Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay? Make the switch to JL WOOD.

Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay? Make the switch to JL WOOD.

There are a fair number of you drinking Sauvignon Blanc. In fact, many tell us that it is their go-to when we offer a tasting of our wine. We appreciate that loyalty but want to convince you to make the switch to JL WOOD.

Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent type of wine. Moving from Sauvignon Blanc to JL WOOD Chardonnay offers a dedicated wine drinker a new world of taste experiences and sensory delights:

  1. Richness and Complexity: While Sauvignon Blanc is known for its crispness and vibrant acidity, Chardonnay offers a different spectrum of flavors. JL WOOD Chardonnays, in particular, present a richer and more complex set of taste profiles. Our Nouveau, No oak, and JL wines feature floral notes and hints of apple, tropical fruits, and lemon drop with a naturally balanced acidity. Our Premiers are also complemented by nuances of vanilla, butter, and toasted oak derived from oak barrel aging. The austere clarity of flavors in our wines provide a more satisfying drinking experience for those seeking sophistication with complexity.

  2. VersatilityWhether enjoyed on their own as a standalone wine or paired with a wide array of foods ranging from seafood and poultry to creamy pasta dishes and cheeses, our Chardonnays offer a flexibility and adaptability that Sauvignon Blanc may not always provide. We craft our wines in various styles ranging from crisp and un-oaked to smooth and full-bodied. This versatility means that there's a JL WOOD Chardonnay to suit every occasion and palate preference.  

  3. Elegance and Sophistication: Made to compete with the best wines of Chablis and Burgundy, we take pride in our attention to detail in the grape growing and winemaking processes. From their beautifully balanced flavors to their silky smooth textures, JL WOOD Chardonnays are sure to impress even the most discerning wine connoisseurs. And our many awards are proof. Our wines stand-out because we make our wines in small lots, allowing us to select those with the best attributes for bottling.

  4. Exploration of New Tastes: Switching to JL WOOD Chardonnays provide opportunities for Sauvignon Blanc drinkers to expand their palate and embark on a journey of discovery.

And we are very gratified when, after tasting JL WOOD, Sauvignon Blanc drinkers tell us that they would drink our wines in the future. 

“I don’t like traditional Chardonnay, but I like this!”
