Ratings & Tasting Notes:
97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons explodes from the glass with bombastic lime cordial, pink grapefruit and rhubarb pie scents with suggestions of fresh ginger, green mango and acacia honey plus a touch of praline. Full-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully savory undercurrent with brioche nuances complementing the powerful tropical fruit, framed by great freshness, finishing with epic length. (LPB) (10/2019)
96-97 points James Suckling
This shows lots of flesh and richness, yet it remains very fresh and energetic. Lots of ginger and baked apples with hints of cream, lemon and lime. (1/2019)
96 points Wine Spectator
Voluptuous and unctuous, featuring intensely pure flavors of baked pear, apple pastry and melon confit that are powerfully structured. Sage cream and butter accents show midpalate, with a long, rich finish that offers lemon curd notes. *Highly Recommended* (KM) (7/2019)
95 points Vinous
The 2017 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons is just as impressive from bottle as it was from tank a few months ago. In 2017, the Hyde stands out for its creamy, harmonious personality. Lemon confit, marzipan and dried pear and floral notes all meld together in this beautifully textured, open-knit Chardonnay from Mark Aubert. (AG) (5/2019)
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
