Chanin was named Top 100 Wineries in the world by Wine & Spirits Magazine!


2017 ‘Los Alamos Vineyard’ Chardonnay (Best Buy)93 Points ‘Years Best’

Grown in the sandy soils of Los Alamos, this has a comfortable, effortless feel, from its nutty spiced-apple scent to the mildly oak-driven flavors of caramelized pear.  It’s minerally, layered and precise, with a linear acidity that draws the wine to a tart and detailed finish. – P.J.C

2017 ‘Bien Nacido Vineyard’ Chardonnay91 Points ‘Years Best’

This is impressively lean and leesy when first poured, with a terse lemon-lime aroma and tight, tart flavors.  It has impressive energy and a succulence that hints at the lemony sun that peeks out from the morning fog and should get even better with bottle age. – P.J.C.

2017 ‘Sanford & Benedict Vineyard’ Chardonnay94 Points ‘Years Best’

A complex old-vine chardonnay, this delivers a litany of flavors with spritzy precision: white flowers and sea air, lime, salt, fennel frond and white peach, jasmine, acacia and smoke, to name just a few.  They yield to a finish that’s soft, yellow and creamy, like lemon curd and diatomaceous earth, and like the light at Sanford & Benedict when the fog lifts, around noon. – P.J.C
