Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley – 2009
2009 Hyde de Villaine Chardonnay highlights why Hyde Vineyard is the elite Chardonnay site in California. The wine is rich and complex, while exuding finesse and elegance. Intense aromas of fresh fig and stone fruit develop over time in the glass. The complexity relies on an intricate evolution of spice, apricot and pear notes that leads to a persistent finish. Reminiscent of grand cru Burgundy, this wine will age gracefully for two decades.
