"Coming mostly from estate fruit brought up all in tank, the 2016 Chardonnay is a delicious, undeniably quaffable beauty loaded with notions of ripe citrus, lemon, and grapefruit. With no hard edges and a supple, delicious style, it's not going to make old bones but certainly dishes out plenty of pleasure. Drink 2018-2021." (3/2018)
Wine & Spirits
"This is a clean, grape-scented chardonnay, not at all fussy. It could compete with a well-grown Mâcon, mild and soothing, an easy aperitif." (4/2018)
"This crisp, simply fruity wine is light, bright and bursting with lemon and crisp apple flavors. It is direct, full of juicy acidity and ready to drink. (RV)" (12/2017)
"Plump and direct, with a lightly buttered mix of green melon, yellow apple and verbena notes. Offers a gentle-edged finish. (JM)" (12/2017)
"This Chardonnay tastes crisp and bright. It comes from the western Loire Valley, an unexpected place for this Burgundy grape variety, and is made in a fresh, unoaked style, nothing like the famed (and costly) Burgundy crus. Though unconventional, it is delicious, with fruit flavors that echo pears and apples, and an enticing hint of minerality beneath the surface. Pair with grilled lobster, fish with sauce, chicken curry and hard cheeses."
