2009 J. Schram in Gift Box (1 x 750 ML)
Cluster samples from around 115 cool-climate vineyard sources are pulled several times before the optimal pick date for each block is selected. Complexity within the wine is gained through both oak barrel and stainless steel tank fermentation. Additional layers are provided through small lots that undergo malolactic fermentation, enriching aromas and infusing creaminess on the palate. Our J. Schram is aged for over seven years on the yeast in Schramsbergs historic Diamond Mountain caves; each bottle is then riddled by hand, and finished with an exceptional brut dosage.
J. Schram is quite appealing on its own as an apéritif or enjoyed with fresh shellfish, caviar on toast point, smoked salmon, tangy and sharp cheeses, seafood brochettes, cedar-planked lobster, mesquite-grilled quail, or Serrano ham & porcini risotto.
The 2009 J. Schram opens with bright aromas of pear, pineapple and apricot, followed by nuances of custard, peach cobbler, and almond. The elegant palate features fruitful elements of apple, melon, papaya and lemon verbena. The persistent finish is driven by generous and bright acidity.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
Reviews97 Points - Cellar Selection
Enticing aromas of toasted almond and pear tart lead to an equally seductive and complex palate that is dry but rich in feel. It has the complexity and layering of a wine aged a long time on the yeast, and shows excellent concentration that leads to a long, lingering finish. This is Schramsberg's top-of-theline Chardonnay-based wine and it definitely lives up to its billing in this vintage.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2018)
Dynamic and polished, with expressive Meyer lemon and cinnamon nut roll aromas and plush and luxurious baked apple and fresh ginger flavors that glide on a long finish.- Wine Spectator (October 2018)
