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.
Young, but very good
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.
great value - smooth and distinctive
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 !
a beautiful Chardonnay
White Burgundy from California! Delicious fruit, long crisp and mineral finish. Definitely cellar-worthy.
tasted smooth and great from the first sip. had to re-order immediately. highly recommend. worth the money and more.
Not much body or complexity to me
Maybe we didn't let it breathe long enough; maybe we opened it too soon, but I like 576 better than this one.
Love Love Love
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!!!
Light Dinner wine
This wine is perfect for serving at a light or cold meal.
Just what you'd expect
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.

Worth the wait
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.
