Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Blind as usual.

The entire room guessed Cali (Sonoma) chard. Initially, it was a dead ringer with creamy vanilla from the oak, lemon bar, and honeysuckle aromatics alongside honeyed brioche, soft cheese and sea salt. When coming back to it later, it had really lightened up and wasn’t near as heavy. Very pleasant.

Nose is intense citrus, mostly lemon twist, wet granite slab, green apple, lime blossom and faint white florals.

Palate has lemon squeezed over pear, light creamy oak, dry crushed minerals and light Umami notes on the medium finish. Nice, balanced acidity.

This wine is absurdly young, ideally this is a wine to be opened with about 4-6 years of age, hold 2017 until about 2022+

More than a little resemblance to Corton-Charlamagne in this fresh, nutty, long finishing wine!
