Kongsgaard Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015

$140

Vinous, 93-95 Points: The 2015 Chardonnay is super-polished, refined and delicate. Even though the wine was sulfured about a month before this tasting, the flavors are remarkably pure. On the palate, the 2015 feels a bit linear, but that is almost certainly attributable to the sulfur. Candied lemon peel, white flowers and mint grace the exquisite, nuanced finish. John Kongsgaard adds that the fermentations were very slow in 2015 for this wine.

Ending this morning’s flight with an iconic Napa white. Creamy, and bountiful it sings of California, without losing its pillared acid structure. Squash blossom, cereal grains, ripe yellow apple skin - the liquid embodiment of the golden West Coast sun.

Exklusiv smakprofil. Kittlande mineral med mogna gröna äpplen, kola, vanilj och krut. Rund munkänsla och lyxig längd.

Popping this baby on account of it being my first Kongsgaard. Had to know if I should keep buying. This may be young but it’s already a determined bad boy. Looking forward to trying this with substantial age.

About what I rated the 09 in 2012 and the 14 in 2017. And I think I had a 12 not too long ago. These chards are good but this one particularly didn't hold a candle to a 14 Aubert Ritchie Chard. Hopefully not bottle variation on a 2015... Seemed to just not have a whole lot there. And I don't think it's because it is too astringent...the Judge wines seem to definitely rock it though. I got ahold of this one probably an hour after it had been open.
