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!
Well I have a new favorite chardonnay wine. I would think 2014 is aged and darker but it is perfect. Very crisp, tart. If you like oak this is a great alternative.
Another nice Chard that is not real oaky
Has some good complexity but not really heavy or oaky. Will be in my summer mix for nice crisp whites.
One of my favorite
Loved it so much I ordered a few more bottles.
Crisp and refreshing
I usually lean towards a more buttery Chard, but this one was light and crisp and will be perfect for a summer evening!
No oak, just great fruit and minerality. Our new house white.
Crisp, refreshing and tart, and more steely than oaky. I docked a point because I prefer oak, but if that sounds like your speed then you'll love this wine.
This wine is wonderful.
I literally smacked my lips after the first sip. I too prefer a buttery chard, but I can definitely see this super chilled on a hot summer day. It is crisp and fruity. Quite yummy after the initial 'smack'.
I don't know what vineyard Cameron was expecting us to "know whose wine it is when you pull the cork" but I immediately thought of Plumpjack with a hint of oak. If you like a crisp refreshing Chardonnay this fits the bill. It seems like a steal at this price point. My wife loves all the CH chards. I partake in a few of them but when I do I prefer LOT669.
Light & Drinkable
A Chardonnay at 12% in today's market? What a breath of fresh air!
Not at all heavy, with citrus fruit notes and good acidity. Great for a summer's evening - just a shame it was snowing outside :(
