Winemaker Trained by Lafite & Philippe Melka: 2022 Beau Vigne Persuasion Chardonnay Napa Valley

A legendary winemaker. An OUTRAGEOUS discount and a Robert Parker Favorite. If that doesn’t persuade you to get your hands on the wine, what will?

Beau Vigne Winery is a hidden gem in Napa Valley; it produces some extraordinary wines that punch well above their weight. This 2022 Persuasion Chardonnay is a perfect example. Robert Parker raves about the winery, calling Beau Vigne "one of my favorite wineries."

With Julien as the winemaker (Trained by Lafite & Philippe Melka), it’s understandable that the wines are a knockout. He is one of the most highly regarded young winemakers after all. He says: "This is one of the more stunningly opulent, weighty, vinous, and full-bodied Chardonnays we’ve made to date."
