Bodyguard Chardonnay is a tribute to Marie Daou, who was a beacon of strength during hard times. She led her family through war and darkness and shone with a grace within chaos. In her honor, we have partnered with women around the globe who also exemplify this same strength and grace.
DAOU has partnered with Sevya Fair Trade to create a custom Bodyguard Chardonnay scarf. Sevya employs women embroidery artisans in Northern India who do hand-embroidery in their own homes. This flexibility enables the women to earn a sustainable livelihood from their craft while also caring for their families. This beautiful scarf is made from Cupro, an eco-friendly, handmade piece of art that has the look and feel of silk yet is breathable and easy to wash.
The Bodyguard Chardonnay embodies the quintessential style of a California chardonnay - ripe fruit, vanilla-laced oak notes and an all around rich and buttery mouthfeel. The warmer climate of California provides a deeper golden color, aromas of vanilla, cinnamon and coconut, and the flavors can range from mango and banana to butter and cream. The Chardonnay grape truly reflects where it is grown and as such the terroir expresses itself very accurately in the glass. The Bodyguard Chardonnay uses grapes from the famous Santa Barbara appellation that benefits from the proximity of Pacific Ocean. Cold fermentations are performed to maintain the aromatic precursors with a combination of French and American oak to deliver a creamy and buttery mouthfeel.
