Bonny Doon Description

While Bonny Doon Vineyard began with the (in retrospect) foolish attempt to replicate Burgundy in California, Randall Grahm realized early on that he would have far more success creating more distinctive and original wines working with Rhône varieties in the Central Coast of California. The key learning here (achieved somewhat accidentally but fortuitously) was that in a warm, Mediterranean climate, it is usually blended wines that are most successful. In 1986 Bonny Doon Vineyard released the inaugural vintage (1984) of Le Cigare Volant, an homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and this continues as the winery’s flagship/starship brand.

Winemaker Notes: The 2021 Bonny Doon Le Cigare Blanc offers notes of pineapple, mango and lime. A delicious and refreshing wine.

Blend: 73% Vermentino, 23% Grenache Blanc, 4% Clairette Blanche

Wine Enthusiast: 91 Points

Fairly ripe pear aromas meet with honeydew sorbet on the nose of this blend of 73% Vermentino, 23% Grenache Blanc and 4% Clairette Blanche. The palate is more tightly woven than the nose indicates, with a firm texture and bright acidity framing generous apple and melon flavors.
