This is one of the best Chardonnays coming out of California today and with 70 cases produced for this newest vintage of 2018, we will sell out of this before their next vintage release. Like in previous vintages, the Pont Neuf 'Le Pont Neuf' 2018 Chardonnay comes from Lancel Creek Vineyard and is comprised solely of the Montrachet clone from a single vineyard block on this famed Russian River Valley site. The vineyard, only 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean, is comprised of an unusually powdery white Goldridge soil. The pale Goldridge soil provides excellent drainage and just enough nutrients for the densely planted vines to ripen a small amount of intensely aromatic and flavorful Chardonnay. "Seductive aromas of honeycomb, crystallized lemon peel, and Freesia are accompanied by a pliant and luxurious mouthfeel. A fine thread of minerality runs through this wine, giving structure and making it fit to age for at least a decade."
