DOMAINE SERENE Chardonnay, Etoile Vineyard 2013

The Etoile vineyard is located at the west facing slope of the Evenstad Estate. This wine was aged 16 months in 33% new French oak prior to bottling in March 2015. This Chardonnay begins with aromas of oak, nutmeg, marzipan and orange blossom. There are flavors of Japanese pear, white peach, and lemon zest with a wonderful long and lingering finish with light cream. The brightness of citrus is there, as is the exceptional structure and intensity. Like the Cote Sud, there is a seamless texture to this wine. Hats off to Erik Kramer and his winemaking team for crafting these absolutely stunning single vineyard Chardonnays that are among the best that I have sampled this vintage.(Best 2016-2025) - February, 2016 (OB)
