This wine was balanced, delicate, and demure. An elegant Chardonnay grown on the hillsides of the Montagne de Corton in the Grand Cru appellation of Corton-Charlemagne within the Côte de Beaune region of Burgundy. I would love to pair this with lobster tail or scallops and risotto...

$20.00 for a 94 point from WA👍🏼 review from WA The 2018 Chardonnay Wolff Vineyard from Edna Valley is pure, energetic and fresh this vintage. The nose is lovely, loaded with floral perfume and ripe citrus fruits. The palate is silky and expansive with a shimmering mineral character and a long, pure finish. It improved over the two to three days it was open and will benefit from a long decant. 4,256 cases produced. — 5 days ago
Been a while since I’ve had the 17. Nose of flint, green apples and pears. Beautiful purity and perfect ripeness. Ethereal minerals. Concentrated, dense and salty. Wow. What salinity this has picked up. Awesome purity. Just so structured and pure. AmazIng focus and linearity. Just an epic epic finish. So lean yet so luscious. A contradiction in the best possible ways. Best bottle of this yet. Texture is like icing on a cake. Amazingly saline and mineral and cot damn that finish doesn’t give up! So long. Just an unreal bottle. Reference point. A benchmark. A wine even Mr. Bean will drink. — 4 days ago
Oof that’s good. All nectarine and creme fraiche. Impeccable balance. No butter or wonky barrel issues. For my taste, at this price, up there with the best of California chardonnay. Petaluma Gap. $50 at the winery but you can find it a bit cheaper. Winery Technical Notes: 76 clone, Whole-cluster pressing, 100% native yeast primary fermentation, 100% wild malolactic fermentation, 11 months in low toast, air-dry 3-year-old French oak, 25% new — 2 days ago
Pop and pour. Paired with a medley of roast vegetables: broccoli with olive oil, cayenne and nutritional yeasts, carrots wth cumin and olive oil, and cauliflower with nutritional yeasts and liquid aminos; yes, very vegan again. On the nose: wow, soft noble struck match, lemon oil, sweet apple, lemon, and a soft cooling mint. On the palate: fantastic acidity and density: black and white pepper, lemon, loads of mineral and wet stone, then soft white pepper and bright lemon on the finish. Absolutely lovely. — 18 hours ago
Medium gold color, a bit darker than other white burgundies from the weekend which were a few years older than this bottle. Worrisome nose as it’s got some funky caramel and sherry-like thing going on with it when opened. I think some might call this premox and assume it’s over the hill, but I’ve had some heavily reduced 04 Leflaives which eventually came around with some air. So we gave this 3-4 hours in the decanter, and sure enough, some of the Burgundy expressiveness finally showed up. Notes of tangerine and citrus, river stone, sweet white acacia flowers and some spice. While this evolved with a lot of air to a point where it was enjoyable and very drinkable, there is an issue with some of the 04 Leflaives where they come off as heavily reduced and even with air, they are dissimilar to the best Leflaives. I advise to give bottles like this some time before consumption to see if they work it out. — 11 days ago
