This is my first and only 17 of this event and it’s beautiful.
The body is thick, rich, and a shade waxy. Green & golden apple, ripe pineapple, grapefruit with sugar, lemon, lime candy to zest, tropical melons, limestone minerals, grainy chalkiness, sea spray to sea fossils, jasmine, spring flowers and yellow lilies. Round acidity and gorgeous, sexy finish with balance and great length.
Hasn’t been released. Great now but, amazing things ahead for this bottling. — 2 days ago

Definitely not sub 90. Does it have that backbone and full throttle complexity of a Marcassin, Peter Michael, Aubert or Kistler chard? No. But, as far as Chardonnay goes this one is a pleaser at the $40 price point. Nose of basil and rosemary and limestone, honey and pear. Entry is rounded up front, entry with surprising acidity. Honey, peach, white wildflowers, honeysuckle, mango. Gets more mineral rich in the middle and finish. Impressive chard. I'd say this can hold 5 to 10 years easily. — 2 days ago
