Opened a few fun bottles to celebrate my birthday this past weekend. Cheers to 31!
Pale yellow in the glass. Fruit is very bright...lemon, underripe peach, and limestone aromatics. Quite strong acidity upfront...reminiscent of a nice Chablis. Because of the structure and acidity, I think this is best enjoyed slightly warmer than cellar temp. It rounds things out. Definitely not an overoaked Chardonnay, but just a kiss of it to keep it from being racy. Lemon zest and caramelized green apple highlight the finish. I’d have no problem holding these another year or two, but great now if warmed up slightly. — 3 days ago
Light bodied but great structure and complexity. Holding up phenomenally against tagine and Moroccan spiced food at NOPA. Lovely!! — 6 days ago
After a bad string of premoxed burg is refreshing to remind yourself what aged Chablis should taste like and why it’s worth holding on to the stuff — 4 days ago
I don’t know if 2011 was a good vintage in Russian River AVA but this is holding super great. — 5 days ago
Holding up well for 1970! — a month ago
