Wine Details

My first impression of this wine was just that: crystalline purity. The quality here, the sense of effortless class, is beguiling. The classic Burgundian combo of lemon oil, rock and blossom peek from behind an apple and honey core. Tight on entry with a sappy, lip-smacking core of energized orchard fruit slathered on a a powerful mineral beam that finishes epically long, pure, if tightly wound, finish. This wine will flesh out beautifully over the next couple of years and over the next 10-15. For those of you with the patience, possibly our finest Chardonnay to date.

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.

Based on the reviews, I waited a bit before opening one of these puppies up. Glad I did! This one will keep for quite a while. It is tightly wound, but opens up nicely with some air. More of a classic style. Not too oaky. Can't wait to see where this goes in a couple of years.

my wife loves all chards by cam...in this case we gave the 570 a go, and it was extra special.

The distinctive burgundy quality married well to the California chardonnay traits in terms of approachability & a nuanced extra

something in harmony with how it melds on the way down.

Worthy special occasion Chardonnay at our table !

White Burgundy from California! Delicious fruit, long crisp and mineral finish. Definitely cellar-worthy.

Maybe we didn't let it breathe long enough; maybe we opened it too soon, but I like 576 better than this one.

I drink a lot of wine. I try to keep it under $20 a bottle but this chard is one of my exceptions. Simply perfect and well worth the cost!!!

While pricey and requiring a little time, it pays off nicely.

This wine is better than wines I have consumed at twice the price. Full bodied and wonderful on the palate. I will be buying more. Also did my own taste test of this wine as opposed to Lot 595 Russian River Valley, this one is definitely worth the price difference.

Despite the price, I ordered a case in December when it was released based on how wonderful lot 169 was. After initial reviews indicating it needed a little more time I waited, about 4 months. Last night I opened to accompany a fish dinner, very very good, finished it tonight, excellent. Glad I ordered a second case a few weeks ago.
