A different animal, the 2017 Chardonnay Private Reserve is richer and more opulent, with Montrachet-like caramelized lemon, tropical fruits, and brioche aromas and flavors. Nevertheless, it’s still more elegant and vibrant than past vintages, with medium body, a layered texture, and good acidity. I love its balance and it can be drunk any time over the coming 2-4 years, although there’s no need to delay gratification.

It opens with beautiful crème brûlée and candied ginger notes over a core of pineapple and green mango with a waft of brioche. Medium-bodied, satiny and with fantastic freshness, it delivers loads of tropical layers and great length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2017 Chardonnay Private Reserve is a classic Chardonnay from Beringer. There is a good bit of richness to the Private Reserve, but in his tenure Mark Beringer has also moved this wine towards a slightly fresher style, something that was accentuated in 2017, where the warm season led to earlier picking at lower sugars than is the norm for this wine. Lemon confit, flowers, tangerine and mint are all framed by a kiss of French oak. -- Antonio Galloni
