The 2015 Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay from Au Bon Climat is absolutely superb. Jim Clendenen has been producing wine from Bien Nacido for almost 40 years and has a lifetime contract with the vineyard. This Chardonnay was hand harvested and whole cluster pressed, then barrel fermented in 100% new french oak. It offers inviting aromas of ripe apple, citrus peel, buttered almond, fresh white flowers, fresh herbs, vanilla, and well integrated oak. Extreamly delicious with a gorgeous creamy texture and lovely back end acidity. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade.
