Beautiful chardonnay. Meursault like. Grape skin, grape soda, oak on the palate as an aspect not a dominating factor, old world toast. 5 percent new oak, remainder is used oak.

Absolutely delicious. Wet stone, green apple and pear, nice weight and a memorable finish.

Slightly sweet, full bodied without being overly creamy or oaky.

Would benefit with more cellar time but very balanced, mild presence of oak, layered aromas, nice finish / great with pasta.

Such a great distinctive wine!! Interesting tastes. Lovely hints of tropical fruits. Pineapples. Green apples. Wet stone. Soft acidity. Perfect pairing companion for our seafood risotto. Saluti a tutti!

Extremely oaky, butterscotch and vanilla. Becomes a lot drier once it opens. Still traces of a bit of oak and vanilla. But of minerality.

I'm typically not a Chardonnay fan but this may be my favorite Chardonnay. Crisp not creamy, nice full body. I need to hide some bottles because if it's in my house, I have a hard time not drinking it.

Started nicely with jasmine aromas. Sweet young palate of pear and smooth texture. Tapered after an hour or 2, with sweetness evaporating to veer towards an alkali taste and texture.
