Wine Description

The 2022 Teeter-Totter Chardonnay, crafted by the esteemed winemaker Benoit Touquette, is a wine that embodies the perfect balance between sophistication and playfulness. From the first delightful pop of the cork, this Chardonnay exudes effortless grace, a testament to the winemaker’s expertise in producing high-quality wines.

In the glass, the wine displays a radiant, golden hue, hinting at the intensely flavored fruit that awaits. On the nose, the aromas are enchanting, with pronounced notes of ripe lemon, apricot, and luscious white peach mingling harmoniously with seductive undertones of toast, honey, and brioche. These rich scents promise a tantalizing experience for the palate.

Upon tasting, the 2022 Teeter-Totter Chardonnay lives up to its reputation. It showcases the pure, bright, and powerful fruit character that has become synonymous with this label. The initial burst of citrus and stone fruit is complemented by a delightful interplay of oak-derived flavors, where subtle hints of vanilla and a touch of baking spices add depth and complexity. The wine’s judicious aging in 50% new French Oak and 50% stainless steel strikes a perfect balance, allowing the fruit to shine while contributing a gentle creaminess to the texture.

One of the standout features of this vintage is its stunning minerality, a unique quality that sets it apart from previous releases. The minerality provides a captivating backbone to the wine, enhancing its overall structure and giving it an elegant finesse.

On the palate, the Teeter-Totter Chardonnay reveals its full-bodied character, showcasing a velvety smoothness that glides across the tongue. The wine’s impeccable balance of fruit, oak, and acidity leads to a prolonged, satisfying finish that lingers long after each sip.

With just 1,250 cases produced, the 2022 Teeter-Totter Chardonnay is a limited-edition treasure from the Napa Valley, making it a wine to cherish and enjoy on special occasions or to elevate any moment into something extraordinary. So, uncork a bottle of this playful masterpiece and experience the charm and accessibility that Teeter-Totter wines are renowned for. Cheers to Benoit Touquette’s artistry and his dedication to creating wines that bring joy and delight to every wine lover’s heart.

  1. Michael Littlewood

    Amazing Chardonnay. Generous fruit presence, fine toast, and long mineral finish. Deft and complex. Best <$40 Chardonnay. Bravo Mr. Toquette.

  2. Lloyd Manning

    Agree with @jviz, this Chardonnay is subtle yet complex. The absence of buttery card flavor is refreshing. Well done!

  3. Jennie Howry

    Consistent notes, tropical profile. Possible white Rhône varietals. Special wine.

  4. Dennis Hansen

    Consistent with past bottles, great value and hints of Rhône varietal.

  5. Aaron Carbajal

    New chardonnay discovery! Elegant, well-balanced with golden color and tropical fruit aromas. Mango and melon on the palette, with a touch of oak and nut. Exceptional experience, must try!

  6. Gene Jayne

    Consistent and low variation. A stellar Chardonnay at its price.

  7. Dorothy Evans

    Chardonnay lovers, this is the one for you. Similar to the 2015, it’s broad and tropical with hints of honey and oak, but the alcohol is higher. Hold for 6 months and drink within 3-4 years.

  8. Gerda Lybbert

    Reliable every time.

  9. Sam Anderson

    Deliciously tropical wine with prominent ripe pineapple, mango, and a hint of vanilla. Bright palate with perfect balance of sweetness and fruit acidity. However, it loses its balance on day 2 with an increased acidity level.

  10. Susan Flanagan

    Fresh and full-flavored Chardonnay without oak.

  11. Patricia Taylor

    Balanced Chardonnay with light oak and citrus notes. Medium finish.

  12. Birdie Getty

    Perfect for brunch: pairs well with chicken sausage, hot pepper frittata, and cronuts.

  13. Mark Priolo

    “Best of the 6, hold on. Will buy more 2017s.”

  14. William Cooper

    “Balanced and zippy Cali Chardonnay. Great value.”

  15. Willie Remy

    2017 lacks the round tropical notes of 2015 or 2016. It’s leaner like 2015 Fait Main Toyon Chard. Still good, but needs 6 months to mellow.

  16. Joseph Dinsmore

    Good weight and form with tropical notes of mango and pineapple. No overpowering malo, making it a quaffable and acidic choice. Our go-to house chardonnay.

  17. Georgina Whitman

    Balanced acidity with a ripe, fruit-driven taste. Perfect for those who love a firmly Californian style without the buttery/malo taste.

  18. Rosann Carlton

    Improved on day 2, tropical taste. Our go-to white.

  19. Dolores Chafin

    Pairs perfectly with pork chops and lemon garlic asparagus, with slight notes of lemon and oak.

  20. Scottie Solomon

    Chardonnay lovers will enjoy this house wine with its tropical fruit notes and balanced acidity, without the heavy buttery finish.

  21. Warner Geer

    Acidic with tropical notes, not buttery.

  22. Derek Roddam

    Top bottle, stocking up on next vintage.

  23. Ronald Henke


  24. Mark Pierce

    Past peak, drink up! Dominated by butter cream icing.
