I thought I preferred Broc reds, but I've eaten those words. This Chard is kickass. Clean, bright, perfect acidity, energy. One of the better Chards I've had this year.

This consistently is brilliant every year. I think this may be one of the best chards for the money in California.

This is amazing right now. Nose of lemons, pear, and cream. Mouthfeel is lovely with lemon curd, malolactic, a hint of oak, umami/mushroom in such a great way. This is would definitely be confused for burgundy right now.
