(1998 Vintage) With just a hint of red berry fruit from Pinot Noir, this Chardonnay-driven wine combines the best of both noble varieties. Rich, tropical fruit aromas are reflected on the palate—pineapple, citrus and cherry. Toasted hazelnuts and freshly-baked sourdough grace the senses, emphasizing the importance of time spent yeast-aging in our caves. The mid-palate, luxurious with vanilla cream, is complemented by a rich, zesty, seamless finish that lasts as long as the memories of this unforgettable wine.
