Tasting Notes

100% Chardonnay from the 2010 vintage, vinified in oak barrels.  Zero sulfur, even at harvest. En tirage for 66 months. As noted, this is an “opinionated” wine. It’s intense, darker and smokier in character than Chardonnay normally shows; it’s a different face all together. With time, the fruit emerges, with typical dark cherry and red, but in tandem with a dark saline character. Broad, but not ripe and juicy, this is not a wine for everyone – it’s almost starched, upright and intense.
