Envoyer Imports, Laguna Hills CA.
100% Chardonnay from Portlandian limestone in Ville-sur-Arce. Organic/BIO. Raised in used barrique for nine months. Full malo. Bottled without dosage. 2010 vintage, October 2012 disgorgement, 2014 release.
Yellow-gold, not as deep as the ‘Goustan’. Bold and expansive, full of flavor, marked by a spicy calcaire freshness. Savory, concentrated fruit. Kinetic all the way through, culminating in a tension-filled finish of peppery accents. Inquisitive for a wine so rich; opulent for a wine sans dosage. Think about decanting this. Now – 2020.
