New York Times' Top Oregon Chards

Earlier this month, The New York Times affirmed what we've been writing about for years: Oregon Chardonnay is serious, because winemakers are taking it seriously on its own terms. Our best Chardonnay winemakers have embraced Oregon's style: we're not California, we're not Burgundy, we are Oregon! 

The Times' Eric Asmimov noted, "
In the best versions, acidity was felt as a sense of liveliness, energy, tension or thrust. It gave the wine momentum and vibrancy, allowing it to refresh, while showing other characteristics like flavors of herbs and flowers or discernible minerality."

The Times' expert panel tasted 20 Oregon Chardonnays; the 3 below were their tops, with 3 stars each. If you've followed our recommendations over the years, you'll recognize Evening Land and Brick House as regular favorites. All 3 come with our seal of approval.
