Ok, so I thought the '11 was my favorite, but the '13 just knocked it off. Damn! The pure beauty of Chardonnay.

Lemon custard and crushed white rock on the nose. The palate adds tart pear along with the entire spectrum of citrus which rides a beam of acidity all the way through the long, chalk dusted finish. Blind, I would convince myself it's Chablis, and a good one. A classic.

Just as I remember. Buttery a bit acidic and really smooth

Pears, mango and Papaya on the nose. Sharp acid, with a rich creamy finish. Not overly buttery but solid oak and a long lingering finish.
