The elegance confirms a great vintage with all of the necessary components present. A beautifully ripe pear/coconut aroma is layered neatly in and around a perfect toasty clean barrel sur lees aroma. Chardonnay expression is very forward but not obvious, hot, sweet or obtrusive. This is a rich wine, yet the acidity level still balances the breadth and leaves that desirable mineral quality. This one could be a classic and will be fun to follow over the next 10 years.
