers. We only produce these wines in vintages that show the exceptional potential required.

The blend for Point Rouge is chosen from the top barrels of each vintage with an eye towards long-term aging. Five years or more in the bottle reveal a broad pallet of fruit and mineral flavors with white truffle notes on the finish. Point Rouge was named for the red stickers that our first winemaker, Helen Turley, used to mark the very best barrels in the cellar.
