Saintsbury Chardonnay 2013

SANGIACOMO GREEN ACRES HERITAGE BLOCK OLD WENTE

92

A salty lick of saline brings the palate to attention before tingling acidity seals the experience: the wine's backbone a nicely balanced combination of generous oak that supports ripe fruit. Francois Freres and Taransaud barrels cradled the wine for 10 months, only 35% of it new, making for a robust yet elegant expression of the variety from this site. Editors' Choice. - V.B. $62
