L'Ecole No. 41 2007 Chardonnay and Semillon

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

L’Ecole No. 41 is one of the premier Washington wineries and boasts something few other state wineries can – a twenty-five year track record.

Last month saw the release of two white wines from L’Ecole, the 2007 Semillon - one of the wines L’Ecole is best known for – and the 2007 Chardonnay.

L’Ecole’s 2006 Recess Red will be the subject of our virtual tasting on Monday August 18th.

L’Ecole No. 41 Semillon Columbia Valley 2007

Nut aromas stand out on the nose. A crisp tartness marked by lemon on the taste. 90% Semillon; 10% Sauvignon Blanc. 14.3% alcohol. 4,680 cases produced.

L’Ecole No. 41 Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2007

Toasted oak notes, nut, and mineral on the nose. The wine has a nice weight to it. Overall, a very good effort, although the oak gets ever so slightly in the way at times for my taste. 100% Chardonnay (52% Schmitt Vineyard; 36% Evergreen and 12% Bacchus vineyards).

$20
