Napa winery, Hyde de Villaine, is making a name for itself by producing limited amounts of top end Californian Chardonnay made with a Burgundian philosophy – hard to imagine any other mindset when the director of winemaking is Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Peter Dean digs out the whole story, tastes old and new vintages as well as tries the first Pinot Noir the winery was ‘allowed to make’. TASTING 2015 vintage - The 2015 de la Guerra is bright and energetic, with a distinctly mineral nose of crushed stone entwined with apple blossom, citrus zest and fresh almond. The palate is focused with flavors of ripe Bartlett pear, peach, lemon curd and the hallmark minerality of Hyde Vineyard.
