Neyers Chardonnay 2009

EL NOVILLERO VINEYARD (CARNEROS)

94

The 2009 Chardonnay El Novillero Vineyard reminds me of some of the glory days of Louis Latour’s Corton-Charlemagne. Smoky bacon fat, poached pear, honeysuckle, peach and earth all combine in a full-bodied , minerally, yet authortatively flavored Chardonnay that is part California and seemingly part French. This beauty, from a cool-climate vineyard, is just that loaded. Drink it over the the next 5-6 years. $42
