2016 Lucie 'Dutton Ranch' Chardonnay Russian River

$49.95
WE90

This Dutton Ranch Chardonnay, grown in prized Goldridge soil, is an understated beauty. 10 months in French oak, plus restrained malolactic fermentation, keeps the overall impression crisp and refreshing, with citrus notes balanced by meringue and richness balanced by minerality. This does cartwheels across that fine line between buttery and applelicious.

Wine Enthusiast

High-toned in fleshy peach and apricot with a nod of Good & Plenty licorice, this big-boned, structured and lushly crafted wine stands out with its complement of rich concentrated fruitiness and toasty oak.
