Grapes:  100% Chardonnay

 

 

Tasting Notes:  Starts out with aromas of white peach, honeysuckle, crème brûlée, and jasmine.  The palate is fruit driven from beginning to end.  Apple pie, melon, and stone fruit flavors linger on the tongue.  The mid-palate is full and rich, with a touch of minerality.  This wine finishes for days, with fruit and a refreshing pop of acidity.

 

Coming from the same cuttings of the Chardonnay vines that won Chateau Montelena the Judgement of Paris in 1976, this is a very rare and special release of Chardonnay!  One of the few Chardonnays built to age, age this beauty over the next 5-10 years—or even longer!
