This beauty shows some obvious minerality on the palate, with bright, racy acidity, tons of fruit, and a great finish. It’s up there with the crème de la crème of the vintage.

The 2017 Chardonnay Ma Princesse is a little reticent to begin, opening slowly with delicate notes of lemon meringue pie, white peaches and lime leaves plus emerging nuances of wet slate, paraffin wax, struck flint and croissant with a waft of praline. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is tightly wound and packed with taut citrus and mineral layers, framed by fantastic freshness and a satiny texture, finishing wonderfully tangy. 350 cases were made. - LPB

The flavors are bold and lush, with striking persistence and lovely aromatic lift from the floral notes that develop with air. Energetic, super-expressive and inviting, the 2017 Ma Princesse is a terrific Chardonnay from Ritchie Vineyard. -- Antonio Galloni
