World class, single vineyard designate Chardonnay shiners sourced from one of the Russian River Valley’s iconic vineyards, barrel fermented in a combination of 100% new French oak of the highest order and cement eggs, then aged for 16 months and an additional two years in bottle before its initial release to the tasting room (at a per-bottle price of $65).
For those of you interested in a perfectly aged, just-entering-its-prime example of California Chardonnay winemaking at the absolute highest level, I can think of no finer opportunity to have a taste. Unless you’re playing the auction market, this is actually a rare find: a 2013 vintage Russian River Valley shiner from a top estate with perfect, direct-from-the-cellar provenance.
This is richest and most complex chardonnay that I have purchased from Cameron Hughes; which is not to say that it is the best QPR. But its range--from sweet nose to sharp finish and everything in between--makes it worth the price.
My favorite so far!
I am fairly new to CH wines, but I must say I have been pleased so far. This Russian River Valley Chardonnay has been my favorite so far! I have since purchased the 570, since the 569 has sold out. I am hoping to like it as well as the 569.
Long time fan of Russian River wines...
At the high end of the price range for Cameron Hughes Chardonnay but does not disappoint. Really good.
We enjoyed this chard but it isn't as buttery as we had expected. Nice color. Great wine to sip while fixing dinner.
My favorite CAM Chardonnay of all time
As an everyday Chard drinker, I try to keep my costs down, thanks to (CHwine) so I was a little nervous spending more, however, I was thrilled with this heavenly treat. This is a wine to sip, and savor each taste. It's rich, but not overpowering, and the bottle I reach for when I believe I should have a special treat.
This is the best chardonnay from California I have ever had the pleasure to drink! It is perfectly balanced, the fruit is exotic and lingering and the oak accentuates the palate but does not overpower the wine like so many CA Chards. Beautiful.
This is a delicious Chardonnay! Classic!
I purchased this for my wife who loves chardonnay from Russian River Valley. She never got a chance to have any.
I have not had a chard like this in years. It's a 'heavy' white wine. You can feel the weight of it. If you keep it on your tongue a few seconds you can feel the layers of flavor begin to unravel in perfect balance. The nose opens up with nice oak but not too heavily. A white wine for gentle sipping and contemplation. Delicious!
