2019 vintage notes
95 points Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice: "Simply dazzling in every way, this beguiles the taster immediately with a flower-and-pollen honeyed bouquet. The fruit is rich and mouthfilling, with apricot, peach and papaya, pear and melon. There's a vivid streak of butterscotch and impressive grip and power throughout a lingering finish. It's lip-smacking delicious and a wine that is simply impossible not to love at first sniff."
2015 vintage notes
94 points PinotFile: "Others say 'best' or 'reserve,' but Erin says 'Juliette.' A selection of the best barrels of Chardonnay destined for the normal bottling that came from Mahonia Vineyard. Extended lees aging without stirring. This is the Puligny to complement Le Puit Sec’s Chassagne. Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. The nose is stony, flinty and buttery all at once. Seductive flavors of citrus, pear and kiwi with a mineral laden character. Crisp and refreshing, with defining acidity the slightest tannins and an inspired finish of uncommon length. A special wine that demonstrates why people are saying that world class Chardonnay is Oregon’s next big thing.
2014 vintage notes
The Juliette Chardonnay represents a full circle for winemaker Erin Nuccio. When he began making Haden Fig in 2008, his Chardonnay was aged only in stainless steel, with no malo-lactic fermentation. Through process, Erin learned he could make fresh and balanced Chardonnay that retained beautiful acidity while also having the textural enhancement from barrel aging. Now, all Haden Fig Chardonnay is done in barrel; Juliette began as his favorite 3 barrels, picked out a year ago, and aged on lees for extra complexity and texture. He bottled 2.5 barrels (60 cases) of stupifyingly brilliant Chardonnay. If you're wondering whether Oregon Chardonnay is for real, I submit this as proof. - Marcus
