The 2017 Chardonnay Wingtine comes from a handful of sites and is always a good introduction to the vintage. Fermented and aged in 10% new oak, it offers a classic Burgundian bouquet of stone fruits, crushed citrus, some obvious minerality, and a kiss of oak. It has a beautiful freshness as well as an alluring reductive quality that's balanced by beautiful fruit and texture. It's a beautiful, elegant wine. 204 cases.
