2017 Benovia La Pommeraie Russian River Valley Chardonnay

14.5% alc.. · Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. A hint of reduction, lemon oil and buttery brioche on the nose. Refined and more steely and acid-driven with bright lemon notes that last through the lengthy finish. Subtle flavors of vanilla, green apple and butterscotch add interest. Very clean and bracing with a refreshing demeanor. An outstanding Chardonnay primed for shellfish. Score: 94. Reviewed June 4, 2019
