AU BON CLIMAT Chardonnay 'Nuits-Blanches au Bouge' 2014

The 'Nuits-Blanches au Bouge' Chardonnay from Au Bon Climat comes from 90% Bien Nacido Vineyard “K” Block, and 10% from the Le Bon Climat Vineyard. It has an extreamly attractive nose with aromas of lemon curd, tropical fruit, vanilla blossom, spring flowers, and ripe pear all coming together beautifully. This gorgeous Chardonnay has a lovely rich texture which is remarkably well balanced by brilliant underlying acidity. While quite accessible today, this will continue to gain complexity over the next 7-10 years. Overall, a fascinating wine from Jim Clendenen. (Best 2017-2027) - June 2017 (MD)
