Everything chard should be including expensive and hard to find.

Rabdom Thursday out of a Zaalto. Coming off the wedding week. Forgot to include the rockstar bottles from our night. (DRC, Rayas, Realm)

I think that this is the best young Kongsgaard Chardonnay that I've tasted so far. While it offers its telltale lemon oily richness and rich texture, this vintage also adds nuances and freshness thanks to a less obvious oak treatment. Well done, John!

This, along with the Aubert tasted, are pinnacles in their field as far as US whites are concerned. The stone/tropical fruit acidity, minerality, and toast elements were all perfectly in sync. Got better as it got some air and approached room temperature.

Scents of cirrus - grapefruit, hint of lime. Full-bodied, long, lingering flavor

First time tasting this - it’s a wow. A Bender donation to the poor. If you could bottle angel’s piss, this would be it! Layered but presented in such a regal way.

Restrained nose, could use some decanting. Searing acidity and minerality . High alcohol, but very balanced. Long finish. Great.
