Oregon Chardonnay Benchmarks: Eyrie, Cameron

Oregon Chardonnay is hot right now. Call it a renaissance, call it a boom -- either way we've seen prices soar to mirror those of premium Oregon Pinots. 

Enter Eyrie and Cameron, wineries who've made Chardonnay long before it was cool. These estate-grown Chardonnays serve as the benchmark for quality and price. 

Eyrie Estate Chardonnay 2015

$24.25 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($26.95 regular) 

Eyrie is the godfather of Oregon wine. The first to plant Pinot noir in the Willamette Valley, the first to plant Pinot gris in North America, the first to show the world Oregon Chardonnay's aging prowess. Not that you should age the 2015 Chardonnay, because it is drinking beautifully. I opened it last night and had to practice major restraint not to finish the bottle. Fresh citrus and pear flavors, sublime texture, a quiet mineral pulse. Stunning. 

Eyrie's contribution to Oregon Chardonnay is vast and cannot be overstated. From my perspective, Eyrie's revelatory 30-year vertical tasting of their Chardonnays (which I was very fortunate to attend) was a major catalyst for the Oregon Chard renaissance. - Marcus  

Cameron Dundee Hills Chardonay 2015

$17.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($19.95 regular)  

The best value American Chardonnay. Ahhh...feels better to have written that. That we have access to this wine at a give-away price is a testament to what is right in Oregon wine. With 2015 you get the best vintage of Dundee Hills Chardonnay in several! Every time I think about this wine, my mouth waters. Bright citrus, subtle Provencal herbs, delicious Chardonnay. This stuff is so good you could have a glass for breakfast. Entirely from Abbey Ridge and Clos Electrique Vineyards. - Marcus
