2017 DuMOL 'Chloe' Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, USA (750ml)
The 2017 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard was barrel fermented and aged 12 months on the lees in 33% new oak. It opens to aromas of yellow peach, quince paste, baked apples and spicy oak touches with accents of honey, toast, hay and white flowers plus touches of seashell and lime peel. Light to medium-bodied, it's intensely flavored with a mineral/savory dichotomy in the mouth, mouthwatering acidity and a long, layered and textured finish. Wow!
-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 pts.
The 2017 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard is another super-impressive wine in this range. Creamy and voluptuous in the glass, with lifted aromatics, the 2017 has so much to offer. Today, it is remarkably complete for such a young wine. Yellow orchard fruit and lifted floral notes add shades of nuance. The wine's total sense of poise is remarkable.
