This is all about minerality with fruit playing second fiddle. Fleshy smoky orchard fruit and sweet butter flavors are brightened by white flowers and candied anise with a kiss of herbs on the back. The remarkable mineral expression of this wine reminded me of a top wine from Coche-Dury.

The relatively cool growing season for 2007 Chardonnays produced tightly knit wines with very crisp acid profiles superb concentration because of modest yields and relatively long aging potential of probably up to a decade for most of these Chardonnays. If the scores seem slightly more conservative that in previous vintages this probably reflects the vintage's personality which is more backward than the more evolved 2006s or fabulous 2005s which have always shown brilliantly. Steve Kistler told me that in 2007 they only cropped 22 tons of Pinot Noir fruit from their 18 acres of Pinot vieyards.

Offers a rich intense layered mix of flavors centered around smoky fig apricot melon and spice. Tight concentrated and persistent. Best from 2010 through 2014. 1818 cases made. -JL
