Nicolas Jay 2019 Chardonnay
2019 Nicolas Jay Chardonnay “Affinities” Willamette Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 94 Points
Still a bit youthfully tight yet already quite impressive, the nose of this beauty layers white peach, fresh and baked green apple and lemon above hints of pumpkin pie spice and honey-drenched nuts. On the palate piquant zest and hazelnut husk notes create a firm, sleek mouth-feel to frame-in flavors of lemon, tarte tatin, pear skin white peach and sea shell. The finish is extremely long and notably food-worthy. Expect three years of improvement but don’t be afraid to enjoy it now. 359 cases produced.
