Inspired by the iconic white wines of France’s Rhône Valley, Chemin de Fleurs is a classic blend of three varieties—Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Viognier. The 2021 vintage offers tantalizing and vibrant aromas of pineapple, banana, vanilla bean and freshly sliced pear. Spicy notes of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon complement floral notes of honeysuckle and star jasmine along with nuances of green apple, casaba melon and fig. The palate is silky, voluminous and mouthwatering, delivering generous flavors of mango, papaya, pineapple and white peach accented with buttered toast, wet stone, kiwi and ginger. A lovely, lingering finish of vanilla, baking spice, lemon chiffon and honey clover rounds out this exceptional vintage.
The 2021 DAOU Reserve Rosé comes from special Grenache fruit selected by Winemaker Daniel Daou. True to form, this wine displays a lovely pale apricot color in the traditional style of Provençale rosés. An exuberant nose offers tantalizing aromas of peach, watermelon, strawberry, kiwi and toasty oak. Subtle hints of cranberry and rhubarb are accented with rose petal to round out the aroma profile. The palate is rich with flavors of pink grapefruit, Rainier cherry, persimmon and papaya, while underlying notes of tangerine and mango contribute freshness and zest. A remarkably clean finish lingers with lasting notes of peach sorbet, apricot, vanilla bean and strawberry.
The intensely fragrant 2020 DAOU Reserve Chardonnay offers enticing aromas of Asian pear, honeysuckle, Granny Smith apple, smoky oak and warm buttered toast. Hints of pineapple, vanilla cream, hazelnut and ginger round out the luscious nose. A voluptuous, succulent palate displays flavors of lemon meringue pie, pineapple, toasted almonds, and honeydew melon. Subtle notes of nutmeg, baked spiced apples and nectarine unfold along a rich, silky texture. This fleshy, weighty Chardonnay ultimately finishes long and clean, with delightfully lingering flavors of lemon chiffon, tangerine and vanilla bean.
The DAOU virtual tasting videos perfectly capture the experience at DAOU mountain, with Katherine leading you through a thoughtful and fun educational tasting experience. She will take you through the DAOU Summer wine collection, regions of France that inspired Daniel Daou’s winemaking technique, basic wine terminology, family stories, and fun wine making anecdotes.
