Edge Hill Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
Russian River Valley – 750ml

Edge Hill Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay 2013 Russian River Valley  - K. Laz Wine Collection

This continues to be one of my favorite Chardonnays coming out of California today. Sourced as a heritage vineyard for Edge Hill, the famed Bacigalupi Vineyard first garnered the attention of the world when in the 1978 Paris Tasting, the winning Chateau Montelena Chardonnay came from this old vine Chardonnay site. Today, those same vines are what makes this Edge Hill Chardonnay so special. “The 2013’s nose shows beautiful complexity with notes of hazelnut, French oak, crushed granite, pear and white flowers – aromas pour from the glass as it receives more air. On the palate, the wine opens smoothly but quickly builds to a powerful intensity. The old vine minerality commonly associated with the Bacigalupi’s historic vineyards is very present and distinctive. The wine expresses itself in an unmistakably Burgundian fashion customarily difficult to capture in California, truly evoking the great chateaux of the Cote du Beane. The French oak is well integrated and the natural acidity in the wine will keep it fresh for many years.”
