shockingly good Chablis with minerals and a lovely creaminess, finishes very long and expansive. Intense clean fruit.

One of the finest chardonnays I have tasted to date. A beautiful Smokey nose is offset by a classic cold-climate Chardonnay acid rain with notes of gruyere cheese and well-integrated oak. A gritty saltiness grips the palate and complements the natural astringency of the wine. Paired with Parmesan cheese at the suggestion of a friend and the pairing was phenomenal.

Needed some time to open up, especially on the nose. So many bits of crisp fruit & tense acidity emerged. Pure clean Chablis with plenty of texture. Very good.
