Review:

The Cuvee Lunatique is Jay Somers’ nod to the racier, more focused side of Chardonnay; it sees no oak and undergoes no malolactic fermentation (this can turn a wine overly soft). Instead, this one leaps from the glass with lemon and green apple aromas that are immediately captivating in their purity.

On the palate it is decisive, not hesitating for a moment before delivering an electric range of ripe citrus and wet stone-like minerality. Juicy but still very vivid, this stuff stands heads and shoulders above most. - Jean

The J. Christopher Chardonnay "Cuvee Lunatique" is the perfect glass of wine with a dinner salad made with sliced fennel, avocado, grilled chicken and mixed baby greens.

Excellent winemaker Jay Somers makes small amounts of white wines from Oregon fruit, in a Burgundian style.
