This completely over delivers. Would have guessed a Faiveley Mercurey Blanc blind. The nose shows apple, tons of stony minerals, salt air and jasmine. The palate is lit up with perfect acidity; carrying all those same flavors along with some crushed rocks, tangerine, and fresh made caramel. 2014 is the best vintage of this yet. I want to lay it down a few years, but can’t resist drinking it now.

Delicious Chardonnay craving more time in bottle. Structured and textured. Round citrus fruit that’s restrained yet weighty. Long finish of clean lemon and orange peel and oh so faintly creamy.

💥 💥 💥 😁. This is 🔥!!!! Electrifying on the palate. Very expressive nose and massive acidity. This is one of the best Chardonnay values on the market. Stupid ridiculous. This particular vintage saw some of the Bentrock declassified fruit make it in this bottle. @June's All Day, Austin TX

Delicious expression of chardonnay- powerful nose with typical rich california fruit but extreme elegance and long minerality on the palate

Let this come to 60-65F and you will be rewarded. At chillier temps this is all lemon household cleaner.
