About the Wine

"This is one of the more stunningly opulent, weighty, vinous, and full-bodied Chardonnays we’ve made to date."  

Beau Vigne flies under the radar as a “hidden gem” and small boutique winery producing only a few thousand cases a year. Fans and critics alike flock to the winery for its outstanding wines and genuine hospitality including famed critic Robert Parker who refers to Beau Vigne as “one of my favorite wineries.” 

Behind Persuasion is renowned winemaker Julien Fayard. He uses his expertise to produce wines that express pure, terroir-driven specificities and characteristics. Julien gained his knowledge and defined his core winemaking style from working at grand Chateaux in France such as Lafite Rothschild and Smith Haut Lafitte.

Embracing his father's creed of "making wine in the vineyard" and following in his grandfather's footsteps, Kirk was raised amidst the fertile Napa Valley soils, where his love for winemaking took root.  With years of schooling, decades of training, and generations of family farming experience in Napa Valley, Kirk's journey culminated in the founding of Venge Vineyards in 1999 and the collaboration with vineyards and cellars that seek to raise their wine to new heights. Kirk was the mastermind behind Beau Vigne’s wines from 2008 to 2018.

Beau Vigne’s wines are highly esteemed and cherished among some of the world’s most important winemakers, and they have achieved numerous high-accolades. Today, they are considered among Napa Valley’s most acclaimed wines. 

Aging: 8 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. A captivating expression of ripe orchard fruits, vanilla, and toasted oak on the nose, leading to a palate rich with golden apple, pear, and delicate caramel notes. This exquisite elixir embodies the essence of Napa Valley's terroir and winemaking finesse, promising a luxurious and unforgettable experience with every sip.
