An elegant wine with bright aromatics that tease the nose with tropical scents. An entry on the palate that is crisp and refreshing, offering vibrant honeydew and zest of citrus. We’ve produced this sauvignon blanc to be a true and pure expression of the varietal, with exotic fruits with a long and lingering finish.2016 Azur Classic, Cabernet Sauvignon
The Azur classic cabernet sauvignon is a beautiful expression of the Napa Valley. A mixture of valley floor and mountain fruit blend together to create a pure cabernet. This wine manages to have a depth of flavor while maintaining an aromatic freshness. The variety of vineyard sources highlight bright, red cherry as well as dark hints of cassis to create a diverse combination of flavors which excite the palate.2016 Azur Reserve
The Azur reserve is made in the classic Bordeaux style balanced with the rich fruit offered by the Napa Valley terroir. The grapes are selectively chosen from the hillsides of Napa to highlight concentrated black fruits. Every bottle has a complex combination of blackberry and currant expressions with a refreshing brightness which leads into lingering tannins.

Azur’s inception in 2007 is the product of proprietor Elan Fayard’s vision and dedication to producing terroir specific wines that express the purity and nuance of the vineyards from which the grapes are sourced. Having spent several years in Provence, Elan sought to bring the wine inspiration and influence of her time living in France to Napa. She identified the desire for well-crafted wines that allowed for the characteristics of the land and the language of the fruit to be heard. She combined a focus on harnessing vineyard potential with the abundance of world class fruit available in the Napa Valley and from that Azur was born!Intention
Elan began Azur by introducing one of France’s most elegant wines here in the United States: dry rosé. The Provençal style of rosé was something that American consumers were not familiar with. Elan made it her sole intention to produce quality rosé which reflected the French style she had grown to love. Azur Rosé was the result of her inaugural release in 2007. Utilizing French techniques combined with quality Napa fruit, Elan produces a world class rosé honored as “America’s Best” in Vogue Magazine. With that momentum she began to incorporate limited production red wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon into Azur’s profile. Sourcing fruit from Napa’s most prized vineyards, she also produces an allocated, premium single vineyard label, Empreinte.
