2012 Chehalem Reserve Chardonnay

2012 Chehalem Reserve Chardonnay

The 2012 Reserve Chardonnay is gorgeous, as much like a Corton Chardonnay as any we can remember making. Essence of baking spices, brown sugar, brioche, and butterscotch complement the lemon curd, baked apple, and white flower notes seen throughout. The acidity needed structurally for a truly ageable Chardonnay is present, but it doesn’t interfere with its custard-like, rich, round, supple palate. Everyone tasting this wine was amazed by its seductivity; the balance is outstanding, the length and flavor persistence excellent for this age, a touch of warm wood was present (like being enveloped by a gentle sauna), and a silky, full, creamy texture promises one of the best Chardonnays we’ve made. Just, wow.
