Rochioli Estate Grown Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2015

$62.99

97 Points - limited release                          A great new Chardonnay release from Ramey. Limited. 97 Points Wine Enthusiast: "This is such a beautiful wine, incorporating blocks from the nearby Allen Vineyard, also farmed by the Rochiolis. Reduced nicely on the nose, it's lemony with a great core of juicy acidity around grainy, gravelly texture and minerality. With an exotic edge, it finishes elegantly in lemon peel and orange blossom." 97 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "The finest white in the lineup is the 2015 Chardonnay Rochioli Vineyard. More crystalline, salty, and toasty, with beautiful orchard fruits, this rockstar effort tastes like a great Montrachet. With full body, beautiful concentration, vibrant acidity, and a great, great finish, drink it anytime over the coming 10-15 years."

Apple, lemon candy, butterscotch, vanilla, buttery oak and slate. Good acidity and average structure.

Meyer lemon bomb. Thick, waxy, creamy and a touch austere this young.

We had the 2015 Vintage on 11/26-27/20. This is a full bodied, well balanced Chardonnay with tastes of lemon, vanilla and mild oak. A real good Chardonnay

We had the 2015 Vintage on 5/16-17/20. A flintiness, oak, vanilla and lemongrass. Well balanced, full bodied. Just terrific.

We had the 2015 Vintage On 7/7-8/19. A terrible Chardonnay that is full bodied with smooth finish. There tastes of tropical fruit, apricot and oak. There is a minerality that is characteristic of a Mersault.
