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.

This was quite good for being on the lower end of the LF price scale.

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.
