This powerful Chardonnay opens to reveal a citrus complex of Buddha’s hand, galangal and kaffir lime leaf underlain by cut melon, firm stone fruits and fissured granite with flecks of damp limestone and subtle hints of spice. Like 300 thread-count Pima cotton sheets, this precise wine is cool, crisp and smooth with a lithe and engaging texture that just glides seamlessly from beginning to end.
"The 2016 Chardonnay Estate displays some toasty oak, lots of spicy green apple notes along with white peach, and a hint of smoked hazelnuts, giving it somewhat of a premier cru Meursault identity. This is well-made and impressive,... Drink ...over the next 6-9 years." 91/100 Robert Parker Wine Advocate
