Intense nose between pear and almonds very focused. A little white floral too
Palate is delicious and long, tingling on the tongue

This was a fun wine to drink. The blend really complements itself and the wine is showing great. It’s very fresh, there’s great harmony on the palate, and the texture is round, soft, and appealing. More tertiary character on the nose than palate.

This producers been on my shortlist for a while now -- glad to finally try it! I like it as much as I'd have hoped. Impeccable balance and purity of fruit: lime zest, marzipan, tire shop, and burnt marshmallow -- a strange combination of flavors, but somehow it works.

Love this wine for its ability to max out both in terms of purity and soulfulness- most wines have to choose.

Peaches, pear and flowers. Too cold to really taste.

This is actually the 2000 Chardonnay. Still going strong.

Birth year wine! Took a while for the wine to open. Deep golden yellow. Bruised apples and pears, apple skin. Freshness and minerality throughout the palate. Slightly nutty, like almonds and some florals like bruised petals. Gorgonzola cheese and some herbaceous notes linger. Despite the age, a fresh and delicious white wine.
