Stylistically similar to 2013's Lot 569. Butter, blossom, and rock on the nose, followed by lemon balm and crème brulee on the palate. Plenty of structure here, with easily another decade of life in bottle. Serve at the dinner table now if you must, but it's definitely something you should throw into your cellar. Decant 1 hour in the near term.
Cam Confidential

The 2015 vintage offering from the same producer as Lot 569.

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. Tasting room per-bottle price of $65.

For those of you interested in a perfectly aged example of California Chardonnay winemaking at the absolute highest level, I can think of no finer opportunity to have a taste. A Russian River Valley Chardonnay from a top estate with perfect, direct-from-the-cellar provenance.
