Fabulous Chardonnay from Ridge, the best Estate Chardonnay I ever remember tasting from there. Rich, long, pure, oozing with class. Filled with intense, slightly floral citrus/apple fruit on top of a mineral-laden core. Some toasty oak in the foreground that is perfectly integrated with the fruit and acid. Towered over a $50 Meursault Tillets tasted next to it, in every respect. Exceedingly refreshing and untiring to the palate. - HK 2012-12-04
