Hyde de Villaine Chardonnay 2015
If there was ever going to be a Chardonnay that combines the best of California with the best of Burgundy it's gotta come from Larry Hyde of Hyde Vineyards and Aubert de Villaine of Domaine Romanee Conti. The 2014 HDV Chardonnay is an absolutley stunning bottleof wine, truly the best of both worlds
"Fresh floral, citrus and white peach aromas on the nose open into a silken palate offering intense bright stone fruit, pear, and savory minerality. Exceptional freshness is balanced by a rich mouthfeel and profound, mineral depth. With beauty, class and focus in one golden package, this wine has excellent aging potential, and I look forward to drinking it for many years to come."

James Suckling"This shows fabulous stone, dried apple and honey aromas that follow through to a full body, with fantastic focus and energy. Great acidity at the finish. Wow. The depth and length are incredible." JamesSuckling.com (JS, 01/04/2018)
