Wow! What a stellar Chardonnay! For national Chardonnay day, I wanted to open something special. I’d never had this, but @Shawn R knew I was wanting to try and was happy to help me get one.

This is a harmonious marriage of white burgundy (chassagne-Montrachet) and Aubert. Reminds me of a leaner version of Aubert’s Lauren. Crisp at pop and pour. Needs a 30-45min decant. Marzipan, honeyed cashews, and mineral driven. Slowly gives way to lemon cream and tropical notes (mango?). Complex. Lovely. Delicious! Need more of this.

Nose passes as an SB, the finish tells you it is a Cali Chardonnay. Delish. @David L the finish is SICK!!

Different style compared to Bevans Ritchie Vineyard, its a crisp Chard compared to the thick ones I had lately.
But its still very good,
