2013 Cattleya Wines

  • Chardonnay
  • Pratt Vineyard
  • Russian River Valley
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"It offers a brilliantly defined, crisp and slightly Burgundian bouquet of white fruits, flowers, flinty minerality, honey and hints of toasted nuts. Ultra-pure, clean and crystalline on the palate, with racy acidity that stays nicely integrated, it has plenty of fruit, a balanced, layered texture and a great finish. "

"This offers even more minerality than the Ellen Lane, with notes of wet gravel, white currants, peach, honeysuckle and tangerine oil. It’s a beauty."

2013 Dumol

  • Chardonnay
  • Isobel
  • Sonoma
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"Absolutely sensational, the 2013 Chardonnay Isobel comes exclusively from the 32-year-old vines of the Charles Heintz Vineyard. Barrel-fermented and aged 13 months on its lees, then four months in tank, this wine offers up quintessential Chardonnay notes such as white peach, wet stones and hazelnut. It exhibits great acidity, a full-bodied, honeyed texture, superb purity, and a tightly coiled, crisp, zesty finish. It should be even better with another 6-12 months of cellaring and keep for a decade or more."

2014 Paul Hobbs

  • Chardonnay
  • Richard Dinner Vineyard
  • Sonoma
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"The two 2014 cuvées from the Richard Dinner Vineyard are both full-throttle Chardonnays, with the Cuvée Agustina just bigger, denser, richer and, to my taste, even superior to the 2013 version. Both should drink well for 7-10 years."

2014 Paul Hobbs

  • Chardonnay
  • Ulises Valdez Vineyard
  • Russian River Valley
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"Again my probable favorite. Killer tangerine, orange blossom and honeyed citrus notes are present in this full-bodied, beautifully pure Chardonnay that shows very little evidence of oak, as all of these wines do, even though they’re still in barrel."

  • Ellen Lane Estate
  • Russian River Valley
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"Exhibits more gravelly, wet pebble notes and loads of uplifted aromatics, including peach, pineapple, orange rind and lemon blossom. It is again a complex style of Chardonnay made from a cold microclimate."

2014 Morlet

  • Chardonnay
  • Ma Douce
  • Sonoma
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"Among the top 2014 Chardonnays I tasted from among the likes of Peter Michael as well as Marcassin and Aubert. The small crops seem to have produced even more intense wines, but also more structured wines. You can see from my scores this is another great vintage for Luc Morlet."

2013 Catena Zapata

  • Chardonnay
  • White Bones
  • Mendoza
  • Adriana Vineyard
  • Argentina
  • White
  • 750 ml

"This superb, elegant and aromatic effort seemed to jump out of the glass with its perfumed personality. It has a spicy, nutty nose with minty freshness and a sensation of wet stones. The oak is perfectly integrated and it has an elegant profile, a wine built around finesse and acidity. It finished with a chalky, mineral finish, definitively salty. Simply stunning!"

2015 Peter Michael

  • Chardonnay
  • Belle Cote
  • Knight's Valley
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"A nearly perfect wine, and like the other cuvées, these wines see nearly a year in 50%-60% new oak before being moved to tank and bottled unfiltered. In 2015, these 25-year-old vines produced an incredible wine of great depth, with notes of orange marmalade, pineapple jam, crème brûlée, brioche, honeysuckle and tropical fruit. There is also an underlying minerality that is attributable to the deep root system that the vines possess."
