93 points Wine Spectator: "Jasmine and apple aromas lead to elegantly complex flavors that fan out on the long finish. Drink now through 2021."
The Cuvée Lunatique is a fresh and clean Chardonnay that is made in the style of Macon or Chablis. To preserve its bright fruit and crisp structure, it is fermented and matured primarily in stainless steel and larger format neutral barrel and there is no malolactic fermentation. The name came about because when Jay first got the idea to produce a no oak/no malo Chardonnay, some people thought he was a lunatic but its growing popularity in the Portland market proved that he wasn’t so crazy after all.
