2016 Paul Lato “Belle dé jour” Duvarita Vineyard Santa Barbara County Chardonnay

14.5% alc., $70. · Light golden pear color in the glass. Enticing aromas of pear, lemon zest, pineapple and wet cement really gain expression over time in the glass. Very friendly on the palate, with great energy and balance, featuring flavors of green apple and lemon-lime backed by spritely acidity. A high-collared wine with an edge character that combines delicious fruit with energetic acidity in a harmonious blend. Score: 95. Reviewed June 9, 2018
