"Racines is a single wine brand created by some of the finest hands of the winemaking world - we are talking Burgundy royalty teaming up with California genius. Etienne de Montille, proprietor of iconic Burgundy estate Domaine de Montille founded in the 17th century, and his Chef de Cave, Brian Sieve, have collaborated with Rodolphe Péters of cult Champagne house Champagne Péters and renowned, hugely in demand winemaker Justin Willett of Santa Barbara AVA, USA with a shared vision to create some of the most exceptional wines in the world from the finest vineyards in the land, stunning vineyards which are hugely in demand with the most savvy and ambitious winemakers.
This is a blend of chardonnay from different sites in the Santa Rita Hills, the majority coming from the Wenzlau Vineyard. Here the collaborators have a long-term lease and farm the vineyard ourselves using organic practices. Wenzlau sits on a steep, dramatic hillside across the Santa Ynez River river from the famed Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. In the cellar the wine is a combination of barrel and tank fermentation using native yeast. This is a wine that best represents the potential of the region as a whole.
VINOUS - 92 pts. "The 2017 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is a blend taken from Wenzlau, Bentrock and Sanford & Benedict. Creamy, open-knit and inviting, the 2017 is incredibly delicious. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and light tropical notes grace this subtle, gorgeous appellation-level wine from De Montille." - Antonio Galloni"
