Staff Pick Notes

Another incredible value from the talented team at Qupé, whose mission is to make wines with "Quality, Character and Balance”, and couldn’t we all use a bit more of those? This time it’s a classic cool-climate Chardonnay made in a traditional balanced style. Whole cluster pressed, chilled overnight, then right into (20% new) Burgundy barrels for fermentation and a nine-month journey to greatness. Zesty citrus and green apple light up the nose, with just a hint of oak and vanilla, then naturally fresh acidity balances out serious mouth coating satisfaction from aging on the lees. Fun fact, Qupé (pronounced kyoo-pay) is the Chumash Indian word for the California poppy, state flower of the Golden State. And don’t worry about that screw top friends! It will help it stay fresh for days, for a quick glass or a quick deglaze.

It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
