Rochioli Estate Grown Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

$69.99

97 Points - limited release                          A great new Chardonnay release from Ramey. Limited. 98 Points Wine Enthusiast: "The second vintage of this vineyard-designate is a standout: beautifully crafted to reflect its meticulously farmed fruit and master winemaking. Brioche, honeyed apple, anise and pear wrap around crisp acidity and integrated oak, the wine's innate power balanced within an elegant framework of structure and graceful texture." 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck:  "One of my favorite releases from Ramey, the 2016 Chardonnay Rochioli Vineyard comes from a Grand Cru site in the Russian River and has incredibly classic notes of white flowers, tart citrus, and subtle orchard fruits. It’s one of those wines that’s both powerful and elegant, with medium to full body, a great mid-palate, integrated acidity, and just everything in the right places. It’s a beautiful, layered, age-worthy Chardonnay to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years."

The best wine I had during was three tastings. Rich yellow apple and green pear, nice medium acid along with brûlée caramel and perfectly balanced butter. I cannot to see how this evolves.

Love their white wines. No oak, no butter just crisp clean made more like a white burgundy
