Wine Details

Lot 552 features a sumptuous nose with fresh cut apple, juicy pear, and tropical pineapple wrapped in vanilla cream soda and crème brûlée. It’s both lush and pretty on the palate, with nicely rendered fruit and mouth coating creaminess that will make this a hit with just about any Chardonnay lover. Excellent length and purity in a long, sustained finish. Definitely swirl this for a full 30 seconds to coax out a peppery, floral top note in addition to the creamy, ripe fruit.

Cam Confidential

In the competitive world of $25-$30 Chardonnays, an 89-point score can be the kiss of death – or, a bit of a headwind in your sails, which is the case with today’s release. Just enough headwind to land 116 cases of wine in the hands of your truly. Honestly, it’s always a bit of a pain to manage such a small project, but the right combination of delicious quality and fantastic price makes these worth the extra effort. This wine shows class, precision and is drinking in its prime. Classic Burgundian styling combined with ripe California fruit. Aged in 20% new French oak, 40% neutral barrel, and 40% stainless steel to add a nice “pure” fruit dimension.

552 is a creamy Chardonnay with a mineral flinty finish. We ordered it and we're delighted that it was such a lovely wine for the price. It's full flavor comes out when served after sitting out of kitchen frig for a few minutes.

No wonder that 552 sold out quickly. Superb quality and value. Glad we ordered six bottles, but wish we'd ordered more. Thank you, CH!
