New project by MS Larry Stone. Elegant, restrained and exceptionally food-friendly, Burgundian-styled Chard. Good things to come from this winery in the future.

So good. Comes across as French, not new world. Understated. Should improve with time. Love this wine.

Crisp, lemony, a bit of honey, saline, minerally. Better as it warms up. Beautiful wine.

Full malolactic fermentation gives a light oaky nose but does not carry thru to flavor. On tongue ascetic, lots of mineral. Somewhat thin.

Killer example of what Oregon brings to the table for Chardonnay.

Very deceptive, nose is rich and very explosive; on the pallet the wine is sexy and seductive with great acidity, very refined and elegant without being heavy
