If it wasn’t for the Point Rouge, the 2017 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene would have been my favorite in this stacked lineup. Coming from a barrel selection from the estate vineyards, it offers an extraordinary bouquet of honeyed citrus, toasted brioche, white flowers, a hint of marine-like salinity, and caramelized apples. This is followed by a full-bodied Chardonnay that has a concentrated mid-palate, building structure and acidity, and a liqueur of rocks-like minerality on the finish. It’s a flawlessly put together Chardonnay that’s going to benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for over a decade. (6/2019)

The 2017 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene springs from the glass with graceful lemon and pear drops scents followed by wafts of honeycomb, ginger ale, jasmine and nutmeg plus hints of sassafras, fragrant hay and almond croissant. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has impressive elegance for this generally more decadent vintage, featuring loads of mineral and savory sparks and seamless freshness, finishing long and with an edifying perfume.

Vibrant and pure-tasting, with notes of dried sage to the mineral-driven Fuji apple, Asian pear and white currant flavors. Flinty accents emerge midpa
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
