2016 vintage, and it's tasting much clunkier than the 2015s. Young and hot. Still aged in SS, no oak on this wine. Lemon creme, golden apples, and chalkiness dominate. Lacks direction and unbalanced. Might give this one 6-12 months to bloom a bit.

Immediately I get lemon and white pepper and it reminds me of some of my favorite Austrian gruners (see Nikolaihoff) or maybe a high quality muscadet (see domaine de L’ecu). It has a richness from extended lees contact that provides a depth and layer of complexity. Lioco sharply departs there once you taste the explosive acidity. This is a rare Chardonnay in that it is 1. cheap (I paid less than $20) and 2. multidimensional. Lioco should have a permanent spot in the queue.

Crowd pleasing Chardonnay. Tasting note- lemon bar, grapefruit and rosemary.

Wow, I really enjoyed this. Lemony, kiwi, yellow apple. Stainless steel and natural MF, which to me gave it a nice roundness on the finish. Even my wife who is not a Chard fan loved this. This is one to buy by the case.
