Ridge Vineyards Estate Chardonnay 2017

$54.99

Ridge's Estate Chardonnay is one of the best buys in California.  A gem from the Santa Cruz Mountains, it's got complex fruit aromas and flavors, firm acidity, leesy texture and a mineral streak that make this a Chardonnay that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with your next meal. Get the new vintage before the scores come out! 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Chardonnay Estate has a Burgundian reductive quality as well as first-rate notes of caramelized orchard fruits, crushed rock, and subtle toasty, nutty notes. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity, it has beautiful mid-palate depth, and well as the class and structure to keep for 15+ years. This is beautifully done." previous vintage 95 points Robert Parker: "The Chardonnay Estate is an impeccable, classy wine layered with bright citrus, flowers and just a touch of sweetness from the oak. Crushed rocks and lime peel add complexity on the textured, long finish.  None of the blocks were designated for the Monte Bello bottling, all of the fruit went into the Estate. This is a stunningly pure wine from Ridge. I came back to the 2009 Estate after having tasted all of the reds and the wine showed beautifully. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019."

Nose displays lanolin, Meyer lemon and beeswax. Oily texture on the palate, intermixed with crème brûlée and hints of white pepper. Finishes with moderate sweetness and soft caressing acidity. Stunning effort - Fulton St by Jean Georges.
