Located in Santa Barbara County between the towns of Lompoc and Buellton, the Santa Rita Hills AVA is universally lauded as one of the best places to grow Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the US. Lot 699 is sourced from some of the best vineyards in the AVA, and comes to us from the cellars of one of the more famous names in the California wine and restaurant industry (you’ll know whose wine it is when you pull the cork).
This is a Burgundy-style Chard that will blow you away with how much flavor and complexity it delivers. Cellared three years in the bottle, this wine is absolutely singing right now, and yours for less than half the original price!
Tropical and zesty
Full of tropical fruit and felt more old world with nice balance and nuttiness
Great with Oysters Rockefeller
Opened and let it warm up a little after taking it out of the fridge. The minerality paired perfectly with the oysters. Wish I had another bottle.
Not one of my favorites. Disappointed felt it was starting to turn.
Less than Favorite
For these prices, I try not to be critical, but this wine wasn't quite what I expected. Maybe it was because I ordered it in the summertime, but it seemed like it was about ready to turn. The vintage was 2015 so it was not as light and crisp as I had hoped. I'm sure a younger vintage would be better.
I'm glad I stocked up on this one. It was a shiner and after I tried a bottle, I knew it wouldn't last. Terrific wine.
My wife and I absolutely love this wine's layered acidic on the front with oak on the back, and agree with other "burgundy-esque" positive review tasting a bit like Mersault (but better). Also would have to acknowledge that one of our corks looked off so would not be surprised a few bottles in our case may be corked.
Tastes like fish
Just kidding, just saw it was low stock and don't want everyone getting it before I can get a few more cases!
ClarkNYC nailed it ! Those who prefer California - style wine may not appreciate this Meursault like wine .
I tasted this wine blind next to a Premier Cru Meursault and had a hard time differentiating them .
Ordered 2 cases . The wine paired beautifully with halibut . This wine will be better appreciated with a meal .
What value !!
Have drunk 2 bottles so far, and the first was a lovely example of a well aged chardonnay, but unfortunately the second seemed about to be passed its peak.
A very tasty and heavier chard. Darker in color this is a wonderful tasting wine with a rich flavor. Lemony but not too fruity.
