“What a bright addition to the wines from Beaux Freres co-founder Mike Etzel. This Chardonnay from the Sequitur Vineyard that runs congruous to the Beaux Freres Upper Terraces is brimming with key lime pie, fresh green apple and flinty minerality, leading to a well-balanced palate of baked pears, toasted coconut, and a zippy fresh lemon finish.  Refreshing and perfect for warm weather sipping, this is the type of Chardonnay where domestic lovers and Franco-files can unite.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
Sequitur is the private project of the founder of Beaux Freres, which is famously co-owned by Robert Parker. Beaux Freres was rated higher than any other Oregon Pinot Noir by Wine Spectator, and was ranked the #1 Pinot in America from the 2016 “Wine of the Year” issue. The Sequiter vineyard is planted continuously to Beaux Freres Upper Terraces property in the Ribbon Ridge sub-appellation of Willamette Valley.
