AU BON CLIMAT Chardonnay, Sanford & Benedict Vineyard 2017

Au Bon Climat's 2017 Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay is simply beautiful. On the nose it offers up an intoxicating bouquet of white peaches, gooseberry, orange, ripe lemon, almond, wet stone and white flowers which all combine brilliantly in the glass. The palate reveals wonderful balance, with bright acidity and a creamy texture that shows incredible length. Flavors of bright citrus oil, vanilla cream, ripe peach and almond all combine beautifully and leave a lasting impression. While this is nothing short if fantastic today, however it will be interesting to watch this evolve and gain complexity over the course of the next decade. A serious value.
