The 2018 Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay is a drop-dead gorgeous showing from LaRue in this vintage. This instantly impresses with its inviting aromas of ripe apple, peach, citrus, creme brûlée, white flowers, honeysuckle, toasted brioche and crushed stones. The palate reveals a gorgeous creamy texture with a wonderful combination of ripeness, acidity and minerality with flavors of peach, Meyer lemon cream and orchard fruits that all collide on the finish. Simply put, this is a gorgeous Chardonnay that is beautiful today, but should also offer a drinking window that spans a decade.
