In the summer of 2012, Radio-Coteau acquired a 42-acre Historic Estate Vineyard and ranch on a hill above the town of Occidental. Originally called Joseph Morelli & Sons before Prohibition, the Lemorel Winery (as it later became known) dates back to 1892, when the first vines were planted. The estate is 800 meters and has a very diverse agro-ecosystem established on the prized Goldridge soil. The old Syrah Zinfandel has been preserved and has recently replanted the existing acreage to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This winery is already one of the absolute top in California - Mendocino

The soil and climate of the Savoy vineyard of Radio-Coteau shows many similarities with French Burgundy. This inspired the winegrower to plant Chardonnay to make an impressive wine. Specifically, two varieties are used: 70% Wente and 30% Prosser. The Radio-Coteau Chardonnay Savoy was aged for 15 months in 30% new French oak before being bottled. The wine has a drinking vest of at least 10 years. In the nose clear notes of roasted honey, apple and baked pears, pineapple and tropical notes, fresh cantaloupe. In the mouth the wine is lightly toasted by the oak barrique aging with many fruit elements, sweet spices from the bakery, nuts and almond peel and caramelized lemon. Finished with a richness reminiscent of the smoothness of crème frache in taste and mouthfeel.
