Natalie's Score: 92/100

A heavy-hitter Chardonnay firing on all sensual cylinders! Loaded with generous butter, oak, pear and pear notes. This wine was made using full barrel fermentation in French oak and then aged another 10 months in oak. Bring it on!

Chardonnay food pairings: lightly smoked sablefish with potato brandade or veal chop with sunchoke puree.

With vines averaging 13-16 years old, their roots extend deep into the clay and gravel soil adding minerality and complexity to the wine. Made from 100% estate grown French clone Chardonnay in a typical cool-climate season showing excellent balance and acidity. This wine was hand crafted using full barrel fermentation in French oak (40% new, 60% 1 year old) for 11 months using Montrachet yeast strains.
