In this vintage, the Chardonnay is surprisingly rich and unctuous yet it also retains its mid-weight feel. Orchard fruit, white flowers and mint, along with slightly tropical overtones, give the 2015 much of its distinctive personality. Readers who can find the 2015 should plan on cellaring it for at least a few years, as the wine needs time to shed its baby fat. Tasted again after the reds, with a good 30 minutes in the glass, the Chardonnay is flat-out gorgeous. About 80% of the wine spent time in larger foudres, which likely helped it retain a measure of freshness.

This is such a wonderful, linear and bright white with lemon and lime character and a creamy, crispy finish. Full body, tight and vivid. Stocky and solid. Love. Only 5% new wood. Drink now.

Dry-farming, high elevation and maturation in a variety of barrel sizes has produced a most elegant wine here.

Dry-farming, high elevation and maturation in a variety of barrel sizes has produced a most elegant wine here. Roast cashew and roast hazelnut aromas segue seamlessly into concentrated notions of lemon oil and zest. This is fluid and concentrated, powerful but poised. The finish is clean-cut, citrus-scented and long, echoing life and verve.

Pure, rich and zesty, with vibrant, snappy apple, pear and honeydew flavors. Flinty minerality lends this a distinctive quality. Drink now through 2022. –JL

Gorgeous orchard fruit aromas dominate on the nose while notes of sea breeze, crushed gravel and sweet cream add complexity. Apple and pear carry over to the palate where they pick up a citrus-tinged edge underscored by a trace of wet stones. Vibrant and lively, a precise beam of acidity and a hint of salinity make for a mouthwatering experience and urges that another sip be taken. Delicious now but built to provide pleasure over the next 4-6 years.
