'Oeuf de Béton' 2017 Chardonnay Futures
Last year we had a very limited release of our very first concrete egg Chardonnay. Long story short, the wine was stunning and we bought another concrete egg. There were quite a few people who wanted to try the wine but did not get a chance to, so we are offering another chance on futures for the 2017 Vintage.
Futures of the 2017 Chardonnay Bald Mountain Vineyard 'Oeuf de Béton' (Concrete Egg) are now available to our customers. Futures will only be sold in six bottle increments for $40/bottle. We expect the wine to sell out quickly.
New to wine Futures? Futures give you the chance to purchase a wine at a deeply discounted rate before the final wine is bottled giving you the opportunity to stock your wine cellar. We expect this wine to be bottled this summer and available to be picked up in September.
The Oeuf de Béton is a 17 hectoliter concrete egg tank for aging wine. Why the concrete egg tank? Minerality. Chardonnay's most interesting characteristic in the Santa Cruz Mountains is the minerality. Unlike aging in stainless steel, the egg will impart no flavor on the wine, and, will age the wine similarly to a barrel but without any flavors of oak. The purity of fruit and terroir will be striking.
