2016 Hyde de Villaine (HDV) Carneros Chardonnay

SKU #1415153 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very dense and serious with freshness and powerful acidity that gives it intensity and focus. Goes on and on with so much floral and sliced-lime flavor and hints of white flowers, pear blossom and minerals. So beautiful to drink now, but will improve with age. Inner quote mark

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Chalky at first, the 2016 Chardonnay takes its time to reveal citrus blossoms, lime peel, crushed stone, apricots and pure lemon and apple fruit with dusty, minerally nuances. The palate walks a wonderful line of pure, ripe fruits and fresh citrusy and rocky accents. It has a silky texture, tangy lift and a very long, nuanced finish. This has the stuffing and structure to be very long lived. (EB) 95+ Inner quote mark (6/2020)
