Label Notes: Marie and Vincent Tricot named this Chardonnay 'Escargot' because of the their daughter's sketch of a snail that you see on the label. Marie and Vincent Tricot thought the sketch was appropriate as the first vintage of this wine took a long time to finish.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes are sourced from vines with an average age of 45 years old. Harvest is done manually. The Chardonnay grapes are whole cluster pressed to stainless steel tanks for indigenous yeast fermentation. The wine ages in old barrels and malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. The wine is not fined and not filtered.
Tasting Notes: Escargot has beautiful mineral flavors with some salinity. The mouthfeel is round, rich and juicy.
