Chardonnay 2 Pack:1 Barrel Select and 1 Private Reserve - Chateau Julien

Chardonnay 2 Pack:1 Barrel Select and 1 Private Reserve - Chateau Julien

Did you know that Chardonnay is the
most planted grape in the world and the most popular wine in the United States?
Monterey County has more Chardonnay planted than any other California county,
with over 16,000 acres! The Thermal Rainbow™ affects our growing region as heat
from the sun forces the warm air to rise and cool air off the ocean moves
through the valley with increasing force as the day progresses. This creates a
slow gentle ripening and creates the perfect conditions for Chardonnay grapes.
If Merlot is King at Chateau Julien then Chardonnay is definitely our

Happy Spring

Happy Spring from Chateau Julien Wine Estate. Why not celebrate with a cold glass of Sangiovese Rosato! Our Rosato is refreshing & semi-dry.  An elegant rose color with a fresh, bright aroma and packed full of berry flavors with crisp apple overtones. Sip this exquisite rosé on a warm, sunny day or pair with a light Sunday brunch with family and friends!

Château Julien’s only rosé wine, Sangiovese Rosato, was produced from grapes solely harvested from the vineyard at the Estate in Carmel Valley, CA. Two acres of the five acre vineyard is thinned specifically for the Rosato, with slightly larger clusters that ultimately result in a lower sugar and higher acidity. Hand harvested, immediately crushed and pressed, this wine is fermented cold to just over 3% residual sugar and held in stainless steel tanks until bottling in the winter.

The Future is Now!

Futures are now available for purchase on our website HERE.
Offer ends at midnight on Feb 15th
limited availability

Wine Future
En primeur or "wine futures" is a method of purchasing wines early while a vintage is still in a barrel, offering the customer the opportunity to invest in a wine before it is bottled.

2012 Private Reserve Merlot
Our Private Reserve Merlot was the original red wine label produced by the winery back in 1982, and is celebrated today as the Estate’s flagship varietal. This wine incorporates only the best Merlot lots from our vineyard partners, aged separately in the highest quality new French oak barrels until finalizing the optimum blend prior to bottling.

2013 Private Reserve 'Sur Lie' ChardonnaySur is the French word for “on” and lie is their spelling for lees, the sediment that settles to the bottom of the carboy during and after fermentation. Winemaker Bill Anderson has perfected this technique giving our Chardonnay a creamy, toasty character with added complexity.
