Tasting Notes
Light golden yellow core with a touch of green and yellow reflections on the rim. The purity of the fruit from Bald Mountain really shines in this vintage, and delivers a tasting experience not too different than a serious Meursault, one of the most famous sites for Chardonnay production in France. The nose is gently perfumed with notes of white flowers, honeysuckle, yellow apple, Meyer lemon, stirred lees, raw hazelnut, a touch of oyster shells and wet white rocks. The palate is medium-plus in body, with a touch of oiliness, with a refreshing acidity which frames the wine perfectly. On the palate the wine has flavors similar to the nose with notes of crunchy asian pear, lime pith, lemon blossoms, yellow apples, wet stones and a savory mushroom / saline accent on the finish. This wine will get better and better with time and I firmly believe this wine should be rested for at least 2-3 more years for it to really hit its stride. The wine is delicious now, but the best side of this wine will emerge with a bit of time.
