Girard Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2015

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  276675

This big, broad shouldered and rich chardonnay shows plenty of complexity and nuance. The aromas and flavours are based on ripe peachy fruit with gentle almond, spice, peat smoke and some butteriness. It spent 12 month on its lees in 35% new French oak. It is quite full bodied and lushly textured but held together by good Russian River acidity. The length is excellent. Score - 91. (David Lawrason,, Aug. 1, 2018)
