Always a barrel selection of the choicest lots, the 2016 'Recolte Grand Cru' is a stunning Chardonnay from Domaine Serene. Needing more than an hour decant to fully evolve, it awakens to bright aromatics of banana, pineapple, Pazzaz apple, and lemon infused sourdough bread aromatics that all combine wonderfully in the glass. There is a seamless quality to the wine as this dances across the mid-palate. Copious minerals collide with lemon oil, vanilla cream, brioche and shades of pineapple on the seductive palate. The minute-long finish completes this incredible new release. This is absolutely stunning now and will only improve with time in the bottle. Overall, Michael Fay has crated one of the great wines of Oregon here. Try to resist this beauty for at least another year.
