This is firing on all cylinders. Probably the best Edge Hill chard we’ve tasted. Honied roasted almonds interplay with bright acidity, creating a nice tension on the mid-palate. Finishes with a balanced vibrancy.

I over chilled this, hence the nose is compressed, although butterscotch is prominent.. Palate is generous, while medium-bodied. A subtle presentation of stone fruits leads into coconut and spice. Finishes with delicate acidity. Consume this vintage now.

Happy Mother’s Day to those precious ladies on this platform 🌸

Still a baby . Many great years in front of it. So sad that Leslie stopped buying fruit from the original 4 acres.

The 2012 is absolutely mind blowing good. I decided to open a 13 to see how it would compare. It needs more time in the bottle. It wasn’t showing as I would have expected from this legendary vineyard. It was good but nowhere near as awesome as the 12.

13' Edge Hill Chardonnay. It needs a bit of time to open up. The original 4 acres.

13' Edge Hill Bacigalupi Chardonnay. I've written about this several times. We pulled the cork & let it open for about 90 minutes. Sensational bottle! Perfect for a little basketball and then a little Monday night football. HTTR ! We have several bottles of this..I can always count on@Martin G Rivard to send a few bottles every now and then. Thanks as always!

13' Edge Hill Bacigalupi Chardonnay. @Martin G Rivard Thank you for this must have bottle of wine. This 4 acres made up 40% of the Château Montelena 1973 chard. Decant this for 1 hour and enjoy. Wait patiently for 2/3 years.
