Description

This vineyard has hit its stride producing marvellous Chardonnays year after year. One whiff reveals this is obviously Chardonnay made in an old world style. Minerality and reduction from extended lees contact, reminds us of Burgundy. Sweet barrel spice mixes nicely with a lemon limey note. Surprising rich on the palate, classic varietal flavors of apple, citrus and vanilla go on and on. This lively Chardonnay will go with wide assortment of foods. Lobster Pappardelle with chive butter, or fresh corn soufflé with bacon and comté cheese are just a couple of favorites with this wine.

“The 2017 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard is such an elegant wine. Hints of tangerine oil, lemon confit, white flowers, mint and chamomile grace this subtle, beautifully understated Chardonnay. I would give the 2017 another year or two in bottle, as it is a bit tightly wound at this stage. I really like the energy here.” 2021 – 2031 - 94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Aug 2020.
