Chenin Blanc 2020, Beau Rivage
Beau Rivage Cellars is a small production California wine dedicated to producing classically balanced wines using traditional, artisanal techniques.Chenin Blanc from Clarksburg, California, made by wine critic and Noble Rot contributor William Kelley.
"2018 is definitely our raciest, finest-boned vintage. It's only 11.4 per cent alcohol. 2019 is a short crop, 50% of a usual year, so we have less volume, and it's richer and more concentrated wine which I like a lot. 2020 is happily the best to date and a full crop. I'm too excited about how good it is."
Producer William Kelley and Frank Ingriselli
