The 2017 Chardonnay Chappellet Grower Collection Calesa Vineyard comes from a site in the Petaluma Gap and was aged nine months in barrel. It has a pretty, melon, tropical, and salty Seabreeze like perfume as well as medium body, good freshness and acidity, and a great finish. It's certainly an outstanding Chardonnay that should keep for 4-5 years or more.

Stone and white flower accents complement a midpalate of rounded lemon cookie, peach and pear, with just a touch of baking spice on the soft lengthy finish. - VIRGINIE BOONE

There’s a simple array of ripe pear and melon aromas here with poached-pear flavor on the palate, delivering simple, fleshy and round appeal. Neat, phenolic edge to the finish. Drink now.
