Tasting Notes

“A luminous pale-straw complexion envelops the glass. In harmony, the wine offers pleasing aromatics of jasmine, Granny Smith apple, orange blossom, poached pear, honey-lemon, and roasted marshmallow. The entry is assertive with bright acidity that quickly softens to a largess of flavors including crème brulée, white peach, tangerine oil, honey-suckle, and roasted marshmallow. An engaging mineral note is present throughout the tasting juxtaposed with the right amount of supple texture to provide balance. The finish is lively and radiant with a stony tinge reflecting the provenance.”

 

Robert Parker – 92 Points

“One of his most popular wines is the creatively packaged 2014 Chardonnay Mannequin.  The label alone would draw plenty of interest. This wine, primarily Chardonnay with a few percent of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Muscat and Roussane, was aged sur lie for nine months in 40% French oak.  It is no shy wine at 15.5% alcohol and there is plenty of it- 8,073 cases, which is good because it is a hot-selling wine to the least. This wine offers notes of brioche, white peach, honeysuckle and citrus oil in a full-bodied intense style, but with terrific acidity and rather restrained oak. The wine is rich, ripe and impressive.  Drink it over the next 3-4 years.”
