Bacigalupi 2018 Chardonnay Estate
2018 Bacigalupi Chardonnay “Estate” Russian River Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score: 93 Points
NVWE Notes: The characteristic flavor profile of this fabled vineyard is immediately identifiable in the nose of this wine, as scents of tarte tatin, baked green apple, peach melba, honey, vanilla and hazelnut nougat all surge-forth. It proves as rounded and supple as expected on the palate, where the creamy-juicy flavors of baked apple, poached pear, dry peach, orange melon, honey, nutmeg and toasted meringue linger with a slightly plump textural impression yet it still proves appropriately dinner-balanced. Built for rich entrees, it is ready to enjoy. 450 cases produced.
