Vineyard 7 & 8 Estate Chardonnay 2011

#VIN11CH3 | 750mL

I was shocked at how complex and full-bodied this Chard was when I first tasted it considering how cool of a harvest season 2011 was. This is a great Chardonnay and probably oneof the most concentrated, layered Chards I've tasted coming out of Napa Valley. Luc Morlet makes great Chard (as we've tasted from his efforts in the past at Staglin and Peter Michael) and this one is a great example. Because they're at2000 feet in elevation, the acidity and natural ripening of the grapes is balanced. In the glass, you'll taste notes of baked apple and exotic fruit with a little honey and vanillaon the finish. For what you get in the glass, this is a great price going up against the Luc Morlets and Peter
