  Montdomaine Chardonnay
Montdomaine 2009 Chardonnay, released in the spring of 2010, comes from old vines. The vineyard is, in fact, the oldest continuously producing vinifera vineyard in the Monticello AVA. Utilizing old French Oak cooperage, the oaking is minimal, allowing interesting citrus effects. May we quote the elegant Jefferson Hotel in Richmond: "The Montdomaine Chardonnay is a single-vineyard wine crafted by Virginia's foremost winemaker, Michael Shaps. It shows Virginia's wine industry is among the country's best in producing classic European varietals."
  Montdomaine Grande Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Just bottled and offered only as a "pre released" wine, the 2009 Montdomaine Grande Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is made in Grand Cru style with over a week on skins and aging in new French Oak. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, Monticello AVA. This wine will outlive us all.
  Montdomaine Merlot
The 2008 Montdomaine Merlot represents the re-appearance of the celebrated Mondomaine brand after an absence of over 15 years. The wine is composed of 80% old-vine Merlot and 20% old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon. The style chosen was an accessible "minimalist" style. It has an exceptional bouquet with a finish of herbs, dried cherries and chocolate nuances.
  Montdomaine Viognier
Our Montdomaine 2008 Viognier was produced from exceptionally ripe grapes. On presentation, one is struck by the intensity of its bouquet. It fairly leaps out of the glass! A fresh, floral, and slightly citric flavor develops in mid-tasting. But it is in the finish that this wine really takes flight. We think the wine shows nuances of apricot. A very exceptional white wine.
